UW-Madison Box - Box API
If you are considering developing a Custom Application for use with the UW-Madison Box service there are a few things you need to know.
Before you get started
- Client-side Oauth 2.0 authentication is currently your only option. It is also one of the easiest ways to authenticate a user with the Box API. This authentication type does not require approval from the UW-Madison Box Team but does require end-user action/authentication.
- Custom development of Enterprise Integrations that have access to all UW-Madison Box users and groups will not be approved for use with the service.
- JWT Authentication (Server Authentication) requires either a Service Account or App User which are not offered with the UW-Madison Box service.
- App Tokens are really intended for use with Box View applications. App Tokens work with Service Accounts which are not available as part of the UW-Madison Box service.
Not Currently Available
- Developer Sandboxes
- Box Skills
- Service Accounts
- App User Licenses
