  3. extend external collaborators

    Our internal policy expires external collaborators after 90 days. We have a few folders where we have over 400 external collaborators where we would like to maintain access beyond 90 days Is it possible to programmatically extend access to the users in those folders.

  6. Set enterprise settings via api

    We have an open risk item on the Box platform due to lack of controls on change management.
    Specifically:
    Box console settings must be manually performed across dev, test and production environments.
    Lack of automated mechanisms to maintain consistency with the settings across the environments may allow weaknesses in lower environments (dev/test) to be exploited to exfiltrate data or modify data or inconsistencies between functionality tested in lower environments and what is configured in prod.
    We would like the ability to be able to configure the settings via API so we can build environment management into out CICD pipeline. We…

  7. Granular control of API calls within UI elements

    Mitie use Box platform to surface payslips to their employees. For this they use a Box UI element. As they analyse their API consumption they feel that the UI elements are using a lot of API calls - more than planned for and they are worried this will impact the price of their engagement come renewal. One thing in particular they have noticed is that when a user previews a document, the UI elements pre-fetches what looks like the next five documents, presumably for performance reasons. Since their users only every preview one document (the current months payslip) they are…

  9. Unique delivery of webhooks

    We need a unique delivery of webhooks for each file trigger event. Currently, for trigger FILE.UPLOADED we get multiple webhook calls.

  10. I want to be able to have the thumbnail urls returned in the metadata search results.

    When doing a metadata search, returning the thumbnail url (or the representation template url) with each entry in the results will make it so that multiple API calls to get the thumbnail url for each entry after the search is not required.

  11. Bulk API support

    It would be great if we have a bulk API option. I would like to pass in the list of entity ids(could be files, folders users etc) and get back the results. This will reduce the number of api calls we do to get all the information.

    We try to manage client's storage accounts and the main problem is with rate limiting for a large clients.

    Implementation can vary, either limit the response size or provide an ack id and developers can poll for the id and get the data back once the api is ready to spit out the…

    Thank you for the suggestion. This is an interesting idea but not one we currently have on the roadmap. In the mean time, you can apply techniques such as caching (i.e. fetch what you need once for a session and keep it in local storage) to reduce round-trips, and the use the ?fields query string parameter to request only the minimal set of fields you need, which can reduce API response times.

  12. Remove 100 "to_user_ids" limit of WebhookV1.

    With webhook V1, we have the upper bound of 100 users in "touserids" field for each notification, so when a webhook has too many recipients (that is, more than 100 users are to be set in "touserids" field), we send multiple webhook notification for a single event so "touserids" is kept within 100 users for each notification.

    For e.g. if an upload event was to trigger notification to 1000 recipients, we send 10 webhook notifications to the notification url with 100 users embedded in "touserids" field of each notification.

    This causes duplicate…

  13. Single API call to delete user and transfer folders for that user

    Before deleting a user from box system we can transfer the root folder from one user account to
    another.
    Once the root folder is transferred only then delete API must be triggered.
    So in all, the delete operation will have to call two API one to transfer and another to delete.

    But as the transfer API call will return synchronously.
    For users with a large number of files and folders, this means the call could take minutes or hours to return.

    So the delete operation will be in pending state until we receive the transfer API response.

    Does box now…

  14. box-ui-elements content-explorer needs real thumbnails

    The Content Explorer element needs at least the option to use actual
    file thumbnails rather than the generic ones based on file type
    currently shown. Otherwise browsing large collections of images and
    videos is very cumbersome to the point of not even being worthwhile. The
    API appears to have a thumbnail/representation endpoint so using it from
    content-explorer seems like a no-brainer.

  16. Multi-file select for Upload UI Element when browsing device

    For the Upload UI Element, when a user chooses 'browse your device,' we expect users to be able to select more than one file. This is an issue for the process we are building in our Document Vault.

    We don’t currently plan to provide such an API, however please leave a comment if you have more information about how this would be used. In the interim, you can identify all of a user’s collaborations by requesting items in the user’s root folder (id = 0) and filtering out those where the owned_by user is the current user. This would require an additional API call for each item to get the collaboration id, but if you are only interested in knowing which items re collaborated versus owned by the user, it may be sufficient for your purposes.

  19. View and configure enterprise webhooks in the UI

    Provide a UI where we can see the webhooks that have been created across our enterprise applications. We have had some webhooks deleted because of users deleting folders or webhooks. Also, we have a case where a webhook stopped triggering. After calling the 'list all webhooks' api, we don't see that webhook created. No one has deleted it so it's difficult to understand what happened to this webhook trigger.
