  1. Unmanageable API Key Whitelists

    Enterprises with a lot of active software development groups have unmanageable API Key whitelists. This manifests in a lot of ways.

    There is no way to limit API Keys to development (limit liability). Typical dev-qa-prod cycle requires 3 API keys. No way to associate API Keys to specific projects. There is no way to tell if old API Keys are still in use.

    We have addressed whitelist management for JWT apps and OAuth app support is coming soon.

    Separately, we plan to support the dev / prod / QA process with Sandboxes in a much better way. More details soon.

  2. 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.

  3. Request to Add Overwrite/Version Functionality to File Copy Operations via API

    Currently the only way to add a version to a file is to download it and upload the new version with the If-Match header.

    We are archiving files when a new file version is uploaded to a "main" folder, and to do that we have to download the existing version to our server and then generate a separate request to upload the file.

    Ideally, we would be able to combine the requests into one - a COPY (https://box-content.readme.io/reference#copy-a-file) that can overwrite an existing file in the destination folder if the appropriate etag is supplied during the copy request.

    This is not something we will build due to other roadmap commitments.

    Alternatively, you could always upload latest version to “backup folder,” delete file from “current version” folder, then copy “backup folder” version to “current version” folder.

    This will get you 100% version history in backup folder and avoid the need to download & upload the file a second time.

  4. Thumbnails should be able to be requested in a batch.

    You should be able to download all thumbnails for the items within a folder.

  5. display request for Try this API

    In the API reference Try this API displays Response Headers and Response Body. It would be nice if it also displayed the request URL and maybe request headers and body depending on HTTP type.

    Cheers...

    We don’t offer an API endpoint for these types of queries today, so it’s not possible to add.

    When you create a user that already exists, you get a 409 error code returned – user already exists. Is this sufficient?

  7. Add ability to make generic API requests to the .NET SDK

    Currently, the Node and Python SDKs allow devs to make their own API calls with a generic "request" method. This is useful when a dev wants to use an endpoint that has not yet been added to the SDKs:

    https://github.com/box/box-node-sdk/#helpers
    https://github.com/box/box-python-sdk#other-requests

  9. 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.

  10. Option to select a folder_id other than 0 (the user's root folder) within the Move Owned Items API.

    As a large company, we aim to fully automate the deprovisioning of users using Box Platform.

    We would like an option within the Move Owned Items API (https://developer.box.com/v2.0/reference#move-folder-into-another-users-folder) to select a destination location other than 0 (all files).

    The goal would be to automate this process and allow folders and files to be moved within an existing folder rather than at the root level.

  11. Support alternate URL's for end-users who block Box

    Some external clients are blocking *box.com and as a result can't use the app built on Box platform.

  12. 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.

    We do not plan to suppress these updates. However, we will reconsider if we get additional feedback from other users.

  15. Folder Level App Integration in Developer Console

    Is there any plan to allow developers to give folder access to Web App integrations without having to request a special permission from Box?

    In the current process, Developers can enable the context menu for folders to present integration features, but to do so they must contact Box first. "Send a request to Box for pre-approval to build a folder-level integration."

    https://docs.box.com/docs/box-web-application-integrations#section-step-4-select-an-integration-from-the-more-actions-dropdown

    We would like the ability to add folder level integrations via the Developer Console without having to contact Box Support.

  16. Add API for CORS Domains

    With the introduction of the UI Elements, managing CORS domains has been really important for developers who create third party apps that are then used across many domains owned by their customers. This gets unwieldy to manage manually.
