  1. 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

  2. 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…

  3. 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.

  5. Multi-file select for Upload UI Element when browsing device

    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

  11. 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…

  12. Allow http://127.0.0.1 as redirect_url in published box apps

    It is currently disallowed to use redirect_urls of the form http://127.0.0.1 in published apps.

    These give the error "insecureredirecturi".

    These are allowed in unpublished apps.

    Having a redirect to 127.0.0.1 is very useful for native apps which run on the users computer (eg rclone https://rclone.org ).

    It is pretty much impossible to do https to 127.0.0.1 - you can't get a valid certificate for it. See this link for details: https://letsencrypt.org/docs/certificates-for-localhost/ - and also for reasons why using http://127.0.0.1 is treated as secure by browsers.

    I'll describe how rclone, a native CLI app works. Rclone runs on the…

  13. macOS SDK support

    It would be great to see full macOS support in the Box SDK.

    I realize that the name of the Apple-flavored SDK is "box-ios-sdk", but "osx" is listed as one of the supported platforms. It compiles and links just fine, but the code path bails on OAuth sign in support.

    It looks like most of the SDK would work fine for API calls post authentication, so I think it's mainly a matter of wiring up browser-based sign-in like Dropbox does for their SDK: https://github.com/dropbox/SwiftyDropbox. This seems to be confirmed by a response from @sujaygarlanka in a submitted GitHub issue: …

  14. Update the .NET SDK to support .NET Core 3.1

    The current .NET Core NuGet package is set to support .NET Standard 1.4, but this means that support for old libraries is required. For example, the SDK throws exceptions when getting an admin client due to incompatibilities with System.IdentityModel.JwtToken >= 5.4. These sort of problems are going to continue to happen as the framework progresses.

  16. View and configure enterprise webhooks in the UI

    Provide a UI where we can see the webhooks that have been created across our enterprise applications. We have had some webhooks deleted because of users deleting folders or webhooks. Also, we have a case where a webhook stopped triggering. After calling the 'list all webhooks' api, we don't see that webhook created. No one has deleted it so it's difficult to understand what happened to this webhook trigger.

  18. Read Enterprise Settings using API

    Is there a way to read Enterprise Settings using API? That would be much beneficial where the Admin can choose certain settings like Storage and there wont be a necessity to change the Code every time the Admin wants to change the settings. The API can read the existing settings and manage users based on those configurations. Currently, the application that manages Box accounts has to store those locally and every time there is a change in those settings, that calls for a Change management and code deployment.

  19. Add ability to get a user's collaborations via API

    Since there is a function to get a list of invitations to the group, I want to provide the same to the users.
    Like,
    https://api.box.com/2.0/users/:user_id/collaborations

    We don’t currently plan to provide such an API, however please leave a comment if you have more information about how this would be used. In the interim, you can identify all of a user’s collaborations by requesting items in the user’s root folder (id = 0) and filtering out those where the owned_by user is the current user. This would require an additional API call for each item to get the collaboration id, but if you are only interested in knowing which items re collaborated versus owned by the user, it may be sufficient for your purposes.

  20. Expose user's last activity date and last login date via API

    The Box CLI:GET commandlet is a good tool but if it could grab more basic information, it would be great.. For my company, we would like to see the Last Activity and Last Login of an end user's Box Account. This would help us determine when to de-provision a Box Account after we can verify it hasn't been used in X amount of time.
