  2. Able to get Box user ID by querying the username

    Hi, currently in order to find a box user id for ONE user, we need to use
    https://developer.box.com/reference#get-all-users-in-an-enterprise
    to get ALL users and then filter for the specific user.

    If would be nice if we can simply query a user's box user id by the username.

    There is an optional parameter called `filter_term` which can be used to retrieve a user on the basis of the name or login. See link below and a snippet from the dev docs.
    https://developer.box.com/reference/get-users/#param-filter_term

    `filter_term`
    Limits the results to only users who’s name or login start with the search term.

    For externally managed users, the search term needs to completely match the in order to find the user, and it will only return one user at a time.

  3. Provide VDI Support for Sync

    Alternatively, get added to the citrix virtual computer to your account.

  5. Ability to mirror documents in other root folders

    Our organization utilizes the collaboration with external users to give them access to view one specific folder relative to their client account. We do not want these users to have access to our main folder that houses the original documents for their client account, but rather only this one specific folder that has a copy of selected documents relative to their positions on the Board. Right now, we have to manually upload or delete new documents to both folders. If there is a change to our original document, we have to manually upload the new version to the copy folder…

    Hello, if we understand your request correctly, you could use the bookmark feature to bookmark a link to specific files so the Board will always be routed to the up-to-date version of the original document but not be able to view the rest of the items in the main folder.

  6. Allow users to invite collaborators from Box Drive

    Allow users to invite collaborators from Box Drive, rather than only being able to do this from the website.

    Users have the ability today in Box Drive to ‘Manage Collaborators’ via the right click menu of a file. When selected, this will cross-launch to the manage collaborator page on the Box.com web application.

  7. Auto-Update Drive so there is no end user interaction needed

    We have 15000 users and trying to manage manual updates for Drive is tedious and often painful.

    Box Drive will silently update without user interaction if an update is available when the user launches Box Drive (such as after they reboot their machine)

  8. File folder tree report needed for potential security breach

    Scenario: Employees have improperly stored data in box.com by marking data as public that should not have been labeled in such a manner. The data is sufficiently sensitive that the company would like to quantify and evaluate what has been labeled in such a way to make the data public.

  10. Allow admins to log users out of all box sessions or api for revoking tokens

    Admins would like to have the ability to force a log out from all devices and sessions. This could be for:


    • User termination

    • User's SSO credentials compromised (attacker could grant access to a third party app, which keeps a session alive even if sso credentials are reset)

    On an API perspective, there could be an endpoint which destroys all tokens for a user, and it would require "manage users" from an admin perspective.

  12. Clarification of SDK Authentication

    It would be really nice if there was a good clean copy of the authentication methods script. The pieces and parts don't work and it is hard to figure out why. Example... Trying to authenticate with OAuth2 you can't get it to work with the examples and then jumping over to upload files doesn't jive. Aside from the Dev Token method, I can't get anything to work. HOW DO I AUTHENTICATE WITH OAUTH2?

  15. Salesforce Integration: Create default folder structure in the Box content of an object

    Set default folders structure in the Box content of an object when a record is created in Salesforce. This should be an evolution of ‘Box for Salesforce’.

  16. show automation creator as the sender of automation task assignment email

    Currently, automation task email notifications show the sender as the primary email regardless of who created the automation

    In a large company, users might not even know who the admin is and discard the emails as spam or unnecessary.

  17. Remove Open with Office Online Option

    We would like the ability to remove the option for opening documents in Office Online (ex: Microsoft Excel Online: Open this file in your browser). We are not O365 customers and people are often confused since the option to open in the native desktop Office app looks practically the same.

  18. Give users access to Automations without becoming a co-admin

    Certain communications do not need to go to Automations creators. Rather, they are truly meant for co-admins. Additional granularity would help reduce noise.

  20. Workflow phases for easier understanding of progress

    We have a workflow that could be over 25 steps in total. These steps are separated, in their original design, into phases such as Preparation > Briefing > Development > Sign-off > Release. Currently, it's impossible for users to see which stage they are in or which stages have been completed, as they are not defined. A user would have to know the number of steps in each phase to understand this currently. Phasing is a basic feature included in most workflow systems.
