  2. Disclose Box service host names via API

    Open up Box host names via API so that a customer's proxy server can automatically fetch our end points and digest it in to their solution.
    There is a partial list available on our community page but it is not complete and difficult to fetch programatically.

    Thank you once again for the feedback. We have evaluated the feedback but don’t think will have anything meaningful to share in the next couple of quarters.

    Meanwhile, we will continue to keep our ear to the ground for additional feedback, and let you know if anything changes on our side.

  4. 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.

  5. Cleanup and Enhance the file/folder webhook events to cover all the happy paths (new file, new file version, restore previous version)

    As a Box Application Developer I want to be able to receive a unique, webhook events for the following scenarios:

    1. User uploads new file (brand new binary object placed into a Box Folder) - Folder based event (exists: FILE.UPLOADED)
    2. User uploads a new file version - File AND Folder based event (e.g. FILE_NEW.VERSION)
    3. User restores a previous file version - File AND Folder based event (e.g. FILE_RESTORE.VERSION)

    As the owner of an enterprise application that has deep integration in the BOX platform, it is surprising that I have no way to use the Webhooks to monitor files for new versions…

  6. Enhance deprovisioning via API

    We want to use the API to see who’s collaborating with someone who’s been rolled out of the university, as part of deproviosing script. Then we want to look up collaborations of user being deprovisioned and break all collaborations when a user is rolled out

  7. Transfer Ownership Enterprise Event

    Currently, when you delete a user the only way to show that the content from one user to another user in the enterprise events are track two separate events:
    - UPLOAD (Creation of the new folder with the user's naming convention)
    - MOVE (From unknown location/user, to the new folder)

    This mean you needs to track the newly created parent.name and the move event with the item.name. I'm proposing two potential enhancements:

    1) Enhance the MOVE event to show the source user/item details AND target user/item details.
    2) Create a new TRANSFER_OWNERSHIP event so that you can distinguish between a…

  8. Enhance API for group membership search

    Current implementation of user group membership search is very inefficient.
    both
    api.box.com/2.0/groups/GROUPID/memberships
    and
    api.box.com/2.0/users/USER
    ID/memberships

    Right now we have to search for membershipId for given groupId and userId .
    Our customers have thousands of groups and users.

    Ideally we should fetch membership info like
    GET api.box.com/2.0/group_memberships?groupId=<id>&userId=<id>

  10. Allow Search API call to search using wildcards

    if I wanted to get the item ids of all files within a users account, I would have to run the Get Folder Items for all subfolders. If there’s a large folder tree, it would either take to long to iterate through all subfolders or I would run into an API rate limitation. It would be easiest if the Search API call can allow searching using wildcards so it would just take one API call to get a list of all item ids.

  11. Periodic replication of Sandbox environment with Production settings/folder structure

    As we become more complex with usage of Box, we maintain Sandbox environments and are using it to test Governance Policies, integrations, and more.

    Other SaaS providers (e.g., Workday) will push a replication of Configuration Settings (with an option for the customer to not replicate) from the Production to Sandbox environment. This helps keep the two in sync.

    It would also be enormously beneficial if the folder structure and dummy users (not content) could be replicated into the sandbox environment for a better sense of how changes will affect Production.

  13. 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.

  14. Box UI Content Explorer and Content Picker: Support Download ZIP Natively through top-level Element options

    Box's REST API now supports ZIP downloads via the external API in addition to the internal managed web app. It has been a common ask to provide native support for this endpoint in the Box UI Elements - Content Explorer & Content Picker UI Elements through exposing the feature as a top-level option/property when rendering the UI Elements.

  15. Add ability to get a user's collaborations via API

    Since there is a function to get a list of invitations to the group, I want to provide the same to the users.
    Like,
    https://api.box.com/2.0/users/:user_id/collaborations

    We don’t currently plan to provide such an API, however please leave a comment if you have more information about how this would be used. In the interim, you can identify all of a user’s collaborations by requesting items in the user’s root folder (id = 0) and filtering out those where the owned_by user is the current user. This would require an additional API call for each item to get the collaboration id, but if you are only interested in knowing which items re collaborated versus owned by the user, it may be sufficient for your purposes.

  16. Expose user's last activity date and last login date via API

    The Box CLI:GET commandlet is a good tool but if it could grab more basic information, it would be great.. For my company, we would like to see the Last Activity and Last Login of an end user's Box Account. This would help us determine when to de-provision a Box Account after we can verify it hasn't been used in X amount of time.

  17. Provide overwrite switch in CLI to account for existing folder in download location

    Currently BOX CLI download doesn't have overwrite action. If a folder already exists in the location where the new folder is being downloaded, the CLI errors out.

    There should be a over-write switch to the box CLI folder download. It should be something like:

    box folders:download Folder_ID --destination=<location> --over-write=Yes

  18. API to sync folders for users.

    If we could sync folders directly through our internal web app it would cut several steps out of user workflows. I would love to put a sync slider next to the job line so they could sync directly from this screen.

    Specifically, I am talking about leveraging the tools via APIs. So having an API we could leverage to sync folders down for users.

    This request cannot practically be implemented as an API. A client needs to control the state of local items on an endpoint such as a user’s computer, much like the Box Drive or Box Mobile clients do today. The only planned supported means for such synchronization capabilities are the Box Drive and Mobile clients.

  19. copy move or rename API events to include id of both the target and origin locations

    In copy/move/rename events, the API should include the id of both the target and origin locations (from-to)

  20. Populate accessible_by field in get collaborations

    When managing collaborators, the end user needs to see who they have sent invitations to, even if those invitations have not yet been accepted and the other user has not created a box account. The call to get collaborations on a file or folder returns accessible_by: null for pending collaboration requests, essentially hiding the details of the pending requests and making it impossible to display those details to a user in a custom app. This data is definitely available because this feature exists in the main Box.com interface, but has not been exposed to the APIs yet.
