Simplify automating processes that use file storage by replacing UI operations with background API calls.

Box is a cloud content management and file sharing service, primarily focused on businesses. Box customers can now manage their files, folders, permissions etc. directly from a UiPath Robot. The package provides an integration between UiPath and that permits the usage of key functionalities that are most likely to be used in automation.

This UiPath Official Preview package includes the following activities:

· Box Scope: provides authentication for Box services and all activities, using JWT (Server Authentication) or standard OAuth 2.0 (User Authentication)
· Invoke Method: Invoke any Box API method from an easily configurable dialog.

File Management
· Upload, Update, Copy, Delete, Move, Lock/Unlock or Download a File
· Get File Info, Get Detailed File Info, and Get File Lock Info
· Get File Comments

Chunked File Uploads
· Create New File Upload or Version Session
· Upload File Chunk
· Commit Session

File Version Control
· Get Versions, Promote Version and Delete Old Version

Folder Management
· Create, Copy, Rename, and Delete Folders
· Get Folder Info and Folder Items

· Search for Content



Easier to develop by having dedicated activities for many operations on files and folders and faster to execute as these activities are using the Box API to communicate with the Box platform.
