Silently provision Dropbox Business

This table describes the typical Dropbox Business silent provisioning workflow.

Activity Description
Silent Provisioning is enabled

The Okta Administrator selects Silent Provisioning when they add the Dropbox Business app to Okta. When silent provisioning is enabled, users are silently provisioned to Dropbox Business and welcome emails aren't sent to new Okta provisioned users. To activate their accounts, new users can visit or they can click the Dropbox Business app icon on the Okta End-User Dashboard.

Status Verification

Existing personal Basic or Pro Dropbox Business users on the corporate domain are identified. Users identification is enabled on the Dropbox Business Admin Dashboard. See Domain verification and invite enforcement and Domain insights and account capture.

Account Activation After status verification, users who don't currently exist in Dropbox Business are directed to to sign on and activate their accounts. Because these users aren't already on Dropbox Business and haven't been sent activation invitations by email, you need to provide a sign-on URL or instruct them to click the Dropbox Business application on the Okta End-User Dashboard.
