Authentication

Box uses OAuth authentication. When you connect your Box account, Pipedream will open a popup window where you can sign into Box and grant Pipedream permission to connect to your account. Pipedream securely stores and automatically refreshes the OAuth tokens so you can easily authenticate any Box API.

Pipedream requests the following authorization scopes when you connect your account:

OAuth Request Configurations:
  1. authorization
    GEThttps://account.box.com/api/oauth2/authorize?client_id={{oauth.client_id}}&redirect_uri={{oauth.redirect_uri}}&state={{oauth.state}}&response_type=code&scope={{oauth.space_separated_scopes}}
  2. accessToken
