    Hi Boris,

     

    I was able to use this code in Powershell to upload a file . Do not worry about the first function get-I contenttype. this is just used for getting the contenttype of the file. not100% sure even if we need this. 

    I hope this works for you as well.  You might get error due to bad formatting of "payload". If you do let me know and I will share the file with you. 

     

    thanks, 

    Bibek

     

    code starts here:

     

    cls

    #function that returns the content type based on the file extension
    function Get-ContentType
    {
    param([System.IO.FileInfo]$file = $null);
    $contentType = $null;
    $contentTypeMap = @{

    Thank you, this looks almost correct.

    it's exactly what mentioned in this reference articles:
    http://stackoverflow.com/questions/23059945/upload-a-file-to-box-com-using-powershell

    http://joe-pruitt.ulitzer.com/node/1006737/mobile

     

    but this is specificly for the BOX.

     

    Unfortunatelly, it's still doesn't want to work for me...

    It's failing on the:

    $upload_file = Invoke-RestMethod -Uri 'https://upload.box.com/api/2.0/files/content' -Method POST -Headers $headers -Body $template -ContentType "multipart/form-data; boundary=$boundary" -Verbose

    Error:

    System.FormatException: The specified content type is invalid.

       at Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.WebRequestPSCmdlet.ProcessRecord()
       at System.Management.Automation.CommandProcessor.ProcessRecord()

     

    Could you share file as you mentioned please?

    Hi Boris,

     

    It could be becuase of copy-paste from web.

    Try this link:

     

    https://app.box.com/s/46hwgi48n31g42vuqjk67d01abceypij

     

    Let me know if it works. Also, check if the type of file that you are trying to upload is listed in content-type function. 

     

    Good luck.

     

    thanks,

    Bibek

    Thank you!
    I have downloaded file you provided. Refreshed Token and assigned value to the $accessToken

    then edited this:

    uploadFile -filename "C:\Temp\Box\test.txt" -folderid 0

     

    simple test.txt - listed in the content-type function.

     

    Continue to get error:
    System.FormatException: The specified content type is invalid.

       at System.Management.Automation.CommandProcessor.ProcessRecord()

     

     

    I am really confused with this....

    I am not sure why you are getting that error. This is working for me. 

     

    Could you try this command in powershell prompt to get the version:

    $PSVersionTable.PSVersion

     

    just wanted to see the version. Also, make sure you have latest .NET framework (4.5) installed. 

    let me know what you find.

    Interesting... if it's working for you, i'll try to figure out, what's going on.


    I have latest PowerShell installed.

     

    PS C:\WINDOWS\system32>> $PSVersionTable

    Name Value

    ---- -----

    PSVersion 5.1.***number removed for privacy***

    PSEdition Desktop

    PSCompatibleVersions {1.0, 2.0, 3.0, 4.0...}

    BuildVersion 10.0.***number removed for privacy***

    CLRVersion 4.0.***number removed for privacy***0

    WSManStackVersion 3.0

    PSRemotingProtocolVersion 2.3

    SerializationVersion 1.1.0.1

     

    .Net version is 4.6.01586

    You seem to have latest versions. Sometimes closing powershell entirely and reopening works becuase of the cache. 

     

    You may try to hard-code content-type in this line:

    Content-Type: "+$contenttype+"; charset=utf-8

     

    e.g.   Content-Type: text/plain; charset=utf-8

     

    and see how it goes. 

     

    thanks, 

    Bibek

    Thank you for advice!

     

    Yes, of course, I’ve checked if variable

    "+$contenttype+" 

    resolves successfully.

     

    The core of issue was actually different.

    This string has error:

    $upload_file = Invoke-RestMethod -Uri "https://upload.box.com/api/2.0/files/content" -Method POST -Headers $headers -Body $template -ContentType "multipart/form-data;boundary =$boundary" -Verbose

    There should be NO SPACE before equal sign here…

    -ContentType "multipart/form-data;boundary =$boundary"

    So CORRECT wil be: (I didn't expect that initially)

    $upload_file = Invoke-RestMethod -Uri "https://upload.box.com/api/2.0/files/content" -Method POST -Headers $headers -Body $template -ContentType "multipart/form-data;boundary=$boundary" -Verbose

     

    For those, who will have same issue:

    It’s very important to format $template exactly like in your script, as ANY additional space or EMPTY String or TAB may cause issue.

