  1. Service Accounts should be rate limited differently than user accounts

    Currently, when you use a service account to access Box API's, in order to get access to content you need to use the As-User header "impersonate" users in order to access the files that are owned by then.

    So if you are doing something like using a service account to crawl through all the files in a folder in box, you would need to use the As-User header in order to impersonate a user who owns/has access to each file while doing it.

    But there is a huge problem here is that the rate limiting is done using the As-User…

  2. 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…

  5. Unique delivery of webhooks

    We need a unique delivery of webhooks for each file trigger event. Currently, for trigger FILE.UPLOADED we get multiple webhook calls.

  6. 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.

  8. Box UI Content Explorer and Content Picker: Support Download ZIP Natively through top-level Element options

    Box's REST API now supports ZIP downloads via the external API in addition to the internal managed web app. It has been a common ask to provide native support for this endpoint in the Box UI Elements - Content Explorer & Content Picker UI Elements through exposing the feature as a top-level option/property when rendering the UI Elements.

  10. Open file from UI Elements without approval

    Ability to open a file from UI Elements Open With with Box Edit without being prompted to Approve/Deny to proceed.

    Currently, every time a file is opened from UI Elements, Box Edit displays the prompt and asks the user to Approve/Deny before the user can start locally opening and editing the file. This adds friction to user experience, and we want the option to not display this prompt and auto-approve the file open from UI Elements

  11. Set enterprise settings via api

    We have an open risk item on the Box platform due to lack of controls on change management.
    Specifically:
    Box console settings must be manually performed across dev, test and production environments.
    Lack of automated mechanisms to maintain consistency with the settings across the environments may allow weaknesses in lower environments (dev/test) to be exploited to exfiltrate data or modify data or inconsistencies between functionality tested in lower environments and what is configured in prod.
    We would like the ability to be able to configure the settings via API so we can build environment management into out CICD pipeline. We…

  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…

    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

  20. Remove 100 "to_user_ids" limit of WebhookV1.

    With webhook V1, we have the upper bound of 100 users in "touserids" field for each notification, so when a webhook has too many recipients (that is, more than 100 users are to be set in "touserids" field), we send multiple webhook notification for a single event so "touserids" is kept within 100 users for each notification.

    For e.g. if an upload event was to trigger notification to 1000 recipients, we send 10 webhook notifications to the notification url with 100 users embedded in "touserids" field of each notification.

    This causes duplicate…
