Custom app to pull Access Stats on files/folders without admin privileges
Goal: Obtain access statistics on files/folders via custom app with no admin privileges
We have an enterprise app that manages one of our Box folders - i.e. the app is owner of the folder while most collaborators are just editors and some co-owners. Moreover, we have the 'hidden collaborators' setting enabled, which means that only owner and co-owners can view 'Access stats' in the browser. For other collaborators (being Editors) to view access stats, we would then pull the stats via the Box API - e.g. using the events endpoint. With our enterprise Box instance, however, we do not have admin privileges and cannot get this. This means we cannot pull access statistics on the various files and folders via the events endpoint with our app.
It would be very nice if
A) Access statistics could be available for editors on a folder with 'hidden collaborator' setting enabled.. or
B) The events endpoint is made available for apps with no admin-privileges.. or
C) An actual 'access stat' endpoint is made available (preferably with the python SDK)
