NOTE:

This procedure is subject to change. For information about creating a Dropbox application, refer to the Dropbox developer documentation.

To create a Dropbox application to represent the connector

  1. Create a Dropbox user account.

  2. Create the application to represent the connector.

    NOTE:

    When you create the application, ensure that the Redirect URL matches the location where you will run the OAuth configuration tool, for example http://localhost:7878/, as specified by the RedirectURL parameter in the OAuth tool configuration file oauth_tool.cfg.

After you create the application, Dropbox will provide an application key and application secret.
