Is there a way to script Smart Sync?

New member | Level 2

Hello, my users have requested the ability to have files automatically switch to cloud-only smart sync if they haven't opened them in X weeks. I've not been able to find guindance so far for terminal scripting such changes. I can see the properties with the command "ls -la@" , but am unsure how to manipulate them without interacting in the GUI.

There is no command line interface for Smart Sync, and the Dropbox API has no support for managing Smart Sync settings. The only way to manage Smart SYnc is through the Dropbox GUI.
