In order to integrate with Box, you will first need to configure, and securely store the authentication credentials for the Box Account/s you want to use with the Hornbill App.

Configure your Box account authentication in KeySafe in order to use the Box options.

In the admin console > System > Security > KeySafe

  • Select on + and select Box
  • Give the Box KeySafe a Title (this is the name/identifier for the Box account as you will see it when using the Integration Call node in your business process or custom button)
  • Optionally add a description
  • Select Create Key to save

Once the Key is created, you will need to connect to Box and your account, in order to authorize the Hornbill App to perform the listed Box options.

  • Select Connect

You will be redirected to Box in a pop-up window, where you will be required to log in to your Box account, and then you will be prompted to review the option you are authorising the Hornbill App to be allowed to perform with the chosen Box account, read and then select Allow

Managing Box Configurations

  • Use KeySafe to create, store and enable Box account in KeySafe in order to revoke authentication rights for the Hornbill App to use the account.
    • This will revoke the rights of any existing Box Integration Calls in your business processes or Custom Buttons, which are using the revoked Box Account, so you will need to edit these accordingly.
