Provide read-only scope for user information
I'd like to provide our central identity management team a way to tell whether or not a given Box user has a > 0 byte usage before they delete the user's account (for example, as someone leaves our organization). I'd like to give them read-only API access to https://api.box.com/2.0/users, without giving them any additional access. Support tells me that this isn't currently possible. It'd be nice if it was--this could be useful for a number of other uses, too, such as reporting.0 votes
Create an API Call to allow enterprises to confirm if consumer accounts already exist for emails being queried.0 votesnot planned · kyagen responded
We don’t offer an API endpoint for these types of queries today, so it’s not possible to add.
When you create a user that already exists, you get a 409 error code returned – user already exists. Is this sufficient?
GET invite rejection event
There is collaboration invite event (COLLABORATION_ACCEPT), but we want to GET rejection invite event as well.0 votes
Option to select a folder_id other than 0 (the user's root folder) within the Move Owned Items API.
As a large company, we aim to fully automate the deprovisioning of users using Box Platform.
We would like an option within the Move Owned Items API (https://developer.box.com/v2.0/reference#move-folder-into-another-users-folder) to select a destination location other than 0 (all files).
The goal would be to automate this process and allow folders and files to be moved within an existing folder rather than at the root level.0 votes
Support alternate URL's for end-users who block Box
Some external clients are blocking *box.com and as a result can't use the app built on Box platform.0 votes
Thank you for the suggestion. We understand your concerns and suggest your client to review our security posture and policies.
Add Managed Domains list to API Endpoint
We would like to be able to make an API call to retrieve the list of managed domains for or Enterprise. We can only do this from the Admin Console today.0 votes

We do not plan to suppress these updates. However, we will reconsider if we get additional feedback from other users.
Folder Level App Integration in Developer Console
Is there any plan to allow developers to give folder access to Web App integrations without having to request a special permission from Box?
In the current process, Developers can enable the context menu for folders to present integration features, but to do so they must contact Box first. "Send a request to Box for pre-approval to build a folder-level integration."
We would like the ability to add folder level integrations via the Developer Console without having to contact Box Support.0 votes
Thanks for the feedback. We don’t have anything meaningful to share at the moment, but will let you know if and when that changes.
Add API for CORS Domains
With the introduction of the UI Elements, managing CORS domains has been really important for developers who create third party apps that are then used across many domains owned by their customers. This gets unwieldy to manage manually.0 votes
Ability to actually create a Box application via the content API without having to login to the developer portal0 votes
Good feedback, although, due to other priorities we will likely not be getting to this anytime soon.
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.0 votesnot planned · tosin responded
Our customers tend to have different requirements for an offline feature. We’ll monitor demand and re-evaluate.
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.0 votes
Thank you for the feedback! We’ll add this to our backlog, and get back when we have further updates.
NPM Package for Box Preview
Develop and support an NPM package for Box Preview, which will allow Box customers to receive all future updates to the Preview SDK without intervention on their part.0 votes
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.0 votes
Trigger the creation of Exportable reports in the Admin Console via the API (LH, Shared Links, Collaborations, User Stats, etc.)0 votes
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
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.0 votes
