About DCFG

Build Status Coverage Status

DCFG allows syncing between Google Apps and Dropbox Business. DCFG automates provisioning and deprovisioning of both users and groups. DCFG reads users and groups on Google Apps, then create/update/delete Dropbox accounts and groups.

Feature

user-provision

Invite users to Dropbox Business team who are in Google Apps but NOT in Dropbox. Users are identified by primary email address.

user-deprovision

Delete users from Dropbox Business team who are NOT in Google Apps but in Dropbox. Users are identified by primary email address.

group-provision

Create/update Dropbox Groups by refering Google Group. Google Group can have nested groups, DCFG expands all nested group, then add all members to Dropbox Group. In some usecase, Google Groups have tons of unmanaged groups. Most IT admins don't want to sync all group into Dropbox. DCFG requires white list of Google Groups (group emali address).

example

Sample structure of Google Groups.

japan@example.com (Name: Japan)
  |
  +- taro@example.com (USER)
  +- tokyo@example.com (GROUP)
  
tokyo@example.com (Name: Tokyo)
  |
  +- kevin@example.com (USER)

If IT admin add japan@example.com to the white list, DCFG creates Dropbox Group named "Japan". And the group has both taro@example.com and kevin@example.com.
