OAuth 2.0 Custom Application Enablement
Today, we improved the custom application approval flow, allowing OAuth 2.0 custom applications to be enabled more efficiently.
When you create a custom app, it is treated as unpublished until it makes it into the App Gallery. By default, unpublished apps do not require enablement; however, if your Box Admin changes the enterprise settings for apps, you will have to request approval before using your app.
To make things easier, we automated this process. If your app requires approval, you will see the Enablement tab in the Developer Console. Click Review and Submit to pass the app details to you Box Admin via email.
Additionally, the app will appear under User Authentication Apps in the Custom App Manager section of the Admin Console, where a Box Admin can review and approve it.
If you are interested in the Custom App Manager and its features, have a look at the article exploring more Custom Apps Manager updates. It will provide you with additional details on how Box handles authentication and authorization of custom apps.
