ICF 1.5.20.20

Dropbox connector

Before you start

  1. Create a Dropbox developer account.

  2. Create a new application with full Dropbox access. Add the required read and write permissions for team, member, and group. Remember to save the app key and app secret.

  3. Get a refresh token.

Install the Dropbox connector

You can download any connector from Backstage, but some come bundled with Identity Cloud, IDM, or RCS by default. When using a bundled connector, you can skip installing it and move directly to configuration.

No

No

Download the connector .jar file from Backstage.

  • If you are running the connector locally, place it in the /path/to/openidm/connectors directory, for example:

    mv ~/Downloads/dropbox-connector-1.5.20.18.jar /path/to/openidm/connectors/
  • If you are using a remote connector server (RCS), place it in the /path/to/openicf/connectors directory on the RCS.

Configure the Dropbox connector

Create a connector configuration using the IDM admin UI:

  1. From the navigation bar, click Configure > Connectors.

  2. On the Connectors page, click New Connector.

  3. On the New Connector page, type a Connector Name.

  4. From the Connector Type drop-down list, select Dropbox Connector - 1.5.20.18.

  5. Complete the Base Connector Details.

    For a list of all configuration properties, refer to Dropbox Connector Configuration
  6. Click Save.

When your connector is configured correctly, the connector displays as Active in the admin UI.

Refer to this procedure to create a connector configuration over REST.

Base Connector Details
  • Dropbox Endpoint : https://api.dropboxapi.com/2

  • Use Basic Auth For OAuth Token Neg : true | false

  • Max connections: max size of the http connection pool used. Defaults to 10.

  • Connection Timeout (seconds): Defines a timeout for the underlying http connection in seconds. Defaults to 30.

Authentication
  • Token Endpoint: https://api.dropboxapi.com/oauth2/token

  • Client ID: Your Client ID.

  • Client Secret: Your Client Secret.

  • Refresh Token: Your Refresh Token.

If configuring the connector over REST or through the filesystem, specify the connection details to the Dropbox resource provider in the configurationProperties for the connector. If you are using OAuth for your connection, the minimum required properties are serviceUri, tokenEndpoint, refreshToken, clientId, and clientSecret.

Sample Configuration
{
    "configurationProperties" : {
        "tokenExpiration" : null,
        "accessToken" : null,
        "serviceUri" : "https://api.dropboxapi.com/2",

        "tokenEndpoint" : "https://api.dropboxapi.com/oauth2/token",
        "clientId" : "k3..........5g",
        "clientSecret" : "xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx",
        "refreshToken" : "xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx",
        "authToken" : null,
        "acceptSelfSignedCertificates" : false,
        "disableHostNameVerifier" : false,

OpenICF Interfaces Implemented by the Dropbox Connector

The Dropbox Connector implements the following OpenICF interfaces. For additional details, see ICF interfaces:

Create

Creates an object and its uid.

Delete

Deletes an object, referenced by its uid.

Schema

Describes the object types, operations, and options that the connector supports.

Script on Connector

Enables an application to run a script in the context of the connector.

Any script that runs on the connector has the following characteristics:

  • The script runs in the same execution environment as the connector and has access to all the classes to which the connector has access.

  • The script has access to a connector variable that is equivalent to an initialized instance of the connector. At a minimum, the script can access the connector configuration.

  • The script has access to any script arguments passed in by the application.

Search

Searches the target resource for all objects that match the specified object class and filter.

Test

Tests the connector configuration.

Testing a configuration checks all elements of the environment that are referred to by the configuration are available. For example, the connector might make a physical connection to a host that is specified in the configuration to verify that it exists and that the credentials that are specified in the configuration are valid.

This operation might need to connect to a resource, and, as such, might take some time. Do not invoke this operation too often, such as before every provisioning operation. The test operation is not intended to check that the connector is alive (that is, that its physical connection to the resource has not timed out).

You can invoke the test operation before a connector configuration has been validated.

Update

Updates (modifies or replaces) objects on a target resource.
