Dropbox credentials#

You can use these credentials to authenticate the following nodes:


Supported authentication methods#

  • API access token: For use only with your user account
  • OAuth2: For distribution to other users

Refer to Dropbox's Developer documentation for more information about the service.

Using access token#

To configure this credential, you'll need:

  • An Access Token: Once you've created your app, access Settings > OAuth 2 and select the option to Generate an access token. Use that access token in your n8n credential. Refer to the Dropbox App Console Settings documentation for more information.
  • An App Access Type: Choose between App Folder and Full Dropbox. Your selection should match the Type of access you created your app with.

Using OAuth2#

Note for n8n Cloud users

Cloud users don't need to provide connection details. Select Connect my account to connect through your browser.

If you need to configure OAuth2 from scratch or need more detail on what's happening in the OAuth web flow, refer to the instructions in the Dropbox Implementing OAuth documentation to set up OAuth.
