I am using the Box CLI to move files into an archive folder which is owner by another user, using the process outlined in this post (the response by Murtza 3 posts down: https://community.box.com/t5/Platform-and-Development-Forum/Is-there-a-API-to-transfer-ownership-of-folder-s-to-another/td-p/50536)
Now this all works fine when moving a normal folder.
However, if I try and move a subfolder of a collaborated folder, it gives me an error when moving (using box folders:move to move after adding the collaborators):
Unexpected API Response [400 Bad Request | uiufv6ghezj5shzi.0cc573e654e0834fc06f3bd8bb6a6f035] cannot_make_collaborated_subfolder_private - Cannot move a collaborated subfolder to a private folder unless the new owner is explicitly specified.
Cannot move a collaborated folder to a private folder unless the new owner is explicitly specified
Specify the ID of the user that the content should be transferred to by setting the owned_by.id field in the request.
So this is all very well, however the according to the API box folders:move does not have any options for setting the new owner during the move. The destination user is already co-owner so there is nothing more I can add.
Is this just missing from Box CLI, and if so is there anything I can do to fix this?
