Just wondering if anybody has been able to deploy this to their users without having to manually input admin credentials. We're having difficulty figuring out a method getting it out without manual intervention.

Hello

Have a look at this thread:

https://www.jamf.com/jamf-nation/discussions/11503/install-latest-dropbox-using-their-newer-installer-style-app

That solved the problem for me in combination with a script downloadning the latest version of Dropbox, closing running processes and then starting the process up again after installing and applying the chmod string from the above link.

@holger.netterby What is your script for downloading the latest version of Dropbox?

Full installer DMG from the official source:
https://clientupdates.dropboxstatic.com/dbx-releng/client/Dropbox%2085.4.155.dmg

When a new version comes out, updating the URL version number should point you to the latest file.

Verify this is an official source:

Write a script to download and install it locally or upload to JAMF packages as is and create a policy. Worked fine for me
