The Box plugins enable federated searches of Box images directly from the search panel.

There are two Box plugins:

  • Feature—This plugin provides federated searches of Box. These resources are retrieved as read-only and are not imported into Brightspot.
  • Content—Imports Box resources into Brightspot so you can add or change metadata.

The Box plugins require the following:

  • Box enterprise account, allowing for any editor to retrieve Box resources.
  • Client ID and Client Secret to configure the Box feature plugin. Using the Box Developer Console, you can find these values on the Configuration page for your application.
  • In your Box console, specify the following redirect URI in the OAuth 2 configuration: https://<brightspotDomain>/boxAuth.
