Details

This integration uses pre-built, open source components from Pipedream's GitHub repo. These components are developed by Pipedream and the community, and verified and maintained by Pipedream.

To contribute an update to an existing component or create a new component, create a PR on GitHub. If you're new to Pipedream component development, you can start with quickstarts for trigger span and action development, and then review the component API reference.

Trigger

Description:Emits an event when a file or folder is added or modified. Make sure the number of files/folders in the watched folder does not exceed 4000.
Version:0.0.4
Key:dropbox-new-or-modified-file-or-folder

Dropbox Overview

With the Dropbox API, you can build a variety of applications that range from
simple file sharing to complex content management systems. Some examples of
what you can build using the Dropbox API include:

  • A file sharing application that allows users to share and sync files across
    devices
  • A content management system that allows users to manage and share files and
    folders
  • A note taking application that allows users to sync notes across devices
  • A task management application that allows users to manage and share tasks and
    files
  • A document management application that allows users to manage and share
    documents and files

Trigger 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:

Version:0.0.2
Key:ip2location-query-ip-info

IP2Location Overview

IP2Location provides a number of API calls that can be used to determine the
location of an IP address. This can be useful for a number of applications,
including:

  • Determining the location of a user for targeted content
  • Tracking the location of a user for security purposes
  • Allowing or blocking access to content based on location
  • And more!

Action Authentication

IP2Location uses API keys for authentication. When you connect your IP2Location account, Pipedream securely stores the keys so you can easily authenticate to IP2Location APIs in both code and no-code steps.

Access your API key from the License section in your IP2Location account in order to make authenticated requests to their API.
