When the connector retrieves content from a single Dropbox account, or content from a Dropbox for Business account that is not in a shared folder, it creates a document for each file. Each document contains the path to the source file in a field named
Users in a Dropbox for Business team can share files with other users in the team. This section describes how the connector handles paths for these shared files.
Consider the following scenario:
/My/Shared/Folder, and they share this folder with User2.
The document is accessible from two locations:
The connector therefore indexes the following:
A metadata-only document that represents the shared folder from the perspective of User1. This document has only User1 in the ACL, and contains the following metadata:
A metadata-only document that represents the shared folder from the perspective of User2. This document has only User2 in the ACL, and contains the following metadata:
A document that represents
MyDocument.txt. This document includes the file content and the following metadata, and has both User1 and User2 in the ACL:
DROPBOX_PATH_IN_SHARED_FOLDER contains the path of the document relative to the shared folder. The field
DROPBOX_PARENT_SHARED_FOLDER_ID contains the ID of the shared folder.
You can obtain the full path of a document in a shared folder by concatenating the value from the field
DROPBOX_PATH_IN_SHARED_FOLDER to the value of the field
DROPBOX_PATH in the document that represents the shared folder. You can match the document to the correct folder by matching the value of the field
DROPBOX_PARENT_SHARED_FOLDER_ID to the value of the field
DROPBOX_SHARED_FOLDER_ID in the document that represents the shared folder.
To index documents that represent folders, you must set the configuration parameter
