  1. Make the digest header in the Commit Upload endpoint optional

    Currently, Commit Upload endpoint requires passing a Digest header for the sha1 of the entire file.

    Given that the integrity of each file part is already verified, consider making the Digest header in the Commit Upload endpoint optional

  2. Support alternate URL's for end-users who block Box

    Some external clients are blocking *box.com and as a result can't use the app built on Box platform.

  3. List and Grid support in the Content Explorer JavaScript Libraries

    The java script libraries for content explorer do not appear to have an option to include toggle list/grid views which is available in the Box Drive experience.

  4. Option to select a folder_id other than 0 (the user's root folder) within the Move Owned Items API.

    As a large company, we aim to fully automate the deprovisioning of users using Box Platform.

    We would like an option within the Move Owned Items API (https://developer.box.com/v2.0/reference#move-folder-into-another-users-folder) to select a destination location other than 0 (all files).

    The goal would be to automate this process and allow folders and files to be moved within an existing folder rather than at the root level.

    We do not plan to suppress these updates. However, we will reconsider if we get additional feedback from other users.

  6. Adapt Annotations to achieve Accessibility guidelines

    Box View does not conformance with W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, version 2.0 (WCAG 2.0) at conformance levels A and AA - specifically, annotations can only be viewed around mouseover. This is a blocker for us as we work with public universities who have to meet those guidelines.

    This is not planned.

    We don’t see enough customer demand for this yet, and supporting every additional content type takes a significant amount of engineering time and effort.

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. Add Managed Domains list to API Endpoint

    We would like to be able to make an API call to retrieve the list of managed domains for or Enterprise. We can only do this from the Admin Console today.

  12. Enable API apps for select users

    Right now, we can disable published APIs for all users, or enable them - we'd like the ability to restrictively enable.

  13. Expose Box Server Time for setting JWT exp claim within expected values

    Currently, there are a few different places that developers can use to sync the time of their requests which can lead to some confusion/issues with properly setting the exp claim when generating a JWT assertion.

    For example, pool.ntp.org offers up a time that's ~25 seconds ahead of epochconverter.com (where support currently suggests that folks sync their time from).

    Exposing the "current timestamp" somehow, or syncing up with a framework that allows users to be in sync with Box time will allow for fewer questions/issues with the JWT claims process.

  14. Add a Webhooks v2 event trigger for restoring a file version

    If a file version is restored (via the webapp or API), there is no associated event trigger that captures this action. If an admin is monitoring a file for changes, no webhook is triggered for this action.

    This is not currently planned. We will consider it with additional use cases and customer demand.

    We don’t offer an API endpoint for these types of queries today, so it’s not possible to add.

    When you create a user that already exists, you get a 409 error code returned – user already exists. Is this sufficient?

  16. Bulk assign metadata attributes to multiple folders/files at one time

    We were a previous heavy user of tags and our users enjoyed the ability to assign tags to multiple files at once in the old UI.

    Because they have tens of thousands of users deployed, they often have the same attribute needed to be assigned to many files.

    We are evaluatig options to assign metadata values to multiple files and/or folders in a user friendly manner. We currently offer the ability to define a Metadata Cascade Policy on a folder, which will assign a metadata template and, optionally, default metadata field values to all files within that folder structure. More information is available https://community.box.com/t5/Organizing-and-Tracking-Content/Cascading-metadata-templates-in-folders/ta-p/67801

    If this is insufficient to satisfy your use case, leave us a comment with the problem you are trying to solve and what would help you to address it.

  17. Folder Level App Integration in Developer Console

    Is there any plan to allow developers to give folder access to Web App integrations without having to request a special permission from Box?

    In the current process, Developers can enable the context menu for folders to present integration features, but to do so they must contact Box first. "Send a request to Box for pre-approval to build a folder-level integration."

    https://docs.box.com/docs/box-web-application-integrations#section-step-4-select-an-integration-from-the-more-actions-dropdown

    We would like the ability to add folder level integrations via the Developer Console without having to contact Box Support.

  18. 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.

  19. Added an event trigger for FILE.RENAME and FOLDER.RENAME for V2 webhooks

    This events would trigger v2 webhooks when an item is renamed.

  20. Pass Basic Auth (Authorization Header) to Client Callback URL & Preliminary Callback URL when Both are Present

    Using an API-based web app integration, from the "More" menu in the web app, if developer requires basic auth to complete the request, authorization header is only passed to the Preliminary Callback URL and never the Client Callback URL - even if Client Callback is the only URL present.

    Expected Behavior:
    Allowing the developer to choose whether basic auth is required would imply that we would always pass the Authorization header with our requests so they can validate.
