difference between download to download shared content

difference between download to download shared content

Saar A.

hey,

when I download files that are shared I get the download_files event instead of shared_content_team_download. Have any idea how to get(when using get_events) the shared_content_team_download event?

Per the documentation, the "download_files" event is triggered when you "download files from the webapp". It sounds like you're downloading a file via the web app as the owner, which will trigger that event even if the file happens to be shared. The other events are about the downloading of shared content by another team member via the sharing mechanism.

 

Further, it notes that "the events shared_content_team_download and shared_content_nonteam_download will eventually replace shmodel_team_download and shmodel_nonteam_download."
