This guide explains how to integrate Assertiv with Dropbox using SAML. When this set up is complete, users will be able to log into Dropbox using their Assertiv account.
To use SAML with Dropbox, you must be on the Dropbox Business plan.
Create Dropbox app in Assertiv
Log into your Assertiv Organization (https://<your-org>.assertiv.com) as an Admin user and select the App Config dashboard tile.
Select the plus () button to create a new App config.
Search for the Dropbox application and select the Dropbox icon.
You will be prompted for some information on the following page.
Dropbox Service Name: This is the name of the application how you would like it to appear in Assertiv. Make this a descriptive name that your users will understand. E.g "Corporate Dropbox"
Signing Certificate: The certificate is used to create a trust between Assertiv and your Dropbox account. For advanced users, if you have created a certificate you wish to use, select it here. Otherwise (or if you are unsure) you can select "-- Generate New Signing Certificate --".
Save the configuration
You should now be shown the Edit Service page with some additional information.
Access the Admin Console menu from Dropbox.
Then select settings
Under Authentication select Single sign-on
Note: This page may look slightly different if you have not set up SAML on your account before.
Using the information from the Assertiv 'Edit Service' page above, fill in the details in the Dropbox configuration. Make sure to update your X.509 certificate to match the one in Assertiv.
The SSO sign-in URL is not used in our configuration. The Identity provider sign-out URL is optional but could be configured with the following where < tenantName> replaces your organisation name:
Save the configuration.
After configuring roles, you can select the Dropbox Icon to log you into Dropbox.
Note: make sure the user has been invited to Dropbox and has accepted the invitation before accessing the application.
For your users to access Dropbox from their Assertiv apps page, you must set up a role, assign users to the role, and give that role permission to access the Dropbox application.
More details on roles can be found in the following articles
