  1. COPY / MOVE API events to include origin file's ID, name and location

    Currently there is no way to know which file was copied/moved in Box Events API. It is only possible to see the destination file name and location, and only if the file was copied/moved within one Box instance. This presents a major challenge for customers who want to build custom programs that monitor copy/move activity both inside and outside their Box instances.

  2. Allow the "User Activity" report to be run for a folder and all sub-folders & content within that folder

    Today, the admin may select to run the "User Activity" report for a particular folder. When run for a particular folder, the report will only filter on the contents of the selected folder, and not the contents of subfolders within. Request that the report includes the folder and all sub-folders & contents within that folder, removing the need to run the report at the enterprise level and filtering to a particular folder path from there.

  3. Available get to 'My Collections' other than favorites via API

    In 3rd-party app, My Collection is a very good idea as a way to provide quick access to users.
    But, it can only take favorites.
    Please let me get 'My Collections' other than favorites.

    https://developer.box.com/reference/get-collections/
    Currently, only the favorites collection is supported.

  4. Provide an Endpoint to Manage Public/Private Key Pair

    To retire and generate a new JWT application's public/private key pair, manual intervention is needed by both the Developer Application owner and the Box Admin. It is very common to require periodic rotation of RSA keys and is often required by internal security standards.

  5. Avatar API Driven Capability

    Avatar —

    Customer would love to have the API Driven Capability to Upload to the user’s Avatar, and might require additional API parameters like “center point” to ensure a portrait is centered.

    Customer stores Avatar/Portraits of their people in centralized personnel databases, which is the key store for that data. Their users engage with it there for uniformity. Also API Driven would allow them to build Avatar Processes into their Native Mobile Apps that also impact their Box Experience in a positive manner.

    They already have several workflows that output Avatar to outside systems upon change internally.

  7. Retain modified_by field on GET calls on content for deleted users

    Right now, when using the API to make GET calls on content, the 'modifiedby' field will be NULL if the user that made the modification is deleted. For reporting purposes, it would be ideal if this information is retained. The 'createdby' field is retained, so it seems strange that modified_by results in a NULL result

  8. I want to use the box API to add and delete tags

    I want to use the box API to add and delete tags,but the[https://developer.box.com/reference/put-files-id/#param-tags]
    tags body parameter:
    To add or remove a tag, retrieve the item's current tags, modify them, and then update this field.
    In this way, current tags will be covered. If I want to add or delete tag I have to know the current tags . I want to know if there are other endpoints that can add tags directly without knowing the current tags.

  9. Documents within Folders

    It would be helpful to have the ability to highlight all documents in a folder (the file names) and paste into Excel to evaluate. If this is already possible please send me instructions jill.hall@lennar.com

  11. Ability for admins to see tenant wide API call trend insight dashboard in Admin or Dev Console

    Platform Activity report could be used to find out daily API calls for each and every single registered apps. But it requires Excel to summarize to grasp overall tenant-wide API call trends.

    Since this is hard for the admins to track if API calls exceed allowed number of calls or not, it would be ideal for admins to see tenant-wide API call trend insight dashboard from Admin or Dev Console.

  12. Company Intranet Functionality

    Would be great if Box had a company intranet functionality similar to platforms like Simppler, Igloo, Claromentis, Jostle, etc... Many of them integrate with Box, but one stop shopping is always preferred. A digital workplace is so important now that so many are working remotely. Bringing all of our apps under one roof (e.g., Box, Salesforce, Teams, Zoom, Yammer...), giving employees a portal/hub to go every morning to improve communication, lighten the inbox, providing a place to hold not only our knowledge but our policies, forms, news, process management for things like onboarding new hires, training staff, etc...

    A server side authentication token that is long lived and provides access to all endpoints, not just read and write like JWT auth. I have posted a support ticket here describing my needs: https://support.box.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/1500000258202-Server-Side-Authentication-Scopes

  14. Ability to update files by pathname

    Instead of having to provide a fileId to perform an action on any given file, it would be nice to be able to pass a pathname as an alternative option

    Be able to tag files from iOS devices within the Box app. This will be helpful for people on the go who want to be able to do tasks from their iPhone or iPad.

  16. Box Content Explorer: Resize Column Widths

    Box Content Explorer currently supports dynamically sized columns with the browser window width, but user-resizable columns are needed to accommodate large items' names.

  17. Service Accounts should be rate limited differently than user accounts

    Currently, when you use a service account to access Box API's, in order to get access to content you need to use the As-User header "impersonate" users in order to access the files that are owned by then.

    So if you are doing something like using a service account to crawl through all the files in a folder in box, you would need to use the As-User header in order to impersonate a user who owns/has access to each file while doing it.

    But there is a huge problem here is that the rate limiting is done using the As-User…

  18. We need Box enablement to all the App user to "see" the refreshes of documents periodically

    We want app user functionality to crawl a given Box folder and refresh every 24 hrs so we always have the latest document ingested into Watson Discovery.

  19. Improve wording on Box Edit confirmation prompt

    Improve wording on Box Edit confirmation prompt

    When a file is opened with Box Edit from UI elements, we display a confirmation prompt that asks user to proceed or not (this is UI elements only and not displayed when opening file from webapp). Currently, the prompt lets you choose approve/reject, but we want this text changed to OK/cancel (just like other Windows apps).
