Is there a way to edit files in browser as an app user (JWT user)? We're looking for an app user flow similar to a managed user opening a file in box and editing it in browser, such as opening and editing the file using Microsoft Word Online.
Context for the curious -
I'm working in a .NET application with version 3.9.3 of the SDK. I've created the user, and put them in a group that can see the file. When I use the user's token and call client.SearchManager.SearchAsync(FILE NAME), it returns the file. With the user's token, I've created SharedLinks for the file with an AccessType of open. When hitting the SharedLink URL in a chrome browser, I did not see any editing capability. If I was logged in to my own box account in a different browser tab, it appeared to pick up my personal user credentials and enable editing options.
We tested out the Box Embed component on the same file, and did not see any edit capabilities. I have not tested out the other box UI elements, but I did not find anything in their doc suggesting they could provide edit functionality for app users.
