How to Setup Dropbox Integration in Odoo 16

Technical Odoo 16

Dropbox is a popular cloud storage platform that offers users a secure and convenient solution for storing, organizing, and accessing their files from anywhere. With Dropbox, users can upload various file types, such as documents, images, videos, and more, and store them securely in the cloud. This eliminates the need for physical storage devices and allows users to access their files seamlessly from multiple devices.

In this blog, we can discuss the Dropbox Integration application(technical name-dropbox_integration) available in the Odoo App Store. The Dropbox integration module helps you to Upload and Download files in your Dropbox account within odoo itself. This application is created using The dropbox Python package, which is an official software development kit (SDK) provided by Dropbox for integrating Python applications with the Dropbox API. It simplifies the process of interacting with Dropbox services, such as file storage, sharing, and syncing, by providing convenient methods and abstractions.

Steps to setup Dropbox integration

Login to your Dropbox account at https://www.dropbox.com/developers and create an app. This will provide you with API credentials to access Dropbox from Odoo.

Once your app is created, note down the App Key and App Secret. You can also find all your created apps in the App Console menu. On the app settings page, add the Redirect URIs for OAuth 2.0 as your server address. This URI will be used to redirect users after the successful authentication process.
