Connect Apps to Dropbox
The Dropbox social connection allows users to log in to your application using their Dropbox profile.
By default, Auth0 automatically syncs user profile data with each user login, thereby ensuring that changes made in the connection source are automatically updated in Auth0. Optionally, you can disable user profile data synchronization to allow for updating profile attributes from your application.
Before you begin, sign up for a Dropbox Developer account.
To connect your app to Dropbox, you will:
Set up app in Dropbox
Set up an app using Dropbox's App Console: Creating a Dropbox App documentation. During this process, Dropbox will generate an App key and App secret for your application; make note of these.
While setting up your app, use the following settings:

|Choose an API||Dropbox API.|
|Choose the type of access you need||Appropriate options depending on your needs.|
|App name||Your application name.|

If you are using custom domains, your redirect URI will have the following format:
