Dropbox is a cloud file sharing and storage platform. The Dropbox connector allows you enforce a compliance lifecycle across Dropbox content. Managing Dropbox content with Records365 ensures that content is classified, retained and disposed off in a defensible manner.
The Dropbox connector only supports Dropbox business accounts. In addition, the Dropbox connector currently only manages content in team folders. Please see the following documentation for more information on Team Folders in Dropbox.
A Dropbox administrator account is required in order to link Records365 to a Dropbox.
Now that the connector instance has been created, we need to complete the authorization for the connector to manage your Dropbox account.
This should be selected in consultation with the Records Management function of your organization, because once the aggregation level is set and the Connector is Enabled for the first time, it cannot be modified.
Managed Folders in Dropbox
The Managed Dropbox Folders feature allows you to whitelist which Dropbox Team Folders are in-scope for management by Records365. At least one (1) whitelisted team folder must be specified when configuring the Dropbox connector. Nested team folders are supported for managing a specific location within a hierachy of team folders.
Connectors are Disabled by default. This means no content will be submitted from the connector until the connector is Enabled. Before enabling a Connector, ensure that all rules have been set up first otherwise your records will be uncategorized. To complete the rules setup refer to Rules.
