  1. Add Linux installer packages for Box CLI

    Testing out the Box CLI and request official Linux support for Ubuntu or RHEL. Would like an easy install via apt-get or Yum.

  2. Populate accessible_by field in get collaborations

    When managing collaborators, the end user needs to see who they have sent invitations to, even if those invitations have not yet been accepted and the other user has not created a box account. The call to get collaborations on a file or folder returns accessible_by: null for pending collaboration requests, essentially hiding the details of the pending requests and making it impossible to display those details to a user in a custom app. This data is definitely available because this feature exists in the main Box.com interface, but has not been exposed to the APIs yet.

  4. python installation instructions dont work

    This command
    `pip install boxsdk[jwt]`
    outputs
    `no matches found: boxsdk[jwt]`

    It would be good if you updated your python sdb installation instructions.

  5. Enhance API for group membership search

    Current implementation of user group membership search is very inefficient.
    both
    api.box.com/2.0/groups/GROUP_ID/memberships
    and
    api.box.com/2.0/users/USER_ID/memberships

    Right now we have to search for membershipId for given groupId and userId .
    Our customers have thousands of groups and users.

    Ideally we should fetch membership info like
    GET api.box.com/2.0/group_memberships?groupId=<id>&userId=<id>

  7. Allow multi-select of files to download from Content Explorer UI element

    Our use case is using Content Explorer to allow users to interact with content in Box. If a user wants to download multiple files via Content Explorer, they either have to download one-by-one, or launch the Content Picker UI element and identify their files again. If Content Explorer supported either multi-select or a checkbox multiple select, users could then download their files with one click.

    Specific business process: when working with insurance claims, adjusters regularly need to find and download several images to share with another insurance company to process the claim. Out of 100+ images in the claims folder,…

  8. Add Python code example

    On page https://developer.box.com/docs/work-with-users
    It would be super-helpful to have a Python example for Generate a User Access Token.
    I've had a tough time finding the right Python call to use for App Users for getting an access token.

  9. Clarify Python example

    On page https://developer.box.com/docs/work-with-users
    Creating a new App User, Python.
    Should specify login=None for clarity in create_user() call. Also add
    # Specify login=None to indicate you are creating an App User.

  10. Users without cell phones

    I am attempting to build a Box app. In the app configuration pages, when I try to generate a public private keypair, I am required to enable two factor authentication. I don't have a cell phone, so when I attempt to enable, a code is sent to my land line and summarily vaporizes. So I can't enable two factor, I can't generate public/private key pair - summarily inconvenienced (to be nice). I need to use JWT. OAuth is not an option. In summary, two factor without a cell phone???????? Developers missed a scenario. Time to fix it.

  15. Make source.parent.name to include all of path

    source.parent.name show just folder name.

    For example, if the collaborator folder is A and it lcates “All files/A”. the customer get api.box.com/2.0/events?stream_type=admin_lo..,

    source/parent/name just show A. This behavior make the user not to find the folder easily.
    It should be shown “All files/A”

  16. 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.

  17. 409

    On a 409 Name Conflict exception, the response does not contain the ID of the group in conflict, requiring the use of another API call to get the ID of the group with that name. Typically we recommend trying to find the group first, if the group is likely to have been created, but in the instance it is not, then 2 calls are, once again, necessary.

    We have also seen instances where the group name search is not returning a valid result, and the logic can never find, nor create the group, causing a critical failure in the logic.

  18. Improve CORS whitelist wildcard support

    I would love to be able to use wildcards in CORS with a little more specificity. In particular, for review apps on Heroku, you will have a url that is auto-generated for each pull request, so something like http://my-app-dev-pr-523.herokuapp.com. I would like to be able to add http://my-app-dev-pr*.herokuapp.com to the CORS list but it currently flags that is an improper URL so I have to do the much more broad (less secure) http://*.herokuapp.com

  20. Rollback option when db crash

    After creating folder or uploading files into box there will be chance of occuring backend database crash or lose connection between datasource . In this case we should roll back our transaction(like revert folder creation or file upload).
