  2. Add filter function to Event API to limit the result by specifying a path collection

    Event API result is a list of all updated files in an "entire" site.
    For enterprise use-cases, the volume of this returned data is inevitably very large.
    Thus, even if a part of site needs to be monitored, the network bandwidth is consumed unnecessarily and it casues the performance issue.
    Could you add a filter function to Event API so that the API returns only events related to the files in the specified path collection?
     
    This is the API asking to enhance

  3. Include Path Collection in the result of Event API

    Event API does not include the path collection for updated files. Thus, to get the updated files, another File Info API should be called.
    This situation increases the number of API calls and causes the complexity of the client program and the performance issue.
    Could you include the path collection in Event API results?

  4. Partial file writing API

    I want the API feature that updates only a part of the file .

    Currently, I download entire file, and then write and upload it.
    It is inefficient when if only want a few changes.

  5. Allow me to link to other folders and files in box

    I can create a bookmark to another folder in box, but the experience and visualisation of these is not useful - links to folders get lost in the file list.

    Bookmarks to other folders in box, should be listed as a folder, not a file, perhaps with a different icon to show they are linked folders rather than hierarchic folders.

  6. Multi-user and automatic uploads

    Make box access suitable for multi user computers and have mechanism for automatically uploading data.

    Use case: Lab equipment used by multiple users producing large amounts of data, automatically uploading this to box so as to limit required user interaction and keep local storage in check. Modern equipment can produce large amounts of data and being able to upload this automatically would help with data management. Requiring user intervention to manage their data is less practical with a very large user base so automating this process would again help with this process.

  7. Python example for "create upload session" is wrong

    The Python sample for "Create upload session" seems wrong:

    What you provided is:
    filesize = 26000000
    upload
    session = client.file('11111').createuploadsession(file_size)

    But it should be:
    client.folder('11111').createuploadsession(filesize, filesize).

    Please check and confirm.

  8. Faster uploads by allowing to select UDP for the upload protocol

    For faster upload speed, allow users to select option to utilize UDP for the upload protocol, instead of TCP.

  9. Cascading Metadata - applying policy should stay in affect so future value updates cascade without force.

    Metadata cascade policy should stay in effect and push future value changes down (as per policy) - until the policy is removed.

    Futher only the value(s) updated should be pushed down, not the full set of metadata values..

  11. Folder Integration App can't use API to upload file to a folder if user has Uploader permission


    • I set the various Uploader permissions (Uploader, Viewer Uploader, Previewer Uploader) on a folder, but was not able to use our Folder Integration Quick Scan app to upload a scanned file to those folders.

    • I had to use Owner/Editor permissions to upload a scanned file through our application and the Box API.

    Why is Box not letting our application upload a file when the Uploader permission is set on a folder?

    Thanks.

  12. Folder Integrations not available on All Files unless user is owner

    We have an App Integration for Folders; Quick Scan. If a user has access to upload to a folder they can use Quick Scan from the Folder's More Actions, Integrations menu to scan a document directly into the folder.

    It appears, if a user is the Owner of the folder, the Integration to Quick Scan appears when accessing the Folder's More Options from the All Files area. But, if the user is not the Owner, no Folder Integrations appear. The Folder Integrations always appear if the folder More Options is accessed from a sub-folder, i.e. not the All Files area.

  13. Ability to zip/unzip large files from within Box so transport to/from Box isn't a huge bandwidth or time-consuming issue.

    Many folks are requesting or have requested the ability to zip/unzip large files from within Box and being able to view them from within Box so transport to/from Box isn't a huge bandwidth or time-consuming issue. Zipping large files is a must-have in these days of high-resolution images and A/V technology.

  14. API endpoint to return ALL objects (recursively) but simplified to create browser tree

    I am using the jstree library in my application to create a full browser tree of a user's BOX resources. Please create an endpoint to return ALL objects (recursive) available to an authenticated user inside one root folder . These objects would only require the object ID, TYPE, NAME, VERSION and PARENT(parent-id as string instead of parent object). The jstree lib can take this data and create an entire file browsing tree and then users would call up more information when they click on an object. This would greatly reduce the number of API calls to your server and possibly…

  17. preview print

    Allow the permission to just "view" & "print" files.
    (However, you manage to do this)

    ...Maybe it's as simple as having a tick button for a Previewer to also allow printing

    ...Currently, a Previewer can view and not print,

    ...a Previewer/Uploader can currently Preview and Upload (Print is meant to work here but is currently not an option despite permission tables saying it should)

    ...a Viewer can currently Preview, Print and Download.

  18. File Shortcuts

    I want to be able to have file shortcuts. They are just pointers to a file that can be placed in other folders throughout the file system. This makes it seem like there are copies of the file in multiple folders and all of the copies get updated whenever one gets updated because its actually one file with a bunch of references pointing to it.

  19. Allow reorganization of received collaborated folders

    I would like to request that all users are allowed, as non-folder owners, to place shared folders inside non-shared folders. This allows for better organization for users and therefore an overall better user experience. All other cloud services that I am a part of allow this.

    Example:
    I own the folders "fruit" and "orange." Someone else owns the folder "apple" and shares it with me. Currently, I cannot place the folder "apple" inside of my "fruit" folder. I would like to request this is changed.

    Currently, Box permissions (and as it was explained to me, security) does not allow it.…

  20. Updated needed for Firefox and Internet Explorer for "Share Folder" task.

    When attempting to "Share Folder" in Box, when signed in through Firefox OR Internet Explorer, an error occurs. The only work-around we have found is by using Google Chrome. This feature worked just fine in Firefox only a week ago. Please repair.
