  1. Require approval when sharing content with a business justification

    Current access policy allows for external collaboration with a valid business justification, but we would also like to have the admin or folder owner approve the request to share externally, before the collaboration is sent. The current design doesn't allow for any validation and could potentially lead to content being shared with a restricted audience. Once the exception is approved, the collaboration could be set.

  2. Access Control Restrictions by user

    As a administrator, I would like the ability to turn off certain Access Control Restrictions across all collaborators vs. limiting it to specific collaborator roles.

    Example:
    Download / Print Restrictions.

    we would still like users to leverage the app but, not allow them to download/print to their mobile device. Yes, the app function can be disable enterprise-wide but, we want to limit it to a specific function within the mobile app regardless of their collaborator role.

  3. Support for Regular Expression (REGEX) for Auto-Classification in Shield

    We would like the ability to support Regular Expressions (REGEX) for creating auto-classifications rules in Shield. This would greatly enhance how much we can leverage the capability

  4. Box Shield Add-on for Splunk compatibllity with jquery 3.5

    Will the 'Box Shield Add-on for Splunk' be updated to be compatible with jquery 3.5? Currently Splunk is running upgrade guidance that all apps should be and this seems to be an outlier. This is for version 1.1.1

  5. Notify user on corrupt file upload

    We should be able to notify a user when the file he just uploaded is detected by shield as corrupted.
    The notification could be sent by mail or by notification on the website, depending on the configuration given by the user.

    This feature is relly important on a legal base, because each user should have the ability to correct his own mistake.

  6. Box Shield - Request to change pop-up message when requesting reason for invitation

    The Box Shield function is configured to ask for the reason for the invitation when inviting external users.
    I would like to see a change in the wording of the pop-up when asking for the reason for the invitation.

    [Current]
    In conjunction with the pull-down display of the reason for the invitation.
    "Remove one user instead and continue" will be displayed.

    [Change Requested]
    Along with the display of the invitation reason pull-down.
    "Remove the user who is preventing the invitation from being invited instead and continue" is displayed.

    [現在]
    招待理由のプルダウンの表示と合わせて、
    "代わりに1名のユーザーを削除して続行する"と表示される

    [変更希望]
    招待理由のプルダウンの表示と合わせて、
    "代わりに招待の妨げとなっているユーザーを招待先から削除して続行する"と表示される

  7. Allow Shield List of Countries Usable for Access Policies

    There may be certain countries a Box customer may be prohibited from sharing with under any circumstance. I suggest making it possible to whitelist or blacklist entire countries by allowing Shield Lists of countries to be included in Access Policies.

  10. Search document properties in Automated Classification

    When exporting design files into PDFs, document properties are often saved alongside the files to designate the sensitivity - for instance, a document may be labeled "confidential".

    If we could search for custom terms in these document properties, we could catch some of the classifications already going on.

  11. Add additional details in the the virus detection notification email

    During this time (2022/02/28, Monday, 13:00), I received a virus detection notification email.
    When I checked the contents, the upload date by virus detection notification email is 2020/06/16 9:36:17 JST,
    Neither the target file was found in the path of the email presentation.

    I contacted MKI Box Support Desk.
    We received the following answers.

    "The virus scan seems to be rescanned accordingly based on the activity of the file, not only at the time of upload.
    The frequency of scans is determined by the number of file activity.
    It can be difficult to explain the consistency of when this notification…

    This feature is something we want to bring with Shield. The team has developed a plan for Shield to support this functionality on the backend, but the feature is not on our immediate roadmap. We will continue to build out our plans to bring this to customers as the team works on our current roadmap.

  13. Shield classification user permissions

    Request to make classification application settings specific to the classification. Currently, the setting for who can apply/remove a classification is for all classifications, but there are cases where it would be helpful that a classification to be only applied by owners and other where co-owner, or even editor would be allowed to apply certain classifications.

    Examples:
    1. A classification tied to a Shield access control rule that only owners can apply or remove
    2. A classification tied to a Shield access control rule that owner/co-owners can apply or remove
    3. A classification identifying a type of content that owners/co-owner/editors can…

  14. Make Shield Lists Accessible via API

    Shield lists are not currently editable using an API endpoint. In order to make it possible to automate adding and removing entries to lists, I suggest making it possible to create/view/edit/delete shield lists using the Box API.

  15. Limit applying a classification label to a specific user group

    I want to be able to limit the permission on a particular classification label. I have a class label that I want only a specific user group to be able to apply. There is an approval process in place (via Box Relay) for labeling content with the specific class label, and I don't want my users to be able to use that label without going through the approval process or limit it so only the admin group can apply the class label. Thanks!

  16. Make classification labels visible without selection

    Currently you must select a folder to see if it's classified. A customer of mine would prefer to see that a folder is classified without having to select it.

  17. Shield Shared Links: Password Requirement

    Passwords for public links are wonderful, however, the capability to enforce all links (even those with internal or collaborator scope) would be beneficial for users and content security. If this password requirement could be tied to classifications as an access policy, that would make it increasingly difficult for negligent or malicious actions on Box content. Currently, we can only decrease the scope available for shared links, but by requiring a password, there will be additional adoption for Box and Shield, especially within highly regulated industries that require external or public distribution of content.

  18. Import shield classification pattern values from a xls or doc

  19. I would like the access policy to have preview only functionality

    I would like the access policy to have preview only functionality.
    If only some files in a folder with editor privileges can be set to preview, there is no need to create a separate folder.

  20. If the access policy restricts download and printing, Excel files cannot be co-edited with MS Excel Online

    Excel files cannot be co-edited in MS Excel Online if the access policy restricts downloading and printing.
    One of the purposes of using Excel Online is co-editing.
    I would like to be able to co-edit in a situation where downloads are restricted.
