The Folder Lock APIs are now available

As of today we’re happy to announce the general availability of the new Folder Lock APIs. Enhancing the control and security over the structure of your folders within Box, these new APIs may be used to lock a folder from being moved or deleted until the lock has been removed.

As part of this launch, there are three new endpoints that are being made available, allowing you to:

Creating a new folder lock

At the current time a folder lock will apply both lock operations (move and delete) automatically.

Folder Lock POST example

For more details, see the guide or API reference.

Fetching a list of locks on a folder

Folder Lock GET example

For more details, see the guide or API reference.

Deleting a lock from a folder

Folder Lock DELETE example

For more details, see the guide or API reference.

We hope you enjoy this new feature, and please feel free to reach out to us on the developer forum for support, or via Box Pulse to make suggestions on how to improve the feature.
