Add granularity to shared link controls
Based on organizational requirements and the variance, there should be additional controls such as limiting the capability to create shared links (open Links) to Admins or designated personnel as an option. This would allow for greater granularity as some divisions within an organization may have a need to share publicly, while also securing sensitive information
For now, we are focussed on solving bulk management issues with Shared Links.
Box Shield is an additional option for enforcing granular controls on content.
This idea also matches our requirements for Shared Links.
We would like to have better granularity for this setting. Currently, we can only enable public shared links for the entire BOX instance or disable it for everyone. While we do not want to grant everyone the possibility to create publicly available shared links to avoid unintentional data leaks, there might be justified use cases where password protected open links are needed.
We would like to have an option that either only Admins can create shared links or a kind of approval process before a public link can be opened.

This should be a higher priority. We should be able to restrict shared link creation to just admins, co-admins, and owners in the same way we can restrict the ability to invite collaborators.
Editors should not have the ability to create open shared links to content they do not own!
I can't understand how anyone thought it was a good idea to grant this permission to Editors.
How is it possible you can block Editors from creating additional collaborators but allow them to create Shared Links open to the world on content they do not own?
