Box developer documentation update

As part of our continued work to enhance our developer onboarding documentation, we’d like to introduce a new series of guides and quickstarts that have recently gone live.

  • SSO integration best practices: Four new guides have been launched in our new SSO and app users section, covering best practices for how to attach an outside single sign-on solution with a Box application via Box users.
  • SSO quickstart with Okta: For a practical walkthrough, this quickstart walks through how to set up an Okta login and users to provision and link Box app users to create a unified experience between Okta and Box.
  • Metadata queries: These eight new guides show you how to find files and folders by searching for the metadata attached to them using a brand new metadata querying system.
  • Metadata quickstart: Expanding upon the metadata documentation enhancements from March, this quickstart will walk you through all facets of working with metadata on files and folders.

You can expect to see more guides, content, and quickstarts coming to the site in the future, but we’d love to hear from you if there are specific topics that you’d like us to cover. You can reach out to us via Twitter, the developer forum, or through the site’s GitHub repository with any of those questions or suggestions you may have.
