How can I use Active Directory to manage Dropbox for Business members?
The new Dropbox for Business API helps IT administrators create new integrations and new partnerships with great third-party technologies like eDiscovery, Data Loss Prevention (DLP), Security Information & Event Management (SIEM), and more. Team admins can use the API to build a suite of security and compliance tools to manage analytics, content safety, and on-premises backups, and even build custom apps.
Dropbox for Business administrators can automate the creation and removal of accounts from an existing Active Directory system. Once integrated, you can use Active Directory to manage membership. Provisioning is fast, easy, and free, thanks to our integration partners.
To integrate with Active Directory, you'll need:
- To be the team admin of a Dropbox for Business account
- Either a new or existing account with one of our identity management partners, or an integration you've implemented using the Dropbox for Business API
You can contact our identity management partners to find out more about their special Dropbox plans:
Dropbox Active Directory integration provides control over account provisioning and supports single sign-on (SSO). For more questions regarding integration, please contact the Dropbox sales team or technical support at Okta or OneLogin.
