Dropbox Business - Connection Requirements

To connect to Dropbox Business, you must:

I.Create an app to allow Essentials to connect to Dropbox.

II.Obtain the information needed to connect to Dropbox from Essentials.

III.Ensure your Dropbox account has the required permissions.

DropBox has deprecated long-term tokens for the Dropbox business account. When connecting to Dropbox from within Essentials, you will be required to obtain an Access Code.  This code will generate an  Access Token that will be automatically refreshed, as needed, when a migration is run.

info

NOTE: If you have an existing long-term Access Token that was generated for an earlier release of Essentials, you can continue to use it. However, whenever a new Access Token is created (via the Access Code), it will always be a short-term token.

To create a new app to allow Essentials to connect to Dropbox:

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
