  1. Add offline functionality to iOS SDK

    Offline functionality is already available through the Box for iOS app but it's built on the app level.

    Developers are interested in using the same logic used by Box instead of writing their own.

    Our customers tend to have different requirements for an offline feature. We’ll monitor demand and re-evaluate.

  2. Allow watermarking to reveal External ID, as opposed to randomly generated App User Email

    This would connect the viewer to a legal obligation through the document experience.

  3. Picker: Allow to be configured for files only or folders only

    Connections uses picker in different contexts.

    For files: allow only file selection, but still allow nav down folder tree. Remove the 'add file' button.

    For folders: Allow only folder selection, do not show files. Do not show add files or all files button.

  5. The ability to pass unique request ID to each service request to assist with debugging

    We want to pass a unique request ID to Box so we can easily track and debug any requests that fail within their application.

  7. You cannot get trashed versions via the API or deleted trashed versions

    While you can GET and permanently delete FILES & FOLDERS via the API by interacting with TRASH, you cannot do so for FILE VERSIONS, e.g. GET/DELETE
    https://api.box.com/2.0/files/<fileID>/versions/<versionID>/trash

  8. Expose representation via API to allow for companies to upload representations after conversions

    We receive video footage from various sources in proprietary formats. We use an external agency to convert the formats to a neutral MP4 video format. Rather than loading this back into Box as a new file, we want to load it against the original source file as a mp4 representation which can then be viewed in the Web App as mp4 video.

  9. Additional Scopes

    We have white labelled Box into a ServiceNow product.

    The service account at the moment creates the structure for every case that is populated.

    From a security perspective, we would like the service account to create content and maintain folder structures but not be able to delete or read content. The best we have at the moment is the Uploader Role which would then allow the creation of sub folders but it means that e have to:


    1. Create the base folder

    2. Assign a new owner to the folder

    3. Change the Service Account to an Uploader

    4. Create sub folders.

    At this…

  10. View the filepath of a file/folder in the Enterprise Event stream.

    Our Security team is interested in monitoring confidential files (Red CCI), and to do so we need to be able to track the filepath associated with actions taken on content.

  12. File Picker: Add file preview pane to file picker widget.

    We are using the file picker widget in a custom app. We are requesting the addition of a preview pane to the file picker widget so our end users can get a preview of files they are potentially adding.

  13. Make a Custom Action app available to managed users only

    Create a public app that is available to members of the enterprise only. We would like to create a custom app that allows users to launch a Record Manager app that's tied to the main enterprise record software.

    Currently Box only allows this to be available as a public app, which we do not want to do. We prefer to limit this app to be available to managed users of this EID only.

  14. Pass Basic Auth (Authorization Header) to Client Callback URL & Preliminary Callback URL when Both are Present

    Using an API-based web app integration, from the "More" menu in the web app, if developer requires basic auth to complete the request, authorization header is only passed to the Preliminary Callback URL and never the Client Callback URL - even if Client Callback is the only URL present.

    Expected Behavior:
    Allowing the developer to choose whether basic auth is required would imply that we would always pass the Authorization header with our requests so they can validate.

  16. Expose Box Server Time for setting JWT exp claim within expected values

    Currently, there are a few different places that developers can use to sync the time of their requests which can lead to some confusion/issues with properly setting the exp claim when generating a JWT assertion.

    For example, pool.ntp.org offers up a time that's ~25 seconds ahead of epochconverter.com (where support currently suggests that folks sync their time from).

    Exposing the "current timestamp" somehow, or syncing up with a framework that allows users to be in sync with Box time will allow for fewer questions/issues with the JWT claims process.

  17. File Picker: Custom file picker location default

    When using the file picker from within our application, the User has already selected a Customer to process and I have a folder ID for that Customer. I would like them to be directed directly to this folder when they log into Box through our application.

  18. iOS Preview SDK should provide listeners for events like the Content Preview UI kit.

    The events for the JS Content Preview UI kit can be found here, https://developer.box.com/docs/file-types-events. It would be beneficial to have similar events to have emitters within the iOS preview SDK.

  19. 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.
