Shared links enable your managed users to quickly create hyperlinks to content stored in Box and copy and share those hyperlinks with coworkers and collaborators both inside and outside the company. Account Administrators and co-Admins can define shared link preferences for all content owned by their managed users. If an option is disabled at the Administrator level, it will not appear for all managed users, and for Collaborators in folders owned by managed users. Change the settings at the Admin level only if you want to restrict sharing access for every file and folder in your account.
To access shared link settings from an Admin or Co-Admin account:
- From your admin console, go to Enterprise Settings > Content and Sharing tab.
- Scroll down to the Shared Links section.
- Configure how shared links are allowed and used. See the Shared Links section in Enterprise Settings: Content & Sharing Tab for details.
- Click Save.
Shared links do not support multi-factor/2-factor authentication (MFA/2FA). If your organization requires 2FA for managed users and collaborators, recipients of shared links outside of your organization will not be required to enable 2FA to access the content of charged links.
