  1. Specify proxy information in BoxDeveloperEditionAPIConnection

    In the Box Java SDK, the BoxDeveloperEditionAPIConnection methods do not support specifying proxy information like the BoxAPIConnection methods do.

    This makes them impossible to use in a corporate environment where proxy information must be set.

    It would be nice if the SDK could be updated to support that so we do not have to fork the SDK and add in the logic ourselves.

    As of 2016, the Box File Picker does not allow the user to search within their account, which is a bad user experience.

  3. Allow documents (Word, PowerPoint, txt) to be downloaded as PDF

    Documents can only be downloaded via the Box Content API in their original format. It's sometimes desired to download a file directly in PDF, which reduces the size of the file.

  5. Add API for CORS Domains

    With the introduction of the UI Elements, managing CORS domains has been really important for developers who create third party apps that are then used across many domains owned by their customers. This gets unwieldy to manage manually.

  11. Add all webhooks v2 event triggers to the Java SDK

    It's currently unclear whether all event triggers listed in developer docs are supported, as the Java SDK does not specifically list them: https://github.com/box/box-java-sdk/blob/master/src/main/java/com/box/sdk/BoxWebHook.java#L584

  14. Add offline functionality to iOS SDK

    Offline functionality is already available through the Box for iOS app but it's built on the app level.

    Developers are interested in using the same logic used by Box instead of writing their own.

    Our customers tend to have different requirements for an offline feature. We’ll monitor demand and re-evaluate.

  15. Allow watermarking to reveal External ID, as opposed to randomly generated App User Email

    This would connect the viewer to a legal obligation through the document experience.

  16. Picker: Allow to be configured for files only or folders only

    Connections uses picker in different contexts.

    For files: allow only file selection, but still allow nav down folder tree. Remove the 'add file' button.

    For folders: Allow only folder selection, do not show files. Do not show add files or all files button.

  18. The ability to pass unique request ID to each service request to assist with debugging

    We want to pass a unique request ID to Box so we can easily track and debug any requests that fail within their application.

  20. You cannot get trashed versions via the API or deleted trashed versions

    While you can GET and permanently delete FILES & FOLDERS via the API by interacting with TRASH, you cannot do so for FILE VERSIONS, e.g. GET/DELETE
    https://api.box.com/2.0/files/<fileID>/versions/<versionID>/trash
