files/save_url fails every for apps with Permission type: Team member file access

files/save_url fails every for apps with Permission type: Team member file access

Calling files/save_url with an app with "Permission type: Team member file access" adds the requirment of "Dropbox-API-Select-User" as a header.

Even with the propper header pass it instantly fails with

 

{"error_summary": "download_failed/.", "error": {".tag": "download_failed"}}

 

Same exact code works when use an app with "Permission type: Full Dropbox"

Thanks for the report. This is a known issue, but I don't have a timeline for a fix unfortunately. Please do use a full Dropbox app as a workaround for now. Apologies for the trouble.

Apologies for the long delay! Team member file access apps can now use the /save_url endpoint.

Need more support?
