  1. Add Support for Reading Tags on Weblinks

    You can currently add tags for weblinks via the API, but can't read them. This is a huge oversight, which makes it nearly impossible to add any sort of dynamic filtering capabilities. That is, there's no way to return (or parse) out a list of available tags -- since you can't read any of them.

    To accomplish any sort of dynamic filtering, you have to bypass the tags altogether and add them to a field you can read. For example, after a colon in the title field. However, that's a temporary stop-gate solution with issues of its own.

  2. Allow non-admin users to call 'Get Enterprise Users API'.

    I want to develop a program that provides an auto-completion feature that displays the names of enterprise users.

    However, the current "Get Enterprise Users API" could only be called by co-admins.
    I also want to be able to call from other than co-admin.

    By the way, "Get Groups API" could be called from other than co-admins by providing the filter.
    I think there is a contradiction in this specification.

  3. Asynchronous API calls that return a JOB_ID rather than having the session cancelled after 60 seconds

    Currently API calls like the "Move Owned Items" almost always run longer than 60 seconds. As a result the session is killed by the Box infrastructure. The "Move Owned Items" task continues to run in basically an asynchronous background mode. But once this happens, the automation process has no way to check the status of the "Move Owned Items" task.

    A graceful way to handle this would be to return control back to the caller normally with a JOB_ID that can be used to call back to the "Move Owned Items" API call to check the status of the "background"…

  4. API technical and display name

    In metadata template designer: As in the API technical and display name are saved, at least the display name has to be changeable while the technical name has to be presented as a valuable information.

  5. "Scopes enabled by request" in the app authorization page

    Would like the "scopes enabled by request" (https://developer.box.com/docs/scopes#section-scopes-enabled-by-request) which have been enabled on their app to be listed in the app authorization or in the configuration page for their app in the dev console.

  6. Add FolderID in error messaging when attempting to create a folder of the same name in the same path through API

    Receive the folderID for an already created folder when attempting to create a folder of the same name in the same path through API.

  7. ReadOnly Downloads

    Allow files to be downloaded via the API when the only Application scope checked is "Read all files and folders stored in Box". Preferably as well users should be able to go into the list of apps authorized to access their files and enforce readOnly access as well.

    It is a completely unnecessary liability for apps that only need to download files, and an unnecessary security risk for a User/Organization's data.

  8. Add Custom URL for shared link via API

    Please add support to set custom url when setting up a shared link via API.

  9. Add field to see how a collaborator was added to a folder

    Currently the has_collaborations field with the API will show if a user was added as a result of inheritance (waterfall permissions) or if they were added directly to the specific folder, but there is no way to distinguish between those. For performance reasons and limit the amount of calls, it would be helpful if there was a filed that could be added to distinguish how a collab to a folder occurred

  11. Make source.parent.name to include all of path

    source.parent.name show just folder name.

    For example, if the collaborator folder is A and it lcates “All files/A”. the customer get api.box.com/2.0/events?streamtype=adminlo..,

    source/parent/name just show A. This behavior make the user not to find the folder easily.
    It should be shown “All files/A”

  12. Support for Collections in Content Explorer & Content Picker

    Some of our use cases revolve around searching for specific metadata field or date range.

    If UI Elements were able to be initialized with a collection, this would allow us to pass in a specific collection of files and display them easily even though those files may live in disparate folders.

  13. Pull list of all collaborators with a certain user_type at a folder level

    Currently, you can only search by user_type at the enterprise level as documented here: https://developer.box.com/v2.0/reference#get-all-users-in-an-enterprise

    It would be helpful to be able to do this at a folder level as well.

  14. Surface either EID or user_type when requesting collaboration object

    This request is not currently on our roadmap but we’ll update this request if that changes. In the mean time, you can use a subsequent request to get the user information and specify the enterprise in the `fields` query string parameter.

  15. Content Explorer Default View Property

    Box Content Explorer - allow an attribute to set default view to Grid (Thumbnail) view.

    This view option is available on the Embed iframe, but strangely not an option for Content Explorer - means that all of my users need an extra click each time). I cannot trigger a click as Content Explorer is already in an iFrame

  17. (API) Add 'can_change_expiration' to the {file|folder}.permissions

    We are publishing a 3rd-party app for Box.
    A setting has been added to prevent users from changing the expiration date of shared links.
    When this setting is enabled, sending POST of JSON containing 'sharedlink.unsharedat' will return a 400 Bad Request error
    Please add a 'canchangeexpiration' value to the permissions attribute of the file/folder object so that the correct POST requests parameter can be specified.

  18. Allow to Update Description in the Upload Section in File Request via API

    We would like the ability to customize the description field in the Upload Section of the file request via API.
    Currently via API we are only able to update the Header and the Header Description and the
    description under the upload section is only editable via the webapp.

    We are looking to automate the file request via API from certain templates. Certain information will get updated depending on what template we desire which includes the need to update the description under the file upload but currently that is not available via API

  19. API- Developer token

    Hi team, what would be great is to get the possibility when we develop an API to have a token valid for more than 60 minutes.
    Sometimes, to validate the principle of a dev, it's needs more than 1h
    maybe an other solution would be to create a private app with small validation as the purpose is an internal specific need.
