    My use/need is for powershell Box CLI, but we could also benefit from a single endpoint to get all items within a folder recursively. Trying to build the logic and wait for multiple API calls to return makes this very tiresome.
    In our use case we are trying to get count of all files in a directory. At present we have to limit to just the total overall file count. I would envision this API endpoint enabling us to see count of files _by_type_ as well.

    Same general gist as request: 39483574. But if the external user is given a url that specifies the metadata template, they can search on that metadata template.
    Not sure if this is a loophole or a workaround.

    If the same external user is given a URL that has the metadata template already specified they can then search on that one metadata template. Is this a workaround or a loophole?

    If possible this could leverage Box Edit's access to the local machine?

    OneDrive is leveraging this "new architecture", please consider investing the time in 'modernizing' the application. Not only could it improve the issue with Overlay limit, I'm guessing it might also address issues where a user pinning a folder/item to their Quick access loses visibility of Box ovelay status.
    Additionally a BIG win of this might be conveying to Box Drive users if a file/folder they are looking at is shared with others.
    Don't know how much the two are related, but OneDrive also allows shorcuts/bookmarks to be visible on the Desktop client. Another win!

    This is "doable" now, but the results are inconsistent. Sometimes a quick access link will take you to a version of the folder where you cannot see the Box Drive overlays (like file upload errors) other times you can. The inconsistency causes confusion

    This would be beneficial to help promote use of webapp instead of Box Drive where this kind of experience is native to Windows Explorer/Finder.

    We have a similar use case as the original poster.

    I would agree that this would be useful or less flexible would be to link metadata templates.

    Here's a situation that the filter on multiple would be useful
    We have "Project" and "Manufacturing Order" metadata templates

    Project would have just the identifiable number.
    Manufacturing Order template could have release status, and work location

    It would be unnecessary redundancy to include this same field on the Manufacturing Order template, but would be useful to be able to search for both "Project number" and "Released" Manufacturing orders.

    This is a feature we would love to get to, but unfortunately it is not on our short term roadmap. Please continue adding your feedback!
