class %MFT.Dropbox extends %MFT.API

The %MFT.Dropbox class is the subclass of %MFT.API which implements the APIs using Dropbox.
NOTE: Two different kinds of Dropbox applications (and hence two different %SYS.MFT.Connection.Dropbox objects) are needed in order to use the full API in this class. A connection based on a Dropbox User application with Full Dropbox permission is needed to manage files and folders. A connection based on a Dropbox Business application with Team Memeber Management permission is needed to manage users.

Methods

• classmethod CreateFolder(connection As %SYS.MFT.Connection.Dropbox, folderPath As %String, Output itemInfo As %MFT.ItemInfo) as %Status
Creates the remote folder at the specified folderPath. Each level of the folder path should be created separately if it does not already exist. An %MFT.ItemInfo object is returned for the new folder.
This method requires a connection based on a Dropbox User application with Full Dropbox permission.
• classmethod CreateUser(connection As %SYS.MFT.Connection.Dropbox, userInfo As %MFT.UserInfo) as %Status
Create a new user. The Userid and Detail properties are filled in by CreateUser if it is successful.
This method requires a connection based on a Dropbox Business application with Team Memeber Management permission.
• classmethod DeleteFile(connection As %SYS.MFT.Connection.Dropbox, path As %String, permanent As %Boolean = 0) as %Status
Delete the remote file. path may be a file path. path may also be specified as an id of the form "id:" which was obtained from a %MFT.ItemInfo object.
If permanent is true, then the file will be permanently deleted. Otherwise the file will be moved to trash.
The permanent argument is not yet implemented for Dropbox because using the permanently_delete API call requires a different type of connection than that used for files, folders or users. Dropbox support indicates that permanently_delete may be supported in the future for file API.
If the remote file does not exist at the specified path, then $$$OK is returned as status.
This method requires a connection based on a Dropbox User application with Full Dropbox permission.
• classmethod DeleteFolder(connection As %SYS.MFT.Connection.Dropbox, path As %String, permanent As %Boolean = 0) as %Status
Delete the remote folder. path may be a folder path. path may also be specified as an id of the form "id:" which was obtained from a %MFT.ItemInfo object.
If permanent is true, then the folder will be permanently deleted. Otherwise the folder will be moved to trash.

• classmethod DownloadStream(connection As %SYS.MFT.Connection.Dropbox, filePath As %String, ByRef stream As %BinaryStream) as %Status
Download the specified remote file and store in the specified stream which must be a %FileBinaryStream or a %GlobalBinaryStream. If stream is not specified, then a %GlobalBinaryStream will be created. filePath may be a file path. filePath may also be specified as an id of the form "id:" which was obtained from a %MFT.ItemInfo object.
This method requires a connection based on a Dropbox User application with Full Dropbox permission.
• classmethod GetFileInfo(connection As %SYS.MFT.Connection.Dropbox, path As %String, Output itemInfo As %MFT.ItemInfo) as %Status
Return the item info object which describes the specified file. path may be a file path. path may also be specified as an id of the form "id:" which was obtained from a %MFT.ItemInfo object. If a file does not exist at the specified path, then $$$OK is returned as status and itemInfo is returned as "".
This method requires a connection based on a Dropbox User application with Full Dropbox permission.
• classmethod GetFolderContents(connection As %SYS.MFT.Connection.Dropbox, folderPath As %String, recursive As %Boolean = 0, Output folderContents As %MFT.FolderContents) as %Status
Return the folder contents object for the specified folder. folderPath may be a folder path. folderPath may also be specified as an id of the form "id:" which was obtained from a %MFT.ItemInfo object. "" May be used as the folderPath to specify the current folder. The FolderContents object will include a list of %MFT.ItemInfo objects which contain a file or folder name and some additional simple information.
This method requires a connection based on a Dropbox User application with Full Dropbox permission.
• classmethod GetFolderInfo(connection As %SYS.MFT.Connection.Dropbox, path As %String, Output itemInfo As %MFT.ItemInfo) as %Status
Return the item info object which describes the specified folder. path may be a folder path. path may also be specified as an id of the form "id:" which was obtained from a %MFT.ItemInfo object. "" May be used as the path to specify the current folder. If a folder does not exist at the specified path, then $$$OK is returned as status and itemInfo is returned as "".
This method requires a connection based on a Dropbox User application with Full Dropbox permission.
• classmethod GetRequestId(connection As %SYS.MFT.Connection.Dropbox, itemInfo As %MFT.ItemInfo) as %String
Get the form of id for a file or folder that is most efficient for subsequent calls. GetRequestId will return either an id of the form "id:" or a full path depending on which is more efficient. This method is included to allow the id for future requests to be saved in the most efficient form.
• classmethod GetUser(connection As %SYS.MFT.Connection.Dropbox, username As %String, Output userInfo As %MFT.UserInfo) as %Status
Retrieve the %MFT.UserInfo specified by the username which is the email address for all currently supported services. GetUser is potentially less efficient than GetUserById. If the user does not exist, then $$$OK is returned as status and userInfo is returned as "".
This method requires a connection based on a Dropbox Business application with Team Memeber Management permission.
• classmethod GetUserById(connection As %SYS.MFT.Connection.Dropbox, userid As %String, Output userInfo As %MFT.UserInfo) as %Status

• classmethod MountFolder(connection As %SYS.MFT.Connection.Dropbox, folderName As %String) as %Status
MountFolder is a Dropbox specific method to mount a shared folder that was shared by a different user. MountFolder is needed since folders are not available to a user until he does the mount. Since Dropbox will always share folders at the root of the receiving user, only a folder name is needed. MountFolder must be executed using the connection for the user being shared with, not the owner's connection.
This method requires a connection based on a Dropbox User application with Full Dropbox permission.
• classmethod ShareFolder(connection As %SYS.MFT.Connection.Dropbox, path As %String, accessLevel As %String = "viewer", users As %List) as %Status
Share a folder with a list of users pass as a $list. path may be a folder path. path may also be specified as an id of the form "id:" which was obtained from a %MFT.ItemInfo object. The "editor" and "viewer" access levels are supported for all vendors. Any additional Dropbox access levels are also supported. A Dropbox user is specified as the email address associated with the account.
This method requires a connection based on a Dropbox User application with Full Dropbox permission.
• classmethod UnmountFolder(connection As %SYS.MFT.Connection.Dropbox, folderName As %String) as %Status
UnmountFolder is a Dropbox specific method to unmount a shared folder that was shared by a different user. UnmountFolder is needed since folders need to be mounted before a user different than the owner may access them even if they are shared. Since Dropbox will always share folders at the root of the receiving user, only a folder name is needed. UnmountFolder must be executed using the connection for the user being shared with, not the owner's connection.
This method requires a connection based on a Dropbox User application with Full Dropbox permission.
