get email addresses of members of your shared_folders

Re: get email addresses of members of your shared_folders

That's quite helpful... thanks!  But I notice this in the documentation:

  • The membership field only contains users who have joined the shared folder and does not include users who have been invited but have not accepted.

The major goal I had for this feature was to write a script to report on the sharing of a large number of folders among many users.  For proper data security, I want to be able to ascertain anybody who might have access to a folder, even if they have not yet accepted an old invitation.

I can see how, prior to acceptance of the invite, your system wouldn't treat it as a user account linked to the folder, but instead simply an email address that was invited (and the act of inviting someone maybe shouldn't expose their name and uid to me prior to acceptance); but for thoroughness it would be good to be able to retrieve the listing of pending invites in the same shared_folders call, maybe under a different array called something like "pending_invitees" or some such thing containing just email addresses.  This information is, after all, visible in the Dropbox web UI (along with the ability to retract or resend an invitation).

Hi Gregory,

I'm building in swift and it seems SwiftyDropbox is only capable of accessing API v1. Since I want to get users email addresses, is there a way to revert to API v1 so that this is possible?

Note: this is a follow up to your last comment above made on: April 26, 2016 13:38

 

Thanks!

Hi Julian, I imagine that's a typo and you meant to say that "SwiftyDropbox is only capable of accessing API v2".

Anyway, it's not possible to use SwiftyDropbox to access API v1. 

If you wanted to though, you could technically use API v1, either via the HTTP endpoints, or the iOS Core SDK. Note that API v1 is deprecated though, so that's not recommended.

Hi Gregory, thanks, yea that's what I meant.

Is there a plan to make getting emails from folder members available for API v2? If so, by when?

Thanks!
