Box is a cloud content management system that provides a single place to manage, secure, share and govern all of the content for your internal and external collaboration and processes.
The Box activities enable you to automate interactions with your Box application. Using the Box API, this activities package gives your UiPath robot(s) the ability to execute functions and actions, upload and download attachments, and manage your records (get, update, insert, and delete).
To enable the outbound automation between UiPath and Box, the activities establish an authenticated connection to a Box custom application using the Box Scope activity.
After the connection is established, the other Box activities send requests to the applicable Box API operations using the parameters you enter in the activities' input properties (via the properties panel and/or Object Wizard. If the requests are successful, the activities return the response values to the output property variables.
Before the scope activity can be used to establish a connection, you must complete the steps outlined in the Setup guide. After you complete the Setup steps, you can begin building your automation projects
