- DfB API-based Application activity.
- Sharing activity both within and outside the team.
- Security metrics, including detailed user and path tracking.

Support for this content

This app is not officially supported by Splunk Support. If you have a current Splunk Enterprise Support entitlement, Splunk will provide best-effort support for cases involving this app directly, but such cases will not be subject to the Splunk Enterprise Support SLA.

Demo Video

A quick 5:32 minute video detailing some use cases for this app can be found here.

Getting Started

This app is designed to provide comprehensive data collection and field extraction for Dropbox for Business and a set of dashboards covering sharing, device, application, and security activity. The data collection includes the following coverage from the DfB REST API:

  • Login activity.
  • Membership activity (i.e. requests/additions/removals).
  • Device activity.
  • DfB API-based Application activity.
  • Sharing activity both within and outside the team.
  • Security metrics, including detailed user and path tracking.

In addition, this App is CIM-compliant: it leverages both the Authentication and Change Analysis Data Models.

Prerequisites

  • An OAuth 2.0 Access Token
  • A Dropbox for Business admin account

Note: the Dropbox for Business admin account is used to authorize the Splunk App for Dropbox for Business and generate the OAuthe 2.0 access token. The Dropbox for Business admin account credentials are not stored on the Splunk instance.

Setup

  1. Download the app here.
  2. From the Splunk Web home screen, click the gear icon next to Apps.
  3. Click Install app from file.
  4. Locate the downloaded file and click Upload.
  5. If Splunk Enterprise prompts you to restart, do so.
  6. During the first launch of the Splunk App for Dropbox for Business, a configuration screen will appear to configure your Dropbox OAuth Access Token.

Troubleshooting

  • This App includes a scheduled Alert called "DfB Modular Input Errors" which should be used first to check for any issues with the REST Modular Input.
  • This app uses 2 lookup file generators that will run when Splunk starts up and on a scheduled basis. These lookup file generators create lookups for Active Users and File/Folder Paths. To manually run these lookup generators, navigate to the "Misc" menu -> "Lookup Generators" -> click the appropriate link.
