Creating a Photo Album via Cloud Drive REST API

Hi, I can create a folder using the API just fine. But is there a special attribute or other mechanism for creating a photo album? Thanks for any guidance! Bryan

Any thoughts on this one? I've done some more digging through the docs but I can't find anything specific. I suspect I'm missing something obvious but any guidance is appreciated. Thanks! Bryan

Hi there, Apologies for the delay in response! I believe Albums have just been released, but I will pass this to the team as a feature request to be accessed programmatically. Thanks! Jamie

Thanks for the response! I imagine that means that the only way to accomplish this would be to have the user convert the folder (that was created via API) into an album. Is that right? I ask in case there's a different API that might work for this. Thanks again!

Hi there! Thats sounds like the only way it would be possible at the moment, but I'll add your feedback to the request as I do see the need for this. Unfortunately, I cannot give an ETA on this. Thanks! Jamie

I'm not sure I understand the usefulness of an "album", but I'm being asked by a couple of users why my app doesn't show their albums that they created via the Cloud Drive website. Is there a plan to update the API to include support for albums?

I've added this as a feature request, but support should still be added. Unfortunately, I cannot provide an ETA on this however. Jamie

Any progress on this, three years later?
