In order for the software to access and migrate content from all users' Dropbox Business drives, you will need to generate and supply an Access Token which grants access to the Dropbox Business API.
To generate your Dropbox Business Access Token, please perform the following steps:
1.Login to https://www.dropbox.com/developers/apps using your Team Admin account.
2.Go to the My apps section and click Create App
3.On the new app creation page, select the following options
§Choose an API: Scoped Access
§Choose the type of access you need: Full Dropbox
§Name your app: enter any name
Agree to Dropbox Terms and Conditions by selecting the box next to the prompt, and the Click Create App.
4.When the app is created, it should open the App Settings page. If it does not, return back to the My apps section and open this newly created app and click on the Settings tab.
5.Locate the "Generated access token" option and click the Generate button.
6.Copy the access token that appears to a file for safe keeping. This token is required for connection.
This may be necessary when you have a Dropbox Business team group assigned to a shared folder that you want to translate into an Azure Active Directory group in your Office 365 environment.
First, open the Shared view of the folder that you want to map the group from.
As we can see in the screenshot above, "TestGroup" is the group. When we would migrate this as-is (with no mapping) into OneDrive for Business a SharePoint group will be created with the same name "TestGroup".
If you would like to translate this into an existing Azure AD Group, we first need to locate the "Account" name of this Azure AD group. You can find the "Account" value by opening the User Information view for this group in either a SharePoint Online or OneDrive for Business site.
Copy the Account out of this screen for the group that you want to map into.
Make a new entry in your User Mapping file for the group.
As you can see, use the information from the Dropbox Business side on the leftmost column and use the information from your SharePoint side on the rightmost column. When you use this mapping file, your group should map from the Dropbox Business group to your existing AD group in OneDrive for Business.
Due to the differences between permissions in Dropbox Business versus those in OneDrive for Business, the following permission mapping is performed during the migration. If you wish to not include permissions, simply uncheck the "Copy Permissions" option during configuration.
Dropbox Business Shared Folder Permission Level
OneDrive for Business Permission Level
The "Copy Permissions" option migrates shared permissions assigned to Dropbox Business folders and files. By default files permissions is not enabled. Turning this option on will allow you to copy file level permissions from the source account to Office 365 Locations. In order to do this, you must enable the Copy Permissions checkbox, as well as enable the Copy Permissions options in the Copy Wizard.
NOTE: The Copy Permissions option will not work, even if it is enabled in the Profile Manager, if the Copy Permissions option is disabled in the copy wizard.
In order to enable the Copy Permissions option, do the following:
1.Navigate to the Help tab within Essentials and select Profile Manager.
2.Within the Profile Manager, select the General Tab, and then check the Copy Permissions option.
3.Once you are done making your changes, exiting the wizard will prompt you to confirm you want to save your changes. Click yes.
The following Dropbox Business objects are not supported when migrating to OneDrive for Business or SharePoint Online.
·External user accounts are not supported. But if an external user is a collaborator and has permissions to some connection and was mentioned in the content metadata (core properties), then migration of this permission and metadata is supported.
·Objects in the "Deleted Files"
