  1. Forward-Looking Legal Hold / Indefinite Date Range Until Lifted / Optional End Date for Holds

    User Story: I want to put a custodian on Legal Hold retroactively (which is already possible in Legal Holds) AND for all activity (content, etc.) going forward (aka that they continue to add in a forward-looking manner) until the hold is lifted.TL;DR - Make the 'End Date' field Optional (just like the Start Date is already).

    Every file version under retention is immutable. The customer can also use the event stream to understand what version their users and external users accessed.

  4. Provide a FILE.EDIT Webhook to trigger events in the event of a user editing a file.

    We have most Webhooks available, but it seems that it would be advantageous to be able to trigger a process based on someone editing a file - such as locking and notifications etc.

  10. Allow administrative "As-User' calls to bypass steps that require user intervention, such as accepting Custom Terms of Service.

    As-User calls made by an admin, on behalf of the user, should not require any end user interaction to work. This supports API driven administration prior to making Box available to end users, which is common when deploying at scale or performing data migrations.In particular, non-acceptance of Custom Terms of Service and Uncompleted Email Verification currently cause such calls to fail until the end user takes action to complete them. makes the migration process overly complex.

    Great feedback. Currently, there is no Email Verification required today for app users, and we do have a Terms of Service API: developer.box.com/reference#terms-of-service-object

  11. Exempt New Box View service account from the "Restrict Content Creation" setting

    If an enterprise admin has enabled "Restrict Content Creation" for their enterprise (under Admin Console > Enterprise Settings > Content & Sharing), only Admins and Co-Admins are able to create folders and files in the All Files location. This restriction also applies to the service account associated with New Box View apps. This means that if an admin wants to keep "Restrict Content Creation" enabled, they cannot use the New Box View with the same enterprise. The New Box View service account cannot be made a Co-Admin. The "Restrict Content Creation" flag also limits this user from owning any root-level…

    Try using Service Accounts. It’s similar to what New Box View (App Token Apps) offer except that they manage the folders where they upload the content to. You would have to manage how they redistribute the content across different folders in their service account.

  12. Templates - Raise Max. Templates per EID to More than 50

    EIDs are currently limited to a max of 50 Metadata Templates. This request is to significantly raise the limit of the total number of Metadata Templates per EID.

    We have now raised the limit to 500 templates per enterprise.

  13. Provide a way to delete or rename (API name) a metadata key

    Once a mistake is made when creating a metadata template or key there is no way to delete the content. This poses a serious issue for developers especially if their code manages multiple EIDs. If a mistake is made, application code must be altered which is more difficult than being able to delete a key.Having the ability to create templates via the API is not a real solution as one could always make a mistake in their template creation code.

  18. Add "FOLDER.TRASHED" event trigger to Webhooks v2

    The existing event trigger "FOLDER.DELETED" only triggers a notification when a folder is permanently removed (deleted from Trash). Currently, there is no option to receive a webhook notification if a folder is sent to the trash. "FOLDER.MOVE" does not capture this action either.
