Thanks for surfacing this thread, and apologies it wasn't answered! (Sometimes threads get posted in the wrong section and only later moved to the correct section so the right people don't get notified like in this case.)

 

Anyway, looking at the original question, I see it was regarding getting a 'no_permission' error from /2/sharing/share_folder. That's a somewhat general error that means "The current user does not have permission to perform this action.". There are a few reasons that that can occur.

 

@dboxdev Apologies for the delay, but are you still seeing this issue or have you resolved it already? Let us know if you're still seeing it and we'll be happy to help. 

 

@Tomy23 Are you also seeing the same issue? If so, can you share the specifics in your case so we can take a look and advise? Thanks!
