Dropbox Single Sign-On Integration

The Dropbox Single Sign-on (SSO) Integration creates a client application that uses Auth0 for authentication and provides SSO capabilities for Dropbox. Your users log in to Dropbox with Auth0 identity providers, which means the identity provider performs the identity credentials verification.

Prerequisites

Before you begin:

  • Sign up for a Dropbox Business account.
  • Set up a connection, which is a source of users. Connections can be databases, social identity providers, or enterprise identity providers, and can be shared among different applications. You may set up more than one connection for use with SSO integrations.
  1. Navigate to Auth0 Dashboard > Applications > SSO Integrations, and click + Create SSO Integration. Create SSO Integration

  2. Select Dropbox. Select Service

  3. Click Continue to grant the integration access to the listed permissions. Authorize Service

Configure Auth0 SSO Integration

Enter a name for your SSO Integration, and click Save. Save Integration

Configure integration with Dropbox

To configure the integration with Dropbox, follow the instructions listed in the Tutorial view.

  2. Select the Authentication menu item on the left.

Choose the connections to use with your SSO integration. Users in enabled connections will be allowed to log in to Dropbox. By default, all configured connections are enabled.
