Synchronize your Sharepoint Files to Dropbox

The sample project featured in this article has preconfigured ports for downloading files from your Sharepoint site and storing them in your Dropbox account.

The ports are configured to automatically move files from one port to the next until the files are stored in Dropbox. By default the SharePoint port will download files from the Documents page.

The map port is preconfigured to operate automatically. You can schedule the application to poll SharePoint for new files whenever you want the job to run from the SharePoint port settings page, or you can manually process files using the Receive button from the Receive tab of the SharePoint port.

In order to configure the example, please follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Ports tab and click the Import Settings button. In the dialog that appears, choose the file to import the project's settings and port configurations.
  2. After you have imported the sample, start by selecting the SharePoint port and navigating to the Settings tab.
  3. To establish a connection to your SharePoint site, you need to set the URL, User and Password properties. The URL is the SharePoint site URL, while the User and Password are the credentials you use to log into SharePoint.
  4. You will also need to establish a connection to your Dropbox account by clicking the Connect button. A new browser tab will be opened that will prompt you to log into a Dropbox account. Log into your account, then allow RSSBus Connect to access the data in your Dropbox. After giving the permission, the tab will close and the application is now connected to Dropbox.
  5. After setting up both the SharePoint and Dropbox ports, you can execute the sample. To do so, open the SharePoint port, navigate to the Receive tab and click the Receive button.
