Dropbox API Support & Feedback
Find help with the Dropbox API from other developers.
I'm trying to access all files in a shared folder using the dropbox api "https://api.dropboxapi.com/2/files/list_folder".
When doing this I only get the folder. None of the contained files, even though i explicitly enable recursive folder traversal..
Am I doing something wrong or is it impossible to actually list files in a shared folder using the api?
My bad, I did not bother to check the cursor because the first call returned so few entries.
It turned out that calling "files/list_folder/continue" returned all the files contained in the shared folder

have been trying some more and stumbled across something interesting:
the shared folder appears empty if i list folders with path not set.
Hovever, if i set the path to '/sharedfolder/innerfolder' then i'm able to list all (sub)folders and files under 'innerfolder'
I'm glad to hear you already sorted this out. To confirm, yes, when using /2/files/list_folder[/continue], the app should always check the returned 'has_more' value and if it's true, call back using the returned 'cursor' to get more entries.
