Details

This integration uses pre-built, source-available 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:Emit new 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:0.0.16
Key:dropbox-all-updates

Dropbox Overview

The Dropbox API on Pipedream enables you to automate file and folder operations, streamlining workflows that involve storing, syncing, and sharing content. With this API, you can programmatically manage files, set up event-driven triggers based on changes within Dropbox, and leverage Pipedream's capabilities to connect with hundreds of other apps for extended automation scenarios. It's ideal for building custom file management solutions, archiving systems, or collaborative content workflows without writing extensive code.

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:
