2.Go to the My apps section and click Create App

Dropbox Business - Group Mapping

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.
Dropbox-Group-Shared-View

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.
Dropbox-ODFB-AD-Group-AccountName

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.
Dropbox-OD-GroupMapping-File

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.

Dropbox Business - Content Permissions and Mapping

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.

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. 
 

info

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.
Drives dropbox permissions 1

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.
