  1. Ability to ban App Token Applications

    Currently, we can require users to get approval from admin to authorize apps, but that leads to a number of emails generated to the admin. We want the ability to ban users from creating App Token Applications.

  2. Box CLI - need more output options for folders:items.

    Specific to "box folders:items" but probably other commands as well:

    1) If I'm asking for --csv, AND specifying the fields via --fields=, I don't need a header telling me the fields I just requested. I'd like an option to disable the header, or default disable it and make me add it back.

    2) If I'm asking for specific fields as --csv, give me just those fields. If I'm asking for --fields=id I don't want it served back to me as "folder,#", I don't want to know it's a folder. If I later do something against that ID that is not…

  3. Add "synchronize" or "versions" to the BoxCLI "folders:upload" functions

    I am looking for a way to "synchronize" a folder and all of it's contents with the BoxCLI.
    So, lets say i run this command:

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

    How can i upload the folder, and only "Update" what has changed?

    It would be nice to have something for "Folders" like you have for "Files"

    "box files:versions:upload FILEID PATH"

    maybe - "box folders:versions:upload FOLDERID PATH"

    which would update all of the contents of the folder, version stuff that exist, add items that don't.

    I know i can "box:folders:delete"... then "box:folders:upload" again.. but seems a waist of bandwidth and time..

  4. 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!

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. Enable API apps for select users

  12. 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.

  14. Real time progress of a file upload via box upload api

    When a direct box upload api is invoked, there is no way to know the real time progress of upload. It would be good to get real time progress from box to notify users about the same on our UI.

  15. API searches for a given folder name and creates a folder if not found

    In today's world , there is an api that searches for folder and if folder not found returns 404. There is a create folder api which returns 409 error if folder name exists.
    This leads tomaking multiple calls to box first to identify or know folder existence and then another call for creating a folder if not found.

    There is a need for api which does following

    Search for a folder given the folder name(input =folder name)
    if folder exists with such a name
    return folderId
    if folder does not exists with such a folder name
    create a folder with…

  16. Cancel a direct upload in progress through API

    When a direct upload begins via an API, there is no option to stop/cancel the upload while it is in progress. A file can only be deleted after a successful upload.

    Provide an option to stop/revert upload via an API. If a user realizes that he/she has uploaded the wrong file and wishes to cancel the upload while in progress is not possible.

    Canceling an upload while in progress is possible through box webpage but not through via.

  17. Alphabetize collaborator names

    Hello, when I view collaborators to a file/folder, the "name" column cannot be alphabetized. I tried clicking on it to make this occur and it is greyed out. When comparing this to a list of names alphabetically it would be so efficiently helpful to have the Box folder listed by name and not by date. Can you please make this available?

  18. 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.

  19. 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)

  20. 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.
