  1. 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…

  2. Display service account login in JWT app configuration console.

    Request:
    It would be really helpful if the service account login were displayed on the JWT app configuration page. This would make it easy to identify the login without having to run a separate script and would lower the barrier to entry for developing unprivileged BOX JWT apps.

    Background:
    We are making heavy use of service accounts to promote development server/automation-friendly Box apps. Our development model, outlined here (https://github.com/box-community/sample-jwt-app-primer) involves inviting low-privilege service accounts to collaborate on folders. This enables programatic access to Box files on a selective basis.

    A major pain point is identifying the login associated…

  5. Cleanup and Enhance the file/folder webhook events to cover all the happy paths (new file, new file version, restore previous version)

    As a Box Application Developer I want to be able to receive a unique, webhook events for the following scenarios:

    1. User uploads new file (brand new binary object placed into a Box Folder) - Folder based event (exists: FILE.UPLOADED)
    2. User uploads a new file version - File AND Folder based event (e.g. FILE_NEW.VERSION)
    3. User restores a previous file version - File AND Folder based event (e.g. FILE_RESTORE.VERSION)

    As the owner of an enterprise application that has deep integration in the BOX platform, it is surprising that I have no way to use the Webhooks to monitor files…

  6. Allow Enterprise Event API Endpoint to access 7yrs worth of data to match the activity reports provided by the web app

    Enterprise Events API endpoint only allows retrieval of events up to one year back. Activity reports in Box go back 7 yrs. Events contain a lot more useful data than activity reports so the request is to match the retention period between the two so the same amount of data can be collected via the API or web application.

  7. Improve annotations for Box Previewer UI element

    One of the main feature of our proof-of-concept utilizes Box’s concept of collaborations. We want to demonstrate beyond the capability of the basic file/folder sharing by utilizing the Box Previewer UI element and enabling the annotation feature. The annotation is such a great feature to enhance business and client relationship in the digital space. We implemented this feature however we found there are some challenges and we are hoping Box can help us find a solution to create a better experience.

    1. We were able to activate the annotation but only within app users. Both our employee entities and customer…

  8. Improve management of pending invitations via API

    As we continue to build and customize the collaboration mechanism we found it difficult to manage pending invitations. When calling your API api.box.com/2.0/folders<folder_id>/collaborations it returns approved collaborators in the “accessible_by” object but when it return PENDING collaborators the “accessible_by” object is null, but there’s status “pending” on this collaborator. We would imagine it would capture the email address of that pending collaborator. Seeing this is capable in your public domain to show the pending collaborator with an email address would be very useful to create modules to manage pending collaborators (e.g. resending the invitation, update the email address, etc..).

    The…

  9. API technical and display name

    In metadata template designer: As in the API technical and display name are saved, at least the display name has to be changeable while the technical name has to be presented as a valuable information.

  11. API to sync folders for users.

    If we could sync folders directly through our internal web app it would cut several steps out of user workflows. I would love to put a sync slider next to the job line so they could sync directly from this screen.

    Specifically, I am talking about leveraging the tools via APIs. So having an API we could leverage to sync folders down for users.

  12. "Scopes enabled by request" in the app authorization page

    Would like the "scopes enabled by request" (https://developer.box.com/docs/scopes#section-scopes-enabled-by-request) which have been enabled on their app to be listed in the app authorization or in the configuration page for their app in the dev console.

  13. Enhance and support the Box Embed Widget for mobile browsers.

    We outsource hosting and presenting documents to Box. We allow our users to upload documents in our app and we upload them to Box via API. Later on, when users want to view the file, we ask the Box API for an iframe URL and embed it in our app. So, in the end, no one is logged in to any box applications, because we use the API under the hood.

  14. Add Ability to Suppress Collaboration Emails via API

    Hello

    At Catalytic, we are deeply integrated with Box and 100% api driven. Currently when creating folders and adding collaborators via API, we are UNABLE to suppress the Box email notification.

    This is causing confusions with our users as we are sending a Catalytic Branded email as well.

  15. Open Box Notes API for logging

    The idea here is to use a box note as a log which could be updated both by humans and an automated api.

    My use case for the api would basically be "append a line" to the box note.

  19. api

    Unified Upload API (File and Metadata) - Having a single API call to upload a file (or file(s)) with associated metadata would provide large improvements in error avoidance and development logic. Currently, this process must be completed with multiple API calls, which leaves space for errors and sullies the user experience.

  20. Custom notifications using Box API

    Using Box API there is no way to create custom user notifications. It might be helpful to send some information to the customer that some documents have been moved, imported, etc. A user can monitor the folder but this would be a valuable extension for the API for platform developers.
