  1. Shield Classifications Available for Certain Folders Only

    Currently, if you create a classification label it will be available to apply to any folder or file. The ask is for the option to make the classification label available to apply in only certain folders.

    An example of a use case is for an ITAR classification label - users should only apply this label to content in a contained ITAR folder. While in other folders they should not see the option to apply this label in the dropdown.

    Auto classification policies currently has a similar feature, 'Folder Criteria'. For the classification labels, it would be great to have a…

  2. Option to Display Warning Message to Users in Access Policy Monitoring Mode

    It would be great to allow admins the option to display a "warning message" to users if they attempt an action that is in violation to the policy when the policy is in monitoring mode. Understanding that monitoring doesn't prevent the user from taking the action, it would still be a good tool for soft launching access policies if the option to display a message was available.

  3. after upload, Apply classification based on the parent folder classification, not the parent,... parent folder

    • if you apply classification to a folder A all subfolder will be classified : Good
    • You can remove that classificaiton to a subfolder B of the folder A : good
    • if you upload a file to folderB , that file will be classified same as the Folder A (the parent parent folder) : Bad

    This doesn't really make sense and create a new layer of waterfall access right but based on the classification this time. Which create duplicate in other areas and make it really hard for our employee to use classification.

    Note that this also applied to automatically generated…

  5. The BoxShield "Sign Request Restrictions" feature should be improved so that signature PDF and Log files can be generated.

     In the BoxShield "Restrict BoxSign Requests" function, by selecting Access Policy > Security Control > Restrict External Collaboration > [Existing and New External Collaboration], signatures can be made, but no signature PDF or Log file is generated.
     Please improve so that signature PDF and Log files can be generated normally when signing.

    <Japanese>
     BoxShield「BoxSignリクエストの制限」機能にて、アクセスポリシー>セキュリティコントロール>外部コラボレーションの制限>[既存および新規の外部コラボレーション]選択によって、署名はできるが署名PDF・Logファイルは生成されない。
     署名した際に、普通に署名PDFおよびLogファイルが生成できるよう改善してほしい。

  6. File version on Shield Alert

    I would like to have the actual file version shown in the Shield Dashboard Alert ID. Currently it shows when the file is uploaded but does not show the file version. If the version is shown, it would be much easier to check the file.

  8. Ability to customize Box Shield Malware scan messages

    Ability to customize the email alerts that are sent for Box Shield Malware scan when detected. Would like the ability to customize the email alerts that are sent to end users when malware is detected on content uploaded.

    Use Case: Customized messaging allows the customer to provide instructions or further details on what users need to do next when they receive the alert. Customer wants to notify end users on the internal process to ensure that the proper steps are taken.

    When content with a Box Shield Classification tag is downloaded and re-uploaded, inherit same Classification label.

    Associate metadata or some other code with the folder/file that's downloaded so that when it's re-uploaded, it inherits/maintains the same Classification Tag.

  19. Restrict users to only some Shield label

    Currently you can choose which users can put Shield label to contents.
    However, this setting is for the whole tenant but I would like to set different types of users to some Shield label that does not apply to all the Shield labels.

  20. Trigger rescan for Auto-Classification when adding new classifications

    We did not implement Box Shield immediately upon standing up our new environment. After over 1TB of data was uploaded, leadership wanted us to implement new auto-classifications. There is currently no way to force a rescan of all existing documents to apply those new classifications. Going into each folder and copy/pasting, moving, or editing each file is impractical for tens of thousands of uploaded files. Would like a simple way to trigger the rescan without having to engage for a consulting project for box.com to create custom scripts to update the classifications.
