List trashed items


Retrieves the files and folders that have been moved to the trash.

Any attribute in the full files or folders objects can be passed in with the fields parameter to retrieve those specific attributes that are not returned by default.

This endpoint defaults to use offset-based pagination, yet also supports marker-based pagination using the marker parameter.



Query Parameters

stringin queryoptional

The direction to sort results in. This can be either in alphabetical ascending (ASC) or descending (DESC) order.

Value is one of ASC,DESC

string arrayin queryoptional

A comma-separated list of attributes to include in the response. This can be used to request fields that are not normally returned in a standard response.

Be aware that specifying this parameter will have the effect that none of the standard fields are returned in the response unless explicitly specified, instead only fields for the mini representation are returned, additional to the fields requested.

integer / int64in queryoptional

The maximum number of items to return per page.

stringin queryoptional

Defines the position marker at which to begin returning results. This is used when paginating using marker-based pagination.

This requires usemarker to be set to true.

integer / int64in queryoptional

The offset of the item at which to begin the response.

Queries with offset parameter value exceeding 10000 will be rejected with a 400 response.

stringin queryoptional

Defines the second attribute by which items are sorted.

Items are always sorted by their type first, with folders listed before files, and files listed before web links.

This parameter is not supported when using marker-based pagination.

Value is one of name,date,size

booleanin queryoptional

Specifies whether to use marker-based pagination instead of offset-based pagination. Only one pagination method can be used at a time.

By setting this value to true, the API will return a marker field that can be passed as a parameter to this endpoint to get the next page of the response.



Returns a list of items that have been deleted

application/jsonClient error

Returns an error if some of the parameters are missing or not valid.

  • invalid_parameter can appear when the sort, direction or offset parameter is provided when using marker based pagination, or when the marker parameter is provided but usemarker is set to false or null.
application/jsonClient error

An unexpected client error.
