Box

DESCRIPTION:  Box is a cloud provider operating from www.box.com.  Authorization for your Box account is entered when you create your Box system.

PREPARING YOUR BOX ACCOUNT:  Ensure that Cloud FastPath is an available application.  To do this:

  1. Log into the Box Admin Console and select Apps from the sidebar:
  2. Scroll down to the bottom of the page where Individual Application Controls are listed.
  3. Expand the Filters menu on the right and deselect “Featured Apps.”  Click Apply.
  4. Enter Cloud FastPath in the search box to list the CFP app.  Verify that it is Available.
  5. If it is Disabled, click on Disabled and select Available.

In the rare event that your Box account configuration requires a key, that key is lqcdphpp6yqe8n96jq3t7g8rtcen4iuu.  You will need to contact your Box account representative to add it to your account.

NOTE:  Locking your files with the Box “lock” feature will NOT prevent them from being overwritten if you transfer a newer version of the same file into Box.  Likewise, it will not prevent those files from being copied from Box to another destination.  The reason for this is that when you set up a Box job in Cloud FastPath, you provide your Box login credentials.  Locking is intended as a mechanism that prevents other users from updating or downloading the file, but still gives full read/write access to the file’s owner (i.e., the logged in user).

Box Note files will be exported to .docx files by default.  Box bookmarks, or links, are not files and are not transferred. Additionally, pictures embedded in Box Note files via Box links are not supported.

Fields:

The Box system has no system-specific fields to complete.

Target Node Configuration – Advanced Box Fields

INCLUDE SHARED FOLDERS If this option is selected, you will see shared folders in the file chooser that are shared with, but not owned by, the selected account.

Migrate Box Notes in Native Format Migrate Box Notes in their original format instead of exporting them to Word. This is generally only useful when migrating from one Box account to another.
