Component family

Cloud/Dropbox

 

Function

This component creates the connection to a given Dropbox account.

Purpose

The tDropboxConnection component creates a Dropbox connection that the other Dropbox components can reuse.

Basic settings

Access token

Enter the access token required by the Dropbox account you need to connect to. This access token allows the Studio to make Dropbox API calls for that Dropbox account.

Note that a Dropbox App should have been created under that account before generating the access token. For further information about a Dropbox access token, see https://www.dropbox.com/developers/blog/94/generate-an-access-token-for-your-own-account.

 

Use HTTP proxy

If you are using a proxy, select this check box and enter the host and port information of that proxy in the corresponding fields that are displayed.

Advanced settings

tStatCatcher Statistics

Select this check box to collect log data at the component level.

Global Variables

ERROR_MESSAGE: the error message generated by the component when an error occurs. This is an After variable and it returns a string. This variable functions only if the Die on error check box is cleared, if the component has this check box.

A Flow variable functions during the execution of a component while an After variable functions after the execution of the component.

To fill up a field or expression with a variable, press Ctrl + Space to access the variable list and choose the variable to use from it.

For further information about variables, see Talend Studio User Guide.

Usage

This component is used standalone as a Subjob to create the Dropbox connection to be used. In a Job design, it is often connected to the other Dropbox components using the Trigger links such as On Subjob Ok link.
