In our ongoing effort to make it easier than ever to onboard to the Box API, we are excited to announce the release of our newest quick start guide: Learn to use the Box CLI.

The Box CLI is a user-friendly command line tool which allows both technical and non-technical users to leverage the Box API to perform routine or bulk actions. There is no need to write any code, as these actions are executed through a set of commands.

This quick start takes you through the following steps:

  1. Create, configure, and authorize a Box application
  2. Install and configure the CLI
  3. Run commands with the CLI
  4. Use flags and bulk commands
