Dropbox Business API Provider Setup

On this page

To authenticate a Dropbox Business element instance you must use a developer account to create an application for Dropbox. After you register an app, record the App key, App secret, and Redirect URIs. You use these when you authenticate an element instance as the API Key, API Secret, and Callback URL. If you plan to use events, also configure the Webhook URIs.
