  2. More efficient way to get metadata on files in search

    Search by metadata returns a list of files. That list isn't much use without knowing the metadata it matched. To use Box's metadata for anything past the initial search query that's related to display, each individual search result must be queried for its metadata.

  4. Provide a way to delete or rename (API name) a metadata key

    Once a mistake is made when creating a metadata template or key there is no way to delete the content. This poses a serious issue for developers especially if their code manages multiple EIDs. If a mistake is made, application code must be altered which is more difficult than being able to delete a key.Having the ability to create templates via the API is not a real solution as one could always make a mistake in their template creation code.

  5. Allow Metadata search for files uploaded via Box API

    Documents in BOX are not searchable based on Metadata when uploaded using BOX API

    Document uploaded into BOX via EPHESOFT using BOX API and 3 metadata elements are attached to the document. We can see the document in the BOX and the metadata elements are present in the Custom Metadata section in the BOX.

    There are two ways to find files in Box based on the metadata. The existing Search API provides a metadata filtering option and also indexes metadata content. The Metadata Query API provides SQL-like syntax for finding files based on specific metadata condtions. See https://developer.box.com/guides/metadata/queries/create/ and https://developer.box.com/guides/search/full-text-search/

    If there are unmet needs please add a comment!

  6. error in documentation

    On the Authenticate with JWT (SDK) page the Node code snippet creates a const "configJSON," but then when the page references it later, it calls it "appConfig" in another code snippet instead. It references the enterpriseId in the configJSON variable but calls it appConfig.enterpriseId out of nowhere instead. The code breaks like this. Please fix for the sake of people trying to use these code snippets.

  7. Stop interception of browser search shortcut in developer docs

    The box developer docs hijack CMD+F and that's exactly not what I expect it to do

    CMD+F is a shortcut for most (all?) browsers to bring up a native Find dialog, but your reference docs hijack it in favor of some type of auto-complete search on the page which is actually never what I want, or expect to happen.

  8. Qs re: API and "is_external_collab_restricted" parameter

    I believe that the API allows for updating the "isexternalcollab_restricted" parameter. However, the API documentation and example does not illustrate this. Would you kindly update the documentation on this?

    If I'm wrong and adjusting this paramter via the API actually isn't possible, would it be possible to request this be available?

  9. Add Python code example

    On page https://developer.box.com/docs/work-with-users
    It would be super-helpful to have a Python example for Generate a User Access Token.
    I've had a tough time finding the right Python call to use for App Users for getting an access token.

    We have made several updates to our SDKs since this was filed. If there is a specific API / SDK that’s still not returning the appropriate error message, please leave a comment to let us know.

  12. API currently doesn't expose email addresses of non-Box uploaders who upload via email

    Specifically in the context of uploading via email.

    API currently does show emails of uploaders that are Box users, whether in enterprise or not. It does not show emails of uploaders that are not Box users (name shows as "Unknown User".

    Webapp shows names for Box users, email addresses for non-Box users. It seems odd that the webapp would expose the email address but the API doesn't.

  18. Specify proxy information in BoxDeveloperEditionAPIConnection

    In the Box Java SDK, the BoxDeveloperEditionAPIConnection methods do not support specifying proxy information like the BoxAPIConnection methods do.

    This makes them impossible to use in a corporate environment where proxy information must be set.

    It would be nice if the SDK could be updated to support that so we do not have to fork the SDK and add in the logic ourselves.

    As of 2016, the Box File Picker does not allow the user to search within their account, which is a bad user experience.

  20. Allow documents (Word, PowerPoint, txt) to be downloaded as PDF

    Documents can only be downloaded via the Box Content API in their original format. It's sometimes desired to download a file directly in PDF, which reduces the size of the file.
