Today, we’re excited to announce that the new Box Developer Console is generally available to all developer accounts! The new Box Developer Console is a complete design and functionality overhaul of the existing Box Developer Console and makes it easier than ever to create and manage applications on the Box Platform. You can check out the new Box Developer Console by logging into your developer account here.
The new Box Developer Console includes a refreshed UI, guided walkthroughs for creating and configuring apps based on your use case, access to support and documentation, and a mechanism to submit bugs and other feedback to the Box Developer Relations team. The new Box Developer Console leverages the same design language as the latest Box web and mobile apps and provides a foundation for us to introduce new administrative functionality to developers building with Box Platform.
We first announced the new Box Developer Console at BoxWorks 2016 and opened a public beta back in February of this year. Since then, thousands of developers have enabled the new Box Developer Console, providing tons of valuable feedback along the way. Moving to GA, we’ve made dozens of UI tweaks based on our beta and we’re also introducing a new feature that lets you automatically generate RSA keypairs and export your app’s configuration for authentication with JWT. You can read more about that feature in our blog post here.
We’ll be rolling out the new Box Developer Console to all developer accounts in the next few days. If you aren’t ready to switch just, you can still use the old Box Developer Console for the new few weeks. We’ll also be rolling out new features and functionality in the new Box Developer Console, so stay tuned for more updates!
