You can establish a connection between your application and a service provider for automated cases processing using the Connected apps landing page. For example, you can use Box to store attachments for inbound and outbound automated email processing. The applications listed on the Connected apps landing page use OAuth 2.0 and have a grant type of authorization code.
You can also disconnect applications from the service provider on this landing page. Disconnected apps are not authorized to access the service provider and the applicable use cases will fail. For example, automated email processing of attachments will fail.
If you are manually processing cases, you can connect to a service provider at runtime and do not need to connect using the Connected apps landing page. For example, you can connect to Box when attaching or storing a document to Box.