    The correct format:  

    $template = "
    --$boundary
    Content-Disposition: form-data; name=""file""; filename="""+$filename.Name+"""
    
    "+$filebodytemplate+"
    --$boundary
    Content-Type:text/plain; charset=utf-8
    Content-Disposition: form-data; name=""metadata""
    
    {""name"":"""+$filename.Name+""",""parent"":{""id"":"""+$folderid+"""}}
    
    --$boundary--"

    -OR

    Alternative way of creating Template body, to prevent formatting issues may be:

    [System.Text.StringBuilder]$contents = New-Object System.Text.StringBuilder
    $contents.AppendLine()
    $contents.AppendLine("--$boundary")
    $contents.AppendLine("Content-Disposition: form-data; name=""file""; filename=""$($filename.Name)""")
    $contents.AppendLine()
    $contents.AppendLine($filebodytemplate)
    $contents.AppendLine("--$boundary")
    $contents.AppendLine("Content-Type: $contenttype; charset=utf-8")
    $contents.AppendLine("Content-Disposition: form-data; name=""metadata""")
    $contents.AppendLine()
    $contents.AppendLine("{""name"":""$($filename.Name)"",""parent"":{""id"":""$folderid""}}")
    $contents.AppendLine()
    $contents.AppendLine("--$boundary--")
    $template = $contents.ToString()

    I think it might be less visible, but more safe to format and copy paste.

    THANK YOU BIBEK_K!

     

    So full solution with Token Generation may look like this:

    function Register-BoxApp {
     Register-BoxApp -AppName VrgSync -ClientID xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx -ClientSecret xxxxxxxxxxxxx -Mode New
        OK
    
        access_token  : xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
        expires_in    : 4020
        restricted_to : {}
        refresh_token : xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
        token_type    : bearer
    .INPUTS
        System.String
    .OUTPUTS
        System.Object, System.Bool
    #>
        [CmdletBinding()]
        param (

    Hello all,

     

    Thanks for sharing your script.

    I have modified it so that it loops through a specific local directory and uploads all of the files found to the Box directory.

     

    If anyone else want to do that you only need to make a small change to the main script; the code looks like this...

     

     

    $files = Get-ChildItem "C:\PATH\TH\DIRECTORY\"
    for ($i=0; $i -lt $files.Count; $i++) {
        # main script
        [string]$AppName = 'ENTER APPLICATION NAME'
        [string]$ClientID = 'ENTER CLIENT ID'
        [string]$ClientSecret = 'ENTER CLIENT SECRET'
        [string]$RegKey = "HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Box.com\$AppName"
        [string]$FilePath = $files[$i].FullName
        [string]$FolderID = '0'
    
        if (Test-Path -Path $RegKey){
            if ($TokenObj = Get-ItemProperty -Path $RegKey){
               if ((Get-Date) -ge [datetime]$TokenObj.expires_in){
                   Write-Verbose -Message 'Refresh Token and save it back to registry'
                   $TokenObj = Register-BoxApp -AppName $AppName -ClientID $ClientID -ClientSecret $ClientSecret -Mode Refresh
               }
               else {
                  Write-Verbose -Message 'Token is valid, no need to Refresh it.'
              }
           }
           else {
               Write-Verbose -Message 'Create New Token and save it to registry'
               $TokenObj = Register-BoxApp -AppName $AppName -ClientID $ClientID -ClientSecret $ClientSecret -Mode New
          }
        }
        else {
          Write-Verbose -Message 'Create New Token and save it to registry'
          $TokenObj = Register-BoxApp -AppName $AppName -ClientID $ClientID -ClientSecret $ClientSecret -Mode New
        }
    
        # provide file full path and the parent folder ID
        Start-UploadFileToBox -filename $FilePath -folderid $FolderID -accessToken $TokenObj.access_token
    }

    I can get it to upload all of the files as desired, the only thing is that I want to schedule it to run every night.

    Sometimes files uploaded one night will be changed and then need to be uploaded the next night.

    Right now when it tries to upload a file that has already been uploaded I get an error 409 name conflict.

    So the files that I want to be updated or replaced do not get updated, and I spend a lot of time and system resources attempting to upload files that have not changed since last time.

     

    Is anyone good enough with PowerShell and the Box APIs to help me figure out how to upload a new version of a document if it has been modified?

     

    I am sure it could be done using either update-file or update-folder & the if-match header with etags - but I am not good enough to figure it out.

     

    Any gurus think they could help me out here?

     

    Thank you,

    David C. Johnson

    This was corrupting any non text files for me. The encoding seemed to be changing some non ascii bytes.  The fix below could probably be written better but it worked for me.

     

    I commented these two lines

    #$enc = [System.Text.Encoding]::GetEncoding("utf-8")
    #$filebodytemplate = $enc.GetString($filebody)

     

    And replaced them with these

     

    $filestring = New-Object System.Text.StringBuilder
    $filebody | foreach {$null = $filestring.Append([char]$_)}
    $filebodytemplate = $filestring.ToString()

    All these examples load the entire file contents into memory before uploading. Has anybody got this to work by streaming the upload with a byte buffer?
