I am using BoxSDK for python. There I am using JWT authentication. I have created an app on Developer account for testing which uses authentication as OAuth 2.0 with JSON Web Tokens (Server Authentication).
After creating this TestApp in developer account I am using it in some APIs to do some basic operations in Box. I also got an Service Account ID. related to my test app.
All good till here.
But I am facing issue when I am uploading a folder in my box account through browser and then try accessing that folder contents via Box API, its not accessible.
The same is accessible when I am adding the service account ID as a collaborator in that folder.
So I want to know if there is any option using which I dont need to do the above part i.e. adding service account ID as a collaborator in every folder that I want to access through API. Please suggest.
Is this behavior only for test account? If I take Enterprise edition of Box, will this issue be solved?
I need that whatever folder I upload in Box through website, it should be accessible vis API where I am using JWT authentication.
Many thanks for your help.
