Deprovision Box User Accounts using the Box API
After an employee leaves your company, you will need to deprovision their Box account. This process has two parts. First, you will need to move that employee's folders and files to an Admin account. Second, you will need to delete the employee's account. The recipe on this page will show how to do this with the Box API.

Many business processes involve a file-based workflow. For example, let's say you are an insurance company and you need a way for companies to enroll their employees on an insurance plan. You can ask the company to upload a CSV with the list of employees to a Box folder. The insurance company can automatically process the enrollment of these employees by getting a notification about the CSV through a Box webhook. With the Box API, you can download that CSV with the list of employees and then upload a modified version back showing the employees were enrolled. This API recipe will show you how to accomplish those steps.
