It's not currently available, and we don't have any plans to share regarding potentially adding support for File Requests to the Dropbox API, but I'll be sure to pass this along as a feature request!

I could really use this feature at the API level.  I need to be able to create a File Request in code so I can email the link to clients.  Why would this not be part of the API?  Very useful feature to have, I strongly encourage it to be added.  Btw, I use the Java Core API.

Just adding another +1 here. File Requests are one of the most potentially useful features Dropbox has, but if its not programmatic its nearly useless.

Thanks for the feedback everyone! It's very helpful in determining how to prioritize features like this.

Adding another +1 here – the ability to programmatically upload files to a File Request would be great to have.

Steven, I think I understand the use cases for programmatically creating a file request, but I haven't heard many requests yet to programmatically upload a file to an existing file request.

Would you mind describing your use case?

Steve M. I would be glad to go into further detail about how it would be useful for us but for not sufice it to say: This would be a huge improvement for us and our ability to utilize Dropbox.  it would increase our ability to work with clients and their submission of documents much more efficiently and securely.
