Add or Edit a Dropbox (Personal) Source

When you have the required privileges, you can add the content of your individual Dropbox account to your Coveo organization (see Required Privileges). Coveo Cloud indexes your Dropbox files to make them searchable only by you, the source creator. Your Dropbox (personal) source starts a refresh every 15 minutes to index Dropbox file changes (additions, modifications, or deletions).

Members with the required privileges could use the View all content option in the Content Browser, edit and rebuild your source, or set your content security to Shared to see your personal Dropbox content (see Browse All the Content of Your Organization Index and Content Security). Also, setting your content security to Shared allows any user (authenticated or not) that can access your search interface to see the source content. It is thus recommended to only create Dropbox (personal) sources for Dropbox that contain no sensitive data.

When you create the source, you authorize the Coveo organization to read your Dropbox account using OAuth 2.0, a protocol that authorizes access without giving your password.
