It appears that this connector supports the OAuth flow for users, but not applications.  Is that correct? https://www.dropbox.com/developers/reference/auth-types

Hi Mark,

What do you mean by OAuth flow for users but not applications? OAuth is for authenticating users. If you authenticate your app then you need to register app as a user.

May I know your use case please?

Thanks and Regards,

Hi Mark, I don't know if you still need this connector, but I just tested it, and it allows App Authentication. You need to go to the Configuration Tab and inform your Key and App Secret.

Roger that, I'll give it a shot.  I ended up creating it myself and then the client moved to OneDrive so it wasn't even used.  I'll bookmark this the next time I do another Dropbox integration.  Thanks for following up and letting me know.
