  2. "Move Owned Items" API call fails for users with a large amount of content.

    We aim to fully automate the deprovisioning of users using Box Platform. This normally involves transferring content the user owned to their manager or another service account. For users who own large amounts of content this is challenging (even via the UI), and not possible at all using API.

    This is available in the API. Still working on bringing this capability in to the admin experience!

  4. Unable to Retrieve Collaborator Email Address for a non-Registered Collaborator

    From the Developer:Steps to reproduce: 1) Create a collaboration to a folder with email, that not already registered in Box.com. 2) Create a request via Java SDK to get collaborations from this folder. Response like this will be returned: {"totalcount":1,"entries":[ {"type":"collaboration", "id":"987654321", "createdby":{"type":"user","id":"23421234","name":"xxx","login":"xxx@xxx.xxx"}, "createdat":"2016-09-05T07:18:42-07:00", "modifiedat":"2016-09-05T07:18:42-07:00", "expiresat":null, "status":"pending", "accessibleby":null, "role":"editor", "acknowledgedat":null, "item":{"type":"folder","id":"123456","sequenceid":"0","etag":"0","name":"FolderToCollaborate"}} ]} 'AccessibleBy' is null. So we don't receive an information about collaboration, for example email. But if user with this email registered in box, we receive information about it, like this: ... "status":"accepted", "accessible_by":{"type":"user","id":"1233445678","name":"Yyy .","login":"yyy@yyy.yyy"}, "role":"viewer", ...…

  5. Disable 'Upload via Email' Admin Setting Globally

    Currently, the 'Upload via Email' setting (that's shown on the Folder Settings page) is always enabled, and admins have no way of disabling this setting globally in their instance.REQUEST: Add a new option to Admin Console -> Enterprise Settings -> Security -> Uploads that gives Admins the ability to disable this setting/option globally.

  6. Zip Files File Viewer

    Request: Viewer to just show the files that are part of the zip.

    Hope that makes sense.

  10. An administrator or application, with appropriate permission, should be able to make any arbitrary API call

    An administrator or application, with appropriate permission, should be able to make any arbitrary API call (subject to enterprise setting restrictions) for any object or user in the Box enterprise. As an example, forcing a developer to find a folder, collaborate the running user (often using an as-user call on behalf of the folder owner), uploading a file, and then remove that running user is complicated, error prone, and wasteful.

    In ECM or platform scenarios in which a large number of files are created, they are often referenced by an id value, rather than something mutable like a name or…

    Large Folder support will simplify the architecture. You still will need to collab the service account into the content.

    We updated the API recently to allow extending collaborations.

  17. "Move User's Folder" - Add Unique Value (Email) to Name of Newly-Created Folder

    When using the 'Move User's Folder' API call, Box will automatically move all the specified user's owned content into a newly-created folder in the target location named "[DisplayName]'s Files and Folders". The issue is that in large organizations, displaynames are not unique at all, which makes these folders hard to identify. REQUEST: Add email address (which is a unique identifier in most organizations) to the name of the automatically-created folder to make the name something like: "[DisplayName] ([emailaddress])'s Files and Folders"
