Import Data from Dropbox

Dropbox is a platform for sharing and storing files in a secure manner.  See for more information.  If you have a Dropbox account and have files stored there which you would like to analyze in LityxIQ, it is simple to import them and begin working with the data.

The first step to import data from Dropbox, as with any external connection, is to create the data connection in LityxIQ.  See for more information on creating and managing external data connections.  Connecting to Dropbox will require you to authorize LityxIQ to connect to your Dropbox account.  

If you haven't already, click the "Begin Authorization with Dropbox" and follow the on-screen instructions to get your authorization code and copy/paste it into the box.  Then Test the connection and click Save when done.

Then, follow instructions to create a new Raw Dataset and define its settings found here:  Ensure you select the Dropbox Connection you created above in the Location dropdown box.  You can then browse for the file you want to import by clicking the Filename box and enter any other settings required for that file.
