  1. 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.

  2. 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…

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.
