  1. Add "Box DICOM Import" functions to the BoxCLI

    One thing that would be handy is to be able to upload a folder (of dicom files) and process the contents with the "Box DICOM Import" functionality using the BoxCLI.

    Maybe something like: (add a flag to current box:folders:upload command)

    "box folders:upload /root/test_folder --parent-folder=%ID% --dicom-import"

    That would be Nice!

  3. Add support for bulkified retrieval of box folder ids

    toolkit.getFolderIdByRecordId needs to be bulkified. Otherwise the method is very vulnerable to Salesforce governor limits.

  4. Open Box Notes API for logging

    The idea here is to use a box note as a log which could be updated both by humans and an automated api.

    My use case for the api would basically be "append a line" to the box note.

  6. Add folder upload support to UI Elements

    Currently, Content Uploader UI Element only supports uploading files. We want the ability to expand that functionality to folders.

  7. Support deleting the current version

    Currently there is no way to delete the current version or head of the version history. The only way to achieve the same effect is to promote a previous version and delete what was once the current version.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. Allow external conversion engines for proprietary formats

    We receive various proprietary formats that can only be converted by the original manufacturers. We want the platform to configure external conversion providers which would then be able to convert the formats to neutral Box formats such as PDF or MP4. This will create new integration opportunities for providers such as Autodesk, Adobe, CCTV providers.

  11. Create an API endpoint to "Forget App" and "Forget All" Apps

    From within the WebApp a user can go to their Account Settings --> Security tab and require re-authentication for an application by clicking "Forget App" for a specific app login or "Forget All". We believe there is value it making this available via the API so that this could be triggered by an Enterprise Application. This comes up most frequently around compromised accounts but would also be valuable when a device with the Box Desktop apps installed goes out for repair.

  12. Request refresh token update again

    OAuth2 refresh token update can be performed only once.
    * Because the previous refresh token becomes invalid immediately.
    However, there are unfortunate cases where a network disconnection occurs and the client is unable to obtain the refresh token.
    Therefore, we would like to change the behavior so that the refresh token update can be requested again only for a short time.
    Also, please publish the ping endpoint to a third-party that can check the communication with the Box server. (Box Drive is already using)

  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. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. Need to send message with collaborator invite by using java SDK or any rest point

    We have to automate the process where I need a code to send an optional message along with a collaborator invite. With Box Ui we can send optional message along with collaborator invite but I didn't find any method in BOX SDK .

  17. Improve wording on Box Edit confirmation prompt

    Improve wording on Box Edit confirmation prompt

    When a file is opened with Box Edit from UI elements, we display a confirmation prompt that asks user to proceed or not (this is UI elements only and not displayed when opening file from webapp). Currently, the prompt lets you choose approve/reject, but we want this text changed to OK/cancel (just like other Windows apps).

  19. extend external collaborators

    Our internal policy expires external collaborators after 90 days. We have a few folders where we have over 400 external collaborators where we would like to maintain access beyond 90 days Is it possible to programmatically extend access to the users in those folders.
