Add or Edit a Dropbox (Personal) Source

Members of the Administrators and Content Managers built-in groups can add the content of an individual Dropbox account to a Coveo Cloud organization. Coveo Cloud indexes your Dropbox files to make them searchable only by the source creator. A Dropbox (personal) source starts a refresh every hour to index Dropbox file changes (additions, modifications, or deletions).

Administration Console users with the required privileges could use the View all content option in the Content Browser to see personal Dropbox content. They could also set the source Content Security parameter to Everyone, which would allow any user (authenticated or not) to see the source content through a Coveo-powered search interface. We therefore recommend to avoid indexing Dropbox instances that contain 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.
