Your app listing in the Box App Gallery is often the first place the Box sales team, Box customer success managers, Box users, and others search to find out about your application.
To create your listing:
- Login to the Box developer site “Manage a Box Application“ page with the Box user credentials associated with your integration’s API key
- If you don’t know the user credentials associated, email email@example.com to have your email added to the account
- If you need to create the application, follow these steps here.
- Click on “My Applications” in the top right corner and select “Edit Application” for the app you wish to publish (each app is associated with a specific API key)
- To complete the listing form you will need:
- 3 logos of the following exact sizes: 100x80 pixels, 64x64 pixels and 16x16 pixels (corresponding to the large, medium and small application icons respectively)
- 3 screenshots of your integration/application in action (these will be resized to 640x480, jpg and gif only)
- A detailed description of your app, with the final paragraph describing how to use the Box integration (should be at least 3 paragraphs)
- An 85-100 character description of your app (needs to be within this exact character count)
- A direct link to the application in “Website URL” (or iTunes / Google Play listing if mobile app)
- To create links within the text of your listing, use this following syntax: "[url text]" (e.g., [http://www.cnn.com Click here for CNN]).
To publish your listing:
Select the “Yes (submit for Box approval)” radio button about halfway down the page. Once selected, notify the partner team so they can review and publish the application publicly.
- Here is an example of what your listing will look like.

- Platforms: Android Phone, Android Tablet, Blackberry, Desktop, iPad, iPhone, Mac, Mobile, Printing, Web, webOS, Widgets, Windows
- Functions: Annotation, Collaboration, Content Management, CRM, Editing, Faxing, Previewing, Printing, Project Management, Scanning Security
