    Hi

    There is flag you can set when you create the metadata template. https://box.dev/reference/resources/metadata-template/#param-copyInstanceOnItemCopy

    'copyInstanceOnItemCopy': Whether or not to copy any metadata attached to a file or folder when it is copied. By default, metadata is not copied along with a file or folder when it is copied.

    I don't think the API allows you to change the value once the template is created so you will probably have to re-create the template with the value set

    Best regards,
