Hi there,

 

I used the https://api.dropboxapi.com/2/files/search_v2 request to search for a file and obtain its id.

 

However, when I then use this same file id in the https://api.dropboxapi.com/2/file_requests/get request it returns the error 

".tag""not_found".
 
Does anyone know what the issue is here?

The /2/file_requests/get endpoint is for retrieving the information about a 'file request', not a file itself. (A "file request" is a way to receive files from other people.)

 

To get the data for a particular file, you should instead call /2/files/download.
