get_account_batch error 409

get_account_batch error 409

Hi There,

For one of our customer we are getting 409 when making "get_account_batch". With error saying the account does not exists. 

I am trying to reproduce the error, so I deleted one user from our dropbox account, but even after deleting the user I still get valid response for the api "get_account_batch".

Do I have to wait for some time before I start seeing the error for the delted user?

Yes, data for individual accounts take some time to be fully deleted. You can find more information here:

https://www.dropbox.com/help/security/delete-account

Note that a successful /2/users/get_account_batch response will contain a 'disabled" property for each account to indicated if it is deleted. Also, if you just deleted a member on a team, that will just be considered a deleted member of the team and you will continue to be able to look it up.

If you want to test a failed call, here's a sample account ID this is no longer valid: 'dbid:AAAVrxXoItpge28Zx_8dPIStqC8n3NCwumU'.

Thanks for the repsonse , actually I wanted to test a case where I have files uploaded by a user account then delete the account. So, I cant use the id provided by you. 

Anyway I will wait for the account to be deleted.
