Adding Box Storage Provider

How to add the Provider

The provider can be added by the Organization Administrator from the Dashboard and by and end user, as a Private Provider, from the Dashboard (if enabled).

Please note that for the Box Storage Provider to be available for Enterprise deployments it must exist in the package as defined by the Appliance Administrator.

Add Provider Wizard - Step 1

In the first step of the wizard name the root level directory for Box files. This is the name that will appear in the Global File System.

When you press the authorisation button you will see a redirection screen similar to below which is explicit about the website you are being re-directed to for authorization.

Add Provider Wizard - Step 2

The next step is to use your Box account to authorise access from the File Fabric.

** note that if you are using a Box teams account you may need to pre-authorize the File Fabric prior to connecting otherwise the connection will fail. Details on how to do this can be found here.


Once the last step is completed the File Fabric will start to index the Box account to make it available from the Global File System. The time this will take will be dependent on the amount of data.

Once this is complete Box will be accessible form the File Fabric's global file system.
