Dropbox component options

The configuration properties dialog box is the same for the Dropbox eConnector and Dropbox components, although some options can only be configured from the Dropbox eConnector component.

Option Description
Activate Use this combo box to activate the Dropbox component. You can use one of the following alternatives:
  • Select 'Yes' to activate the component.
  • Select 'No' to deactivate the component. In this case the component won't perform any actions during files processing.
  • Enter a custom value or an RRT. If the entered value is equal to FALSE, NO, OFF or 0 (case-insensitive), then all the settings in the configuration window become disabled. Otherwise, the settings are enabled. If this value is evaluated as TRUE, YES, ON or 1 (case-insensitive) at run time, then the component takes part in the workflow. If this value is evaluated as FALSE, NO, OFF, or 0 (case-insensitive) at run time, it does not perform any actions during file processing.

    All other values at run time will be regarded as FALSE.

This option is only enabled for the Dropbox eConnector component.

Pass through Set this option to Yes to pass the original document to subsequent components in the workflow. If this option is set to No, the component won't pass the input documents to the subsequent components in the chain. You can use one of the following alternatives:
  • Select 'Yes' to activate the feature.
  • Select 'No' to deactivate the feature.
  • Enter a custom value or an RRT. If this value is evaluated as TRUE, YES, ON or 1 (case-insensitive) at run time, then the component will pass the input documents to the subsequent components in the chain. If this value is evaluated as FALSE, NO, OFF, or 0 (case-insensitive) at run time, the component will not pass the input documents to the subsequent components in the chain.

    All other values at run time will be regarded as FALSE.

This option is only enabled for the Dropbox eConnector.

Account Enter the Dropbox account alias. An alias can contain any combination of alphabetic or numeric characters. RRTs may also be used to create an alias.
Manage Accounts Click this button to add, remove and configure Dropbox accounts.
Default Folder Enter the directory path within the Dropbox account where the documents will be routed. For example, you could use MyFolder1/SubFolder1.

You can manually enter the path or click the browse button (...) to select the default folder. If the specified directory does not exist, it will be created. Use the slash symbol (/) as the delimiter between folder names, but do not put it at the beginning or end of the Dropbox directory value. Do not use the / as part of a folder name.

The component uses as its root folder the NSi.Autostore folder on the service, that is created in App folder on the service; hence, the path of the root folder is Apps/NSi.Autostore.

Note: The name of the App folder depends on the locale of the Dropbox service account at creation time. For example, for English locale it will be App, for French it is Applications and so forth.
Overwrite existing file Select this check box to overwrite an existing file with the same name as the routed document. If this option is not selected, an error message is generated when a file with the same name as the routed document already exists in the destination folder.
Rename file Select this check box if you want to change the name of the routed document. In the box, enter the schema for renaming the document. If no rename schema is provided, the default rename schema is ~DBR::FileName~_~DBR::Counter~.~DBR::FileExt~.
Replace invalid characters with "_" Select this check box to replace characters that are not allowed in file names with the underscore character.
Create link Set this option to Yes to specify the availability of uploaded files for other users. When this option is set to Yes, Sharable Link RRT to access to uploaded files will be created and made available. You can use one of the following alternatives:
  • Select 'Yes' to activate the feature.
  • Select 'No' to deactivate the feature.
  • Enter a custom value or an RRT. If this value is evaluated as TRUE, YES, ON or 1 (case-insensitive) at run time, then the link will be created and RRT generated. If this value is evaluated as FALSE, NO, OFF, or 0 (case-insensitive) at run time, then this feature will not be activated.

    All other values at run time will be regarded as FALSE.

This option is only enabled for the Dropbox eConnector component.

Separator Enter the type of delimiter to be used between URLs.
