HTTP APIFolder Permissions HTTP API

Folder Permissions API

This API can be used to update/get the permissions for a folder.

Permissions with folderId=-1 are the default permissions for users with the Viewer and Editor roles. Permissions can be set for a user, a team or a role (Viewer or Editor). Permissions cannot be set for Admins - they always have access to everything.

The permission levels for the permission field:

  • 1 = View
  • 2 = Edit
  • 4 = Admin
