propertySearch result is messed in Android SDK 3.0.5

Hi!
I'm trying to use Dropbox as a backup platform for my app. To store files on your side I use informative file names and properties to keep original file names and tagging files that are generated by my app.

Here is an example:
Tag key name is "CACR", tag value is "CACR"
Original filename key name is "CACRFLNM", value is "mic_20180109-134934.amr"
Dropbox path is /<appname>/Dictaphone record (mic) 2018-01-09 13:49:34.amr. The file is alone, previous similar files were deleted.

But when I perform request like
PropertiesSearchQuery query = new PropertiesSearchQuery("CACR", PropertiesSearchMode.fieldName("CACR"));
PropertiesSearchResult psr = dropboxClient_.fileProperties().propertiesSearch(Collections.singletonList(query));

It returns me entry with correct dropbox path but totally messed CACRFLNM property. Seems that value of CACRFLNM belongs to another file earlier created.

Please clarify that behavior. I'm trying to perform batch requests by property tags because accessing properties for each file separately is too long.

 

Thank you!

Hi!

Sorry to say, but it seems that properties API was broken again. In my case "propertiesSearch" returns already removed entries or an empty list.

Please rectify that, because my app can't work properly.
