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:
