I have read the webhook documentation and am struggling to understand how I can implement webhooks for all the files/folders in an account. Basically I simply want notifications of any change to a file or folder such as rename, move, copy, delete, upload that would affect the name or path.
The problem is the limitations, it looks as if I have to create a webhook for every file or folder I want to monitor, and I am limited to 1000 webhooks. The limitations are clear that you cannot request a webhook on root and expect to receive notifications for anything below that. This does not look viable for an account with a reasonable number of files, for example 1500 folders and 6000 files would be completely impossible to monitor effectively if I reading the docs correctly.
Do you get notifications on files that are trashed, renamed, copied, moved or uploaded if you place a webhook on the parent folder?
Have I missed something or is this a known issue with the API?
