  1. Retain modified_by field on GET calls on content for deleted users

    Right now, when using the API to make GET calls on content, the 'modifiedby' field will be NULL if the user that made the modification is deleted. For reporting purposes, it would be ideal if this information is retained. The 'createdby' field is retained, so it seems strange that modified_by results in a NULL result

  2. Documents within Folders

    It would be helpful to have the ability to highlight all documents in a folder (the file names) and paste into Excel to evaluate. If this is already possible please send me instructions jill.hall@lennar.com

  3. Company Intranet Functionality

    Would be great if Box had a company intranet functionality similar to platforms like Simppler, Igloo, Claromentis, Jostle, etc... Many of them integrate with Box, but one stop shopping is always preferred. A digital workplace is so important now that so many are working remotely. Bringing all of our apps under one roof (e.g., Box, Salesforce, Teams, Zoom, Yammer...), giving employees a portal/hub to go every morning to improve communication, lighten the inbox, providing a place to hold not only our knowledge but our policies, forms, news, process management for things like onboarding new hires, training staff, etc...

  4. Long live server side auth master access token

    A server side authentication token that is long lived and provides access to all endpoints, not just read and write like JWT auth. I have posted a support ticket here describing my needs: https://support.box.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/1500000258202-Server-Side-Authentication-Scopes

  5. Ability to update files by pathname

    Instead of having to provide a fileId to perform an action on any given file, it would be nice to be able to pass a pathname as an alternative option

  6. We need Box enablement to all the App user to "see" the refreshes of documents periodically

    We want app user functionality to crawl a given Box folder and refresh every 24 hrs so we always have the latest document ingested into Watson Discovery.

  9. Granular control of API calls within UI elements

    Mitie use Box platform to surface payslips to their employees. For this they use a Box UI element. As they analyse their API consumption they feel that the UI elements are using a lot of API calls - more than planned for and they are worried this will impact the price of their engagement come renewal. One thing in particular they have noticed is that when a user previews a document, the UI elements pre-fetches what looks like the next five documents, presumably for performance reasons. Since their users only every preview one document (the current months payslip) they are…

  11. I want to be able to have the thumbnail urls returned in the metadata search results.

    When doing a metadata search, returning the thumbnail url (or the representation template url) with each entry in the results will make it so that multiple API calls to get the thumbnail url for each entry after the search is not required.

  12. Single API call to delete user and transfer folders for that user

    Before deleting a user from box system we can transfer the root folder from one user account to
    another.
    Once the root folder is transferred only then delete API must be triggered.
    So in all, the delete operation will have to call two API one to transfer and another to delete.

    But as the transfer API call will return synchronously.
    For users with a large number of files and folders, this means the call could take minutes or hours to return.

    So the delete operation will be in pending state until we receive the transfer API response.

    Does box now…

  14. Multi-file select for Upload UI Element when browsing device

    For the Upload UI Element, when a user chooses 'browse your device,' we expect users to be able to select more than one file. This is an issue for the process we are building in our Document Vault.

    At this point we have no plans to create powershell specific SDK. However, the Box Command Line utility can be called from within powershell which may be of help. https://developer.box.com/guides/tooling/sdks/cli/

    Furthermore there is some good (if a bit dated) information on how to use the Windows SDK from within Powershell here: https://community.box.com/t5/Platform-and-Development-Forum/Automating-box-processes-using-powershell-and-the-box-windows/m-p/50342

  17. Allow http://127.0.0.1 as redirect_url in published box apps

    It is currently disallowed to use redirect_urls of the form http://127.0.0.1 in published apps.

    These give the error "insecureredirecturi".

    These are allowed in unpublished apps.

    Having a redirect to 127.0.0.1 is very useful for native apps which run on the users computer (eg rclone https://rclone.org ).

    It is pretty much impossible to do https to 127.0.0.1 - you can't get a valid certificate for it. See this link for details: https://letsencrypt.org/docs/certificates-for-localhost/ - and also for reasons why using http://127.0.0.1 is treated as secure by browsers.

    I'll describe how rclone, a native CLI app works. Rclone runs on the…

  18. macOS SDK support

    It would be great to see full macOS support in the Box SDK.

    I realize that the name of the Apple-flavored SDK is "box-ios-sdk", but "osx" is listed as one of the supported platforms. It compiles and links just fine, but the code path bails on OAuth sign in support.

    It looks like most of the SDK would work fine for API calls post authentication, so I think it's mainly a matter of wiring up browser-based sign-in like Dropbox does for their SDK: https://github.com/dropbox/SwiftyDropbox. This seems to be confirmed by a response from @sujaygarlanka in a submitted GitHub issue: …

  19. API-level access to Box Admin Console settings

    Amazon has many EIDs and their security team needs to be able to apply and monitor enterprise settings in a centralized, scalable way.
