Support » Plugin: External Media » Anyone successful with BOX.COM API?

  • Resolved rhorine


    Has anyone been able to successfully create a BOX.COM app with an API key that allows this plugin to access the BOX.COM files from the WordPress Media add function without having to specify login credentials each time? If so, I would appreciate some advice.

    I was able to create a BOX.COM app and get the CLIENT ID. By using this in the plugin, it does allow me to access BOX from the WordPress Media add function, but it does require login credentials. I was hoping this would be seemless so that other WordPress admins for my site do not have to enter the login credentials to BOX when retrieving files from there.

    Hello @rhorine

    The plugin is not meant to be used that way, access to common BOX account could not be shared and each user should be using their own credentials.

    Think of this plugin like an additional option to upload the files, just like you would click “Browser” button to pick files for upload, this plugin is only extends the same logic to other external services.



    Thanks for the clarification.
