Dropbox API

Dropbox lets you store your files online, sync them to all your devices, and share them easily. Get started for free, then upgrade for more space and security features.

Use the Dropbox Connector

Add the dropbox connector on your Zenaton dashboard,
enter the credentials and authorize Zenaton to call the dropbox API from your workflows.
Then add code snippet and URL path to your workflow.

const { workflow } = require("zenaton");

module.exports = workflow("MyWorkflow", function* () {
const dropbox = this.connector(
'dropbox', 'your-connector-id-from-zenaton-dashboard');

const response = yield dropbox.get('path_to_API');
yield dropbox.post('path_to_API', {param1: '...'});
});

The Zenaton Engine

We handle the complexity of orchestrating Dropbox API calls and related logic in your code.

Out of the Box API Call

Add the connector to your Zenaton workflow and we manage the authentication, oauth1 and oauth2 flow including token refreshing.

Automatic Retries & Alerting

If your Dropbox API call fails, it can automatically be retried and you will receive an alert with error details.

Monitoring and Troubleshooting

View the Zenaton dashboard for execution history, scheduled tasks, errors and logs or retry failed Dropbox API calls.

Integrate Dropbox into your application logic

The Zenaton connector is a pre-configured task for calling the Dropbox API inside your workflow with one line of code. Build custom integration logic by adding a workflow directly into your application using the functions in the Zenaton SDK.

// The Zenaton engine orchestrates dropbox API calls and related logic via the Zenaton agent. Every step is executed at the right moment on your servers and monitored on Zenaton dashboard.
const { workflow } = require("zenaton");
// dropbox authentification on Zenaton
module.exports = workflow("ParallelWorkflow", function* () {
  const dropbox = this.connector(
    'dropbox',
    'your-connector-id-from-zenaton-dashboard'
  );
// execute parallel tasks handled automatically by the Zenaton engine 
  const [a, b] = yield this.run.task(["TaskA"],["TaskB"]);
  if (a > b) {
    const response = yield dropbox.get('path_to_API');
  } else {
    yield this.run.task('TaskD');
  }
});

const { workflow } = require("zenaton");
// dropbox authentification on Zenaton
module.exports = workflow("AsynchronousWorkflow", function* () {
  const dropbox = this.connector(

  this.run.task('TaskA');
  this.dropbox.post('path_to_API');
  yield run.task('TaskB');
  yield this.run.task('TaskD');
});
// Tasks can be automatically (or manually) retried and executions are displayed in real-time on the Zenaton dashboard.
const { workflow, duration } = require("zenaton");

// dropbox authentification on Zenaton
module.exports = workflow("WaitWorkflow", function* () {
  const dropbox = this.connector(

    const event = yield this.wait.event("MyEvent").for(duration.hours(24));
    if (event) {
      // If event has been triggered within 24 hours
      yield this.run.task('TaskA');
