All users of the account that have files and permissions to share files can create project folders. In this guide you will learn how to create a project folder using our API calls.  

To create a project folder, follow these steps:

  1.  Log in to the account using GET /session/login.

  2.  Get id from GET /file/metadata.

  3.  Create the directory with a target - home ID using POST /file/makedir

    If the target (location of the project folder) is not within the home folder of the user, follow these steps instead of this one:

    3.1 Choose the required folder ID from the list provided in the response.

    3.2 Get the folder content using GET /file/metadata.

  4. Get a list of users available for sharing the given project folder with GET /account/roles.

  5. Create a project folder using POST /project-folder/create with the following parameters:



Default Value





name of the project folder that is displayed for other users




the ID of the folder which you would like to convert to a Project Folder.

You can get it from POST /file/makedir.
