  2. 【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…

  3. 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. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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)

  8. 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.

  9. Enable remote uploads with Box API

    Allow remote uploads with our upload API. OneDrive and Dropbox allow this method.

    Dropbox: https://www.dropbox.com/developers-v1/core/docs#save-url
    OneDrive: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/OneDrive/developer/rest-api/api/driveitem_upload_url

    We would like to upload files from external services directly and do not want to download the file to the client. Being able to upload files directly from external services will avoid deduplication of files.

  13. Improve experience of GETting all users for large enterprises

    Large enterprises will often run nightly jobs to get a list of all users to sync w/ their own AD or for other purposes.

    It would be nice to be able to get the entire population via a single API call (say, return a link to a csv file or a .zip of several csv files) or at least increase the limit. For customers with >50k users, it can be painful to make many API calls to get the whole list of users.

    We do not currently plan to provide all users via a single API request. For nightly synchronization of large user populations such such as the one described in this request, a more appropriate method would be to request relevant user and group events for that day from the enterprise events API and apply the changes there. When using this strategy, a full synchronization should only be required initially and in the case of some corruption or drift between the two systems.

  14. 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.

  17. Alternative Endpoints for API calls

    In some regions, using the default endpoint box.com doesn't work or works really slowly. Therefore, box offers different endpoints for different regions. For China, this is (Box Alternate Domains redacted for privacy)
    That's great!

    However, those endpoints can only be used within the box web app.
    The only available box API to download a file is https://api.box.com/2.0/files/:file_id/content/ respectively https://api.box.com/2.0/zip_downloads/ to download multiple files as a zip, which generates a download URL starting with dl.boxcloud.com.
    As a result, the generated download URL delivers very slow downloads or does not work at all in some regions of the world.

    Therefore, I request…

  19. 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.
