I got this product where I have customers. For each customer I create a folder on Box, using the box api. Then every time I go to a customer details page, we want to show all that customer's documents coming from box. Every customer in our app will have a folder in BOX that was created using the api. For that, I'm doing this:
When tried to display a customer's documents, our app uses the API to create/update a set-to-expire Shared-Link to that customer's folder, and then show the embed widget with all the sub-folders and files in our website.
Now the problem is that, I would like to be able to directly add/remove/edit files from that embed widget, only on that customer's folder. And at the same time, make it easy which means, I would expect the widget let us directly do those actions without the need of signing in with a box account every time?
Right now the sharedlink doesn't let me do that it seems like, only VIEW and Download. And what I want to avoid is to implement custom UI and backend to control those actions ourselves through API calls. We were really expecting the widget make all that transparent to our app and the user when working with customers in our website.
