Box connector

Box is a service that enables the storage and sharing of files in the cloud. You can create, update, and delete users and folders, and make custom API calls to the Box  API.

Authorize your Box account

When you add a Box card to a Flow for the first time, you'll be prompted to configure the connection. This will enable you to connect your Box account, save your account information, and reuse the connection for future Box Flows. See Authorization.
