  2. display request for Try this API

    In the API reference Try this API displays Response Headers and Response Body. It would be nice if it also displayed the request URL and maybe request headers and body depending on HTTP type.

    Cheers...

  3. 【can_view_path】How the path looks when an item is moved to the trash

    When using canviewpath, the collaborator sees a folder on the screen with no contents that should have been moved to the trash.
    This has to do with the collaboration ID.

    This is because even if you delete an item, the collaboration ID remains and is needed to restore the item.

    Although the actual contents cannot be accessed, the fact that the folder can be accessed and the folder name can be confirmed is considered a serious incident by companies with strict security requirements, and an early response is required.
    Is it possible to change the functionality on a…

  4. Unable to see external items via API

    Currently the API works differently than the UI. in the UI a user can see files/folders that were shared with them from an external (to the org) account, however, when trying to query for the visible items via the API these do not show.
    In addition - if you try to get the details of specific items shared by an external user you get an error when using the API, which is unfortunate since this causes 2 classes of behavior that are inconsistent between the UI and the API.

  5. Would like the ability to set the Data Residency Zone via REST API and SDK

    It would be very beneficial for my organization if we could get a handle to the Data Residency Zone via REST API and Java SDK. We are currently incorporating all the "Freemium" accounts that were created before we set the domains that weren't allowed to create as a free user. It would be nice to be able to set their data zone programmatically based on information we gather from our Active Directory as we incorporate them.

  6. file preview, upload and download api

    Right now we are missing information about the number of times a file has been downloaded or previewed using the API endpoint 'get file information' https://developer.box.com/reference/get-files-id/
    We can only access this info through the admin console reports. It would be useful to access this info directly using the API

  8. 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.

  9. Addition an event trigger for TASK.CREATE, COMPLETE, ACCEPT and REJECT for V2 webhooks

    V2 Webhook does not have a Webhook for Task operations.
    This makes it difficult to notify the next application of the completion of a task.

    Please add webhooks for Task created, completed, accepted, and rejected.

  10. 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

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. Documents within Folders

  14. 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...

  17. 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.

  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. 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.
