    • If you choose Optional, your team can sign in to Dropbox using SSO or their Dropbox password.

  • Copy “ISSUER URL (Entity ID)” from PureAUTH and pest it into “Identity provider sign-in URL“.
  • Copy “SAML LOGOUT LOGIN URL” from PureAUTH and pest it into “Identity provider sign-out URL (optional)“.

  • Click Upload certificate to upload the X.509 certificate .pem file you generated.
  • Click Apply changes.
  • Notify your team
    • If you chose to require single-sign on, Dropbox will notify team members by email.
    • If you made single-sign on optional, you’ll need to notify the team yourself.

How to find your team’s custom SSO sign-in URL

If team members have already signed in to the PureAUTH, they can go directly to their Dropbox account using the custom link. To find your team’s custom SSO sign-in URL:

  • Sign in to Dropbox using your admin credentials.
