  1. Setting Folder Autodelete via API

    The automatic deletion date of a folder can be set from the web screen, but it seems that it cannot be set from the API.

    Could you please provide the ability to set this date from the API?

    We have a process that automatically creates thousands of folders using the API, but since it is not possible to set an automatic deletion date, a large number of past folders will continue to remain.

  4. Content Explorer Default View Property

    Box Content Explorer - allow an attribute to set default view to Grid (Thumbnail) view.

    This view option is available on the Embed iframe, but strangely not an option for Content Explorer - means that all of my users need an extra click each time). I cannot trigger a click as Content Explorer is already in an iFrame

  6. (API) Add 'can_change_expiration' to the {file|folder}.permissions

    We are publishing a 3rd-party app for Box.
    A setting has been added to prevent users from changing the expiration date of shared links.
    When this setting is enabled, sending POST of JSON containing 'sharedlink.unsharedat' will return a 400 Bad Request error
    Please add a 'canchangeexpiration' value to the permissions attribute of the file/folder object so that the correct POST requests parameter can be specified.

  7. Allow to Update Description in the Upload Section in File Request via API

    We would like the ability to customize the description field in the Upload Section of the file request via API.
    Currently via API we are only able to update the Header and the Header Description and the
    description under the upload section is only editable via the webapp.

    We are looking to automate the file request via API from certain templates. Certain information will get updated depending on what template we desire which includes the need to update the description under the file upload but currently that is not available via API

  9. Support for passing of special characters (as-is) in query (Box Metadata Query API)

    Per the suggestions ...

    Use of an "=" could be utilized
    Unfortunately, this would break the ability for our search bar to also do loose matches around the "typed search term"
    (e.g. "Broadway &" query will not return "Broadway & Commercial"

    Use of "%" wildcard to replace noted special character
    Unfortunately, the results will then be too varied. Any characters will be up for substitution.
    (e.g. "C&R" query will then also return "car", "candor", corridor", etc.)

    *** Could we confirm if there is an appropriate way for special characters to be passed and recognized as-is?

    The above suggested workarounds would…

  10. API- Developer token

    Hi team, what would be great is to get the possibility when we develop an API to have a token valid for more than 60 minutes.
    Sometimes, to validate the principle of a dev, it's needs more than 1h
    maybe an other solution would be to create a private app with small validation as the purpose is an internal specific need.

  13. API that facilitates multiple folders creation

    At present, we have the capability to create individual folders from salesforce. Is it possible for Box to offer us an API that facilitates multiple folders creation in one transaction?

  14. Can Box provide us an API which allows us to clone a folder along with its sub folders?

    We have a predefined folder structure as a template, and we'd like to create new folders following this template's hierarchy. As Salesforce imposes limits on external system callouts, if the Box team could offer an API for this purpose, it would enable us to accomplish this task

  15. Box Embed - prevent users from navigating outside the assigned folder

    If a user is assigned to the following folders e.g. All Files > Cases > Case 1.

    Currently, Box Embed Breadcrumbs allow users to navigate all the way up to the All Files.

    We want the users to only be able to navigate only within Case 1 folder and not explore outside Case 1. This is useful to prevent users placing content outside Case 1 when embedded inside a case management application e.g. Appian, Salesforce, etc.

  16. Box Legal Hold Export API

    The current Box Legal Hold Exports function becomes difficult to manage at scale. The export process itself generates "batch" zip files that need to be manually downloaded via the user interface. Because the zip files are limited to 5,000 files or aprox 16 GB, I have one user to export who has over 500 "batch" zip files to download. The API does not support directly downloading these batch files. A way to bulk download or programmatically download these batch files is essential when exporting a very large (either in pure storage size or in number of files) user hold.

  18. Allow more than 10 redirect URIs in app configuration

    Our app sits on top of regionally distributed infrastructure, supporting multi-tenancy, and we need to be able to configure more than the maximum of 10 redirect URIs that is currently allowed. It would be nice if we could configure as many as needed.

  19. Support a parameter to remove all external collaborations for all folders and files under the given folder

    Folder trees often needs to be cleansed of external users. It would be easier for admins to have a single call to traverse through a tree to remove external collaborations (external users, and possibly managed users, etc).

    My suggestion is to add this as a parameter to the existing collaborations API call.
