Dropbox authentication

Depending on the authentication type you select, you need one of the following credentials:

  • OAuth 2.0 Authorization code: the email and password associated with your Dropbox account.
  • Bring your own OAuth 2.0 app: Client ID, Client secret.

To learn how to create your own OAuth 2.0 application, see the Dropbox documentation.

Users who have two-factor authentication configured for their profiles also have to provide a six-digit code before the connection is established.

Add the Dropbox connection

To create a connection to your Dropbox instance, you need to perform the following steps:

  1. Select Integration Service from Automation Cloud.
  2. From the Connectors list, select Dropbox. You can also use the search bar to narrow down the connector.

  3. Select the Connect to Dropbox button.
  4. You can choose between two authentication types: OAuth 2.0 Authorization code or Bring your own OAuth 2.0 app.

  5. Enter the required credentials for your preferred authentication method and select Connect.
