  1. Allow the "User Activity" report to be run for a folder and all sub-folders & content within that folder

    Today, the admin may select to run the "User Activity" report for a particular folder. When run for a particular folder, the report will only filter on the contents of the selected folder, and not the contents of subfolders within. Request that the report includes the folder and all sub-folders & contents within that folder, removing the need to run the report at the enterprise level and filtering to a particular folder path from there.

  3. Make API rate limits more sophisticated, especially for large enterprises

    When working with a Box Enterprise that has tens of thousands of users, scripts designed to do things like user information syncing, group syncing, or user provisioning/deprovisioning often run into real issues with the Box API rate limits.

    Some calls (e.g. downloading or uploading a file) are clearly significantly more resource-intensive than others (e.g. getting a user’s aliases). The method Google has implemented for the Gmail API (see https://developers.google.com/gmail/api/v1/reference/quota) seems like a really great way to balance the need to protect the back-end systems against the need for increased performance for less-intensive calls. It would be nice if Box…

  4. Box CLI - need more output options for folders:items.

    Specific to "box folders:items" but probably other commands as well:

    1) If I'm asking for --csv, AND specifying the fields via --fields=, I don't need a header telling me the fields I just requested. I'd like an option to disable the header, or default disable it and make me add it back.

    2) If I'm asking for specific fields as --csv, give me just those fields. If I'm asking for --fields=id I don't want it served back to me as "folder,#", I don't want to know it's a folder. If I later do something against that ID that is not…

  5. Bulk assign metadata attributes to multiple folders/files at one time

    We were a previous heavy user of tags and our users enjoyed the ability to assign tags to multiple files at once in the old UI.

    Because they have tens of thousands of users deployed, they often have the same attribute needed to be assigned to many files.

    We are evaluatig options to assign metadata values to multiple files and/or folders in a user friendly manner. We currently offer the ability to define a Metadata Cascade Policy on a folder, which will assign a metadata template and, optionally, default metadata field values to all files within that folder structure. More information is available https://community.box.com/t5/Organizing-and-Tracking-Content/Cascading-metadata-templates-in-folders/ta-p/67801

    If this is insufficient to satisfy your use case, leave us a comment with the problem you are trying to solve and what would help you to address it.

  6. Added an event trigger for FILE.RENAME and FOLDER.RENAME for V2 webhooks

    This events would trigger v2 webhooks when an item is renamed.
