  1. Custom apps with restricted folder access

    We want to create a custom app where access is restricted to certain folders only.
    Downscoping is not the best solution.
    JWT key pairs are at risk of leaking.
    The key pair itself needs to restricted access to only specific folders.

  2. Request for resolving the problem of retrieving group memberships

    I wish the following problem will be fixed :
    We are able to see the issue when retrieving group membership datas if the group have multiple users having the same name and get membership with multiple offset.
    For example, there are two users having the same name and both of users is a member of the group. If we request all of membership for the group with multiple offset, the endpoint of group may only include one of both, not include another user in the response.

    I have submitted this incident to Box support ticket(#2387523), and received an answer that…

  3. Alternative Endpoints for API calls

    In some regions, using the default endpoint box.com doesn't work or works really slowly. Therefore, box offers different endpoints for different regions. For China, this is http://boxcn.net or http://boxenterprise.net
    That's great!

    However, those endpoints can only be used within the box web app.
    The only available box API to download a file is https://api.box.com/2.0/files/:file_id/content/ respectively https://api.box.com/2.0/zip_downloads/ to download multiple files as a zip, which generates a download URL starting with dl.boxcloud.com.
    As a result, the generated download URL delivers very slow downloads or does not work at all in some regions of the world.

    Therefore, I request that a possibility…

  5. Ability to retrieve the number of files for each folder through API

    The Box API allows users to get a list of the files contained in a folder, but it does not provide a direct way to get the number of files per folder, so we would like to provide a way to get the number of files.

  6. Request refresh token update again

    OAuth2 refresh token update can be performed only once.
    * Because the previous refresh token becomes invalid immediately.
    However, there are unfortunate cases where a network disconnection occurs and the client is unable to obtain the refresh token.
    Therefore, we would like to change the behavior so that the refresh token update can be requested again only for a short time.
    Also, please publish the ping endpoint to a third-party that can check the communication with the Box server. (Box Drive is already using)

  7. Better support for developer API

    Insufficient support available for developer tools. Posted to forums yielded zero responses, how would you like to engage your platform?

    all API calls yield useless error with no documentation:

  9. Available get to 'My Collections' other than favorites via API

    In 3rd-party app, My Collection is a very good idea as a way to provide quick access to users.
    But, it can only take favorites.
    Please let me get 'My Collections' other than favorites.

    https://developer.box.com/reference/get-collections/
    Currently, only the favorites collection is supported.

  10. Add the service name that locked file to the Lock property

    There is a issue that Box Drive and other third party apps can open files that are being edited in Office Online.
    When I am editing a file in Office Online, the user who is editing the file becomes me, so I can edit the file regardless of whether it is locked.
    This issue can be solved if we know the name of the service that did the locking.
    Therefore, please add the service ID/name that locked file to the Get File API response.

  11. 【can_view_path】How the path looks when an item is moved to the trash

    When using canviewpath, the collaborator sees a folder on the screen with no contents that should have been moved to the trash.
    This has to do with the collaboration ID.

    This is because even if you delete an item, the collaboration ID remains and is needed to restore the item.

    Although the actual contents cannot be accessed, the fact that the folder can be accessed and the folder name can be confirmed is considered a serious incident by companies with strict security requirements, and an early response is required.
    Is it possible to change the functionality on a…

  12. Java SDK Readtimeout setting

    Right now in order to not have issues with client applications, we are setting the ConnectionTimeout=60 seconds, and ReadTimeout = 60 seconds.

    In our applications we are uploading/downloading files, and doing Searches. So we need the higher readtimeout for those operations as it will take some time for the API's to respond, especially in the afternoons EST.

    We would like to be able to set the readtimeouts depending on the exact API being called.

    ie BoxFile.getInfo() should have a much lower readtimeout than BoxFile.download()

  13. Provide an Endpoint to Manage Public/Private Key Pair

    To retire and generate a new JWT application's public/private key pair, manual intervention is needed by both the Developer Application owner and the Box Admin. It is very common to require periodic rotation of RSA keys and is often required by internal security standards.

  14. file preview, upload and download api

    Right now we are missing information about the number of times a file has been downloaded or previewed using the API endpoint 'get file information' https://developer.box.com/reference/get-files-id/
    We can only access this info through the admin console reports. It would be useful to access this info directly using the API

  15. Addition an event trigger for TASK.CREATE, COMPLETE, ACCEPT and REJECT for V2 webhooks

    V2 Webhook does not have a Webhook for Task operations.
    This makes it difficult to notify the next application of the completion of a task.

    Please add webhooks for Task created, completed, accepted, and rejected.

  16. Add tasks to main API

    I am trying to use the tasks feature as a method of notifying our automation software that it has work to do via your API. However, I can find no method for a user to list all their tasks. Your web app has an undefined endpoint:xxxxxx.app.box.com/app-api/tasks/inbox?limit=10&taskcollaboratorrole=ASSIGNEE&taskstatus=INPROGRESS,NOT_STARTED

    Can this be added to the main API?

  18. display request for Try this API

    In the API reference Try this API displays Response Headers and Response Body. It would be nice if it also displayed the request URL and maybe request headers and body depending on HTTP type.

  19. Unable to see external items via API

    Currently the API works differently than the UI. in the UI a user can see files/folders that were shared with them from an external (to the org) account, however, when trying to query for the visible items via the API these do not show.
    In addition - if you try to get the details of specific items shared by an external user you get an error when using the API, which is unfortunate since this causes 2 classes of behavior that are inconsistent between the UI and the API.

  20. Would like the ability to set the Data Residency Zone via REST API and SDK

    It would be very beneficial for my organization if we could get a handle to the Data Residency Zone via REST API and Java SDK. We are currently incorporating all the "Freemium" accounts that were created before we set the domains that weren't allowed to create as a free user. It would be nice to be able to set their data zone programmatically based on information we gather from our Active Directory as we incorporate them.
