Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 3.1. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version of Moodle is probably available here: Dropbox repository.
Please refer to these notes before editing this page.
A Dropbox repository can be enabled by an administrator in Site administration > Modules > Repositories > Manage repositories.
Sign up app keys at dropbox
- Go to https://www.dropbox.com/developers/apps
- Create an app, you must change app status to Production. This feature is only availble for new API developers, but not for Moodle repository users. See MDL-26949
- Copy the app keys
Once enabled by the administrator a Dropbox API Key and Secret will need to be added to the Dropbox settings in order for it to work. This will be the Dropbox available to all users throughout the site (and each will need the correct Dropbox login credentials to access it from their courses). To gather the Dropbox API Key and Secret click the "Dropbox Developers" link on the Dropbox repository settings page. On the next page you'll be prompted to login with your Dropbox username and password and to create a Dropbox app.
Once the App has been created at Dropbox.com you'll have the API Secret and Key available at the bottom of the App page. Entering those on the Dropbox settings page (and clicking Save) back in Moodle will finish the configuration. Dropbox is now available to the entire site.
To access it editing teachers need only "Add..." a new file while editing or creating a resource to see Dropbox as a new option.
