Shared Link Lookup Tool
Problem: Admins often need to do investigation of files stored in Box and all they have to go off of is the file/folder's shared link. Since admins can't search by shared link in the current Content Manager UI, a Shared Link Lookup tool would provide similar information. Key Features:-Provide ability to enter a shared link (standard or vanity URL)-Information returned after searching: -File/folder name -File/folder owner -File/folder location (Owner -> Folder hierarchy) -Status (whether the file/folder has been deleted or not) -Admin-level 'delete' (ability for the admin to delete the file on the spot)

As admins, it would be incredibly helpful to have the ability to look up a Shared Link to see the folder name, id and owner.

A couple ideas (we don't necessarily need both of them; either would be helpful):
1) Ability to effectively "reset" all public links in my organization to "people in this folder" but allow users to change certain files/folders back to public if they need it. The idea here is that I'm an admin and whether intended or unintended, I have users making files available publicly that shouldn't be. I want to allow my users to share certain files/folders publicly, but over time we accumulate links that shouldn't be public. I want to do a hard reset on all publicly shared links to be sure nothing is getting leaked. Yes, it forces those who have legitimate needs for public links to go re-share them publicly, but that's easier than going through each file one-by-one to disable it.
2) I want to disable the ability to share links publicly for the majority of my managed users and have just a few that have permissions to share publicly. This is better than #1 because then I don't have to periodically mass-reset all public links. I can be sure that the few who can share publicly are trained to use it responsibly.

We would like a dashboard to automatically remove shared links instead of having to manually navigate to each shared link to disable the shared links
