  2. My application does not require download permission

    We would like you to provide a way in the developer console to remove the download permission from our application.

    We are worried about leaking access tokens.
    Our application needs Box administrator privileges. Then change the folder name or delete the collaborator.
    However, it does not access the content of files in box.

  5. 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.

  6. 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?

  7. Exempt New Box View service account from the "Restrict Content Creation" setting

    If an enterprise admin has enabled "Restrict Content Creation" for their enterprise (under Admin Console > Enterprise Settings > Content & Sharing), only Admins and Co-Admins are able to create folders and files in the All Files location. This restriction also applies to the service account associated with New Box View apps. This means that if an admin wants to keep "Restrict Content Creation" enabled, they cannot use the New Box View with the same enterprise. The New Box View service account cannot be made a Co-Admin. The "Restrict Content Creation" flag also limits this user from owning any root-level…

    Try using Service Accounts. It’s similar to what New Box View (App Token Apps) offer except that they manage the folders where they upload the content to. You would have to manage how they redistribute the content across different folders in their service account.

  8. Request for 'RenameFolder' method in Developer Toolkit

    Easily allow modification to a particular Box Folder name

  10. Picker: Allow to be configured for files only or folders only

    Connections uses picker in different contexts.

    For files: allow only file selection, but still allow nav down folder tree. Remove the 'add file' button.

    For folders: Allow only folder selection, do not show files. Do not show add files or all files button.

  12. Make a Custom Action app available to managed users only

    Create a public app that is available to members of the enterprise only. We would like to create a custom app that allows users to launch a Record Manager app that's tied to the main enterprise record software.

    Currently Box only allows this to be available as a public app, which we do not want to do. We prefer to limit this app to be available to managed users of this EID only.
