The images in this folder do not reflect their containing folder's name in their public id as they were moved there in Dynamic folder mode, as a result when i try to fetch all the photos a that folder it results null.

CODE:

const fetchMediaFromFolder = async (folderPath) => {  try {    const result = await cloudinary.api.resources({      type: 'upload',      prefix: folderPath,      resource_type: 'image',     });    return result.resources;  } catch (error) {    throw new Error('Error fetching media from folder: ' + error.message);  }};

This results Null on fetchMediaFromFolder('Tarang "23') even though it have multiple images.

    have you tried resources_by_asset_folder? not sure but it might work
    https://cloudinary.com/documentation/admin_api#get_resources_by_asset_folder

    const fetchMediaFromFolder = async (folderPath) => {
    try {
    const result = await cloudinary.api.resources_by_asset_folder({
    asset_folder: folderPath,
    resource_type: 'image',
    });
    return result.resources;
    } catch (error) {
    throw new Error('Error fetching media from folder: ' + error.message);
    }
    };

    fetchMediaFromFolder('Tarang "23"');

    Hi @Harshit_2004,

    I see you deleted all the folders. When looking at our logs, it seems it was the format of the text you were passing as we were raising the following error:

    AppException: Query Error (at position 18) 'folder=Tarang "23 ➥➥➥'
    

    Happy to investigate further if you recreate the folder.

    Best,

    Loic
