Dropbox Search API: /files/search is being retired in favor of /files/search_v2

Hi,

We’re reaching out to notify you of an upcoming change to the Dropbox API that may affect your app(s), which are using the /2/files/search endpoint on the Dropbox API.

Starting on February 28th, 2021, the deprecated /2/files/search endpoint will be retired. At that point, any further calls to /2/files/search will fail. Please migrate your app to /2/files/search_v2.

All existing features have been migrated to /2/files/search_v2 and several improvements have been made. In addition to enhanced performance and reliability, we’ve added support for many new file types and added new features such as filtering by file extension. You can read more about it in the recent blog post, Search Files Using the Dropbox API. If you have questions or need help, you can post on our developer forum or submit a support ticket directly.

Thank you for your attention! We hope you enjoy the new features available on the Search API.

Sincerely,

  • DBX Platform Team

Best regards
Heiko
