The Dropbox integration detects a variety of data loss prevention, account misconfiguration, and user security risks in an integrated Dropbox account that could leave you and your organization vulnerable.

​​ Integration prerequisites

  • A Dropbox Business plan (Standard, Advanced, Enterprise, or Education)
  • Access to a Dropbox Business account with Team admin permissions

​​ Integration permissions

For the Dropbox integration to function, Cloudflare CASB requires the following Dropbox permissions via an OAuth 2.0 app:

  • team_data.member
  • team_data.governance.write
  • sessions.list

These permissions follow the principle of least privilege to ensure that only the minimum required access is granted. To learn more about each permission, refer to the Dropbox API Permissions documentation.

​​ Security findings

The Dropbox integration currently scans for the following findings, or security risks. Findings are grouped by category and then ordered by severity level.
