ADSelfService Plus supports Active Directory (AD)-based single sign-on (SSO) for Dropbox and any other SAML-enabled application. Upon enabling SSO for Dropbox in ADSelfService Plus, all users have to do is simply log in to their Windows machines using their AD domain credentials. Once logged in, users can securely access Dropbox in one click without having to enter their username and password again.
ADSelfService Plus supports both Identity Provider (IdP) and Service Provider (SP)-initiated SSO for Dropbox.
IdP-initiated SSO for Dropbox: Users need to log in to the ADSelfService Plus self-service portal first, and then click on the Dropbox icon on the Applications dashboard to access Dropbox.
SP-initiated SSO for Dropbox: Users can access their Dropbox domain via a URL or bookmark. They will automatically be redirected to the ADSelfService Plus portal for login. Once they've signed on, they'll be automatically redirected and logged into the Dropbox portal.
