Swift Box: Get Folder Collaborations

Back to Index

Returns all of the folder's collaborations. This API does not support paging -- it always returns all of the collaborations. Each collaboration object has details on which user or group has access to the file and with what role.

        print("ConnectFailReason: \(rest.ConnectFailReason.intValue)")

    rest.AddHeader("Authorization", value: "Bearer BOX_ACCESS_TOKEN")
