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.

Action 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:
