Dropbox API Support & Feedback

Don't think a webhook is triggered on restore of any object to a registered app.
Delete's work fine, creation of folders/file all register fine via a webhook.
But if you use the web app to restore a previously deleted object, no hooks triggered.
This makes it hard to resync to our apps on restored files without doing a non-event driven method of syncing (ie polling the entire world of our user base).
Brian, are you able to provide more detailed steps to reproduce the issue. I have tried to reproduce myself and am unable to. Any time I restore a deleted file or folder via the web interface, a webhook is triggered and received by my test app.
1. User Logs into their dropbox account via an internet browser (ie chrome, firefox, etc)
2. User deletes a folder
3. User recovers the folder via online methods
Items 1 and 2 do end up firing proper webhooks. Item 3, does not fire any notifier, ie that we need to do whatever we need to do in cases of files being 'undeleted'
We'll need to investigate this specifically. Please open an API ticket with the following information for a case where you've seen this so we can work on tracking this down:
- the app key
- the webhook URI
- the user ID
- the timestamp of the restoration
Thanks in advance!
