Remove Shared Link

Remove Shared Link

A shared link may be removed from a resource by calling the update file or update folder or update weblink endpoint and setting the shared_link value to null.

If you delete the shared link and create a new one, the new shared link will have a different URL and users with the old URL will not be able to access the resource.

To remove a shared link on a file, specify the ID of file to set the shared_link field to null.

info.removeSharedLink();
file.updateInfo(info);

client.files.update('12345', {
  shared_link: null
}).then(file => {
  // ...
})

client.files.deleteSharedLink(fileId: "11111") { (result: Result<Void, BoxSDKError>) in
    guard case .success = result else {
        print("Error removing file shared link")
        return
    }
