Direct transfer docs stored on Amazon S3 bucket directly to Box for rendering back to the browser

     Unfortunately, this is currently not possible. We don't have a way to upload files to Box by providing a URL to a file. 


    As you mentioned, you would have to download the file from S3 to your server, upload it to Box, and then call the Generate Embed Link endpoint to preview the file. 


    A potential workaround to enable this use case without a server would be using a middleware service like Zapier that has prebuilt integrations with Box and S3. Another workaround would be using AWS Lambda download the file from S3 and then upload it to Box.

    Hi Murtza,


    Thanks for your reply.


    I discovered this in the URL Upload in the View API documentation:



     and am wondering if this is what I should use or is this API becoming deprecated?  If it is being deprecated, is there anything similar in the current .NET SDK?
