BlokSec can be configured to support passwordless login to Dropbox.

The BlokSec <> Dropbox integration enables authentication via the SAML protocol. Configuration involves a few simple steps on both the BlokSec admin UI and the Dropbox admin console.

BlokSec Admin UI

  1. Sign into BlokSec admin UI as a user with admin privileges for your tenant
  2. On the main dashboard, click the Add Application drop-down and select Create From Template, and select Dropbox
  3. Complete the application details as follows and submit:
    • Name: Dropbox (or your desired application name – we will assume this is called ‘Dropbox’ for the remainder of this article)
    • Entity ID: https://api.bloksec.io
    • NameID Source: Account name
    • Assertion Consumer Service: https://www.dropbox.com/saml_login
    • Name ID Format: EmailAddress (keep default value of EmailAddress)
  4. Click Submit to save the configuration
  5. Click View Cert and then select Copy. Paste the certificate in a text editor of your choice and save the file as BlokSecDropboxCert.pem
  6. Make note of the SSO Uri as it will be required when configuring Dropbox

Dropbox Admin Console

  1. Sign into the Dropbox admin console as a user with admin privileges for your tenant and select Admin console
  2. Navigate to Settings > Authentication > Single sign-on
  3. Complete the identity provider configuration with the following values (adjusting if required to meet your desired behaviour):
    • Single sign-in: Select the appropriate option from the Single sign-on drop down menu
    • Identity provider sign-in URL: Copy / enter the SSO Uri noted in step 6 above
    • X.509 certificatate: Upload the certificate file saved in step 5 above
    • SSo sign-in URL: Select Copy Link
    • Click Save to apply the configuration changes
  4. Send your users the URL from the Copy Link selected above to login passwordless to Dropbox
