Component family

Cloud/Dropbox

 

Basic settings

Use existing connection

Select this check box and in the Component List click the relevant connection component to reuse the connection details you already defined.

 

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.

 

Path

Enter the path on Dropbox pointing to the file you need to download.

Note that the path string should start with a slash (/). It is the root folder of the Dropbox App for which you are using the current access token.

 

Save as file

Select this check box to display the File field and browse to, or enter the local directory where you want to store the downloaded file. The existing file, if any, is replaced.

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 can be used alone or along with other components via the Iterate link or a trigger link such as On Subjob OK.
