Authentication

Dropbox uses OAuth authentication. When you connect your Dropbox account, Pipedream will open a popup window where you can sign into Dropbox and grant Pipedream permission to connect to your account. Pipedream securely stores and automatically refreshes the OAuth tokens so you can easily authenticate any Dropbox API.

Pipedream requests the following authorization scopes when you connect your account:

OAuth Request Configurations:
  1. authorization
    GEThttps://www.dropbox.com/oauth2/authorize?client_id={{oauth.client_id}}&redirect_uri={{oauth.redirect_uri}}&state={{oauth.state}}&response_type=code&scope={{oauth.space_separated_scopes}}&token_access_type=offline
  2. accessToken
    POSThttps://www.dropbox.com/oauth2/tokencontent-type: application/x-www-form-urlencodedaccept: application/json
    client_id={{oauth.client_id}}&client_secret={{oauth.client_secret}}&redirect_uri={{oauth.redirect_uri}}&grant_type=authorization_code&code={{oauth.code}}
  3. refreshToken
    POSThttps://www.dropbox.com/oauth2/tokencontent-type: application/x-www-form-urlencodedaccept: application/json
    client_id={{oauth.client_id}}&client_secret={{oauth.client_secret}}&grant_type=refresh_token&refresh_token={{oauth.refresh_token}}

Integrating Location Data into Pipedream Workflows
Integrating Location Data into Pipedream Workflows
Over the past few months, I've become somewhat enamored with a new service called Pipedream. Pipedream is yet another serverless solution with a bit of a twist. It makes it easy to build workflows by piecing together various actions like LEGO bricks. These actions are small pieces of programming logic that cover a wide variety of different services. You can connect these actions together along with the ability to write Node code for your own logic.
