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

There are two Box plugins, a feature plugin and a content plugin. The feature plugin is required, as it provides federated searches of Box resources. These resources are retrieved in an external data type format, and can only be viewed in Brightspot as read only. If you want the capability to import external Box resources into Brightspot, the Box content plugin must also be enabled.

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.
