  1. We want to be able to use the BoxAPI only from whitelisted IP addresses

    We want to be able to use the BoxAPI only from whitelisted IP addresses
    (For example, register the IP address list of our proxy server )

    We believe it is the best to be able to specify a list of accessible IP address range on the apps in the application registration screen

  2. I would like to automatically set some options when creating a Box user. This is more about options in the Account settings.

    We are currently provisioning automatically BOX users via our IDP and SAML assertion.When a user is added to an Active Directory group, his BOX account is automatically created.

    I would like to automatically set some options when creating a BOX user. This is more about options in the Account settings. For example : country, number of lines displayed by page, default homepage…

    Having particular attributes or API calls to manage these issues would fulfill the need.

  3. Total space used and total space allocated at enterprise level through API

    Whenever we want to get total space used and total space allocated at enterprise level through api, we have to iterate through every user. Even then total space allocated at enterprise level would not be 100% accurate. If you guys can expose any api where we would get those information accurately.

  5. Possible to unlock by just id of the lock object

    Locks may have been destroyed by others.
    In the current, just before releasing the lock, the owner of the lock needs to confirm that the owner is himself, so it is useless.
    If we can release this from the object returned at locked, we can write logic more smartly.

  7. Ability to Initiate Custom CLI Scripts from Admin Console

    Admin/Co-Admin Only Function.

    For co-admins -This could be added as an optional setup parameter. Scope would be user administration and custom reporting. A user defined menu to initiate "batch job " . The script selection display could include script name, description and the ability to link to a documentation folder in box.

  9. New field that indicates whether that specific folder has any collaborations of its own, i.e. not inherited from a parent

    We have a big problem on our hands when it comes to obtaining all of the collaborations a user created inviting others to their content. There simply is no quick way of doing this, especially on users having massive folders. We discovered that the GET action on the /Folders endpoint has an available request field called “hascollaborations” which indicates whether the folder has any collaborations. I really hoped we could leverage this to cut down on the unnecessary calls to the /Folders/{folderId}/collaborations endpoint if the folder being iterated over had no collaborations, but unfortunately it returns “true” even if

  10. iOS SDK

    'Mark for offline' capability in SDK. Either read-only or edit-sync is a critical requirement for field worker use cases.

    With current SDK developers need to build this which is expensive and risky.

  12. Start accepting an array of strings as 'aud'

    Hi. I'm trying to use jwt authentication with box. I'm new to JWT. The library I'm using seems to send the 'aud' value as an array of strings, and looking at the specification for JWT, that's what it's supposed to send. This doesn't work with box though, box only allows a single string as 'aud'.

  14. Add length of field to API documentation

    It would be nice to explicitly mention the length of some of the fields. In our enterprise account all the users had 10-digit UIDs, so I thought that was the standard length, but we had some users with preexisting lite accounts rolled in and a few of them had 8-digit or 9-digit UIDs. I see now that the example UID provided had 9 digits, so my bad there, but I initially just looked at the 'id' attribute under 'user object' to try and find the length and it would be nice I think to have something like 'id / string…

    Thanks for the suggestion. We generally don’t provide lengths for fields unless there is a concious decision to define a specific length or range as a contract. Given that the type of field for user id is a string, the fact that user id values ranged from 8-10 digits is an implementation detail, not a guarantee.

  16. Improve CORS whitelist wildcard support

    I would love to be able to use wildcards in CORS with a little more specificity. In particular, for review apps on Heroku, you will have a url that is auto-generated for each pull request, so something like http://my-app-dev-pr-523.herokuapp.com. I would like to be able to add http://my-app-dev-pr*.herokuapp.com to the CORS list but it currently flags that is an improper URL so I have to do the much more broad (less secure) http://*.herokuapp.com

  18. Rollback option when db crash

    After creating folder or uploading files into box there will be chance of occuring backend database crash or lose connection between datasource . In this case we should roll back our transaction(like revert folder creation or file upload).

    Many actions in both are idemptotent and can be safely retried. For those which are not, it is the responsibility of a client to implement transaction guarantees if required. There are common patterns for this such as the two-phase commit and SAGA pattern. If there is more information for a specific capability that is required to faciliate these, please add that to the comments.

  19. Expose ability to restore versions of files via API

    It would be beneficial to expose this information via API when interacting with file versions to enable this for App Users via a portal

  20. Create Persistent Access Tokens

    We want to embed a folder into our sales portal. We want our users/partners to be able to search within the folder.

    We don't want to manage a separate code repo just for generating a downscoped token. Would be great if Box could support downscoped permanent tokens to cover these use cases.

    We cannot search with in a folder with an embed widget.
