    Hi Box Team,

    I have the same issue at hand.

    I need to upload 5gb size file size to box folder using python.

    What i have done so far:

    (1) First i asked our company box admin to grant me the access tokens to do box transactions.

    And using Box.V2.Core i was able to upload small size files. Which i suppose that tokens defined and on my json file allows me to do the transaction.

    (2) Following the instructions on this link, https://developer.box.com/en/guides/uploads/chunked/..

    I tried to do step by step, copying and pasting the sample code in python to do the 

    Create session, Upload Part and Commit Upload routines.

    I can see that it was able to create the required session, but i got stuck on the uploading part and never to have reached committing the the upload.

    What i wanted to accomplish is to upload such big file and return back to the user the status of the uploading..

     

    Here' the python code :

    ***********************************************************
    from boxsdk import JWTAuth, Client
    from boxsdk.exception import BoxException
    import hashlib


    config = JWTAuth.from_settings_file('132143_mygh48r3_config.json')
    client = Client(config)

    #creating upload session of the file to be uploaded
    file_size = 4596246517
    file_name = 'TestZippedFile.zip'
    upload_session = client.folder('130904095940').create_upload_session(file_size, file_name)
    print('Created upload session {0} with chunk size of {1} bytes'.format(upload_session.id, upload_session.part_size))
    #
    ##upload part
    upload_session_part = client.upload_session(upload_session.id)
    offset = upload_session.part_size * 200
    total_size = 4596246517
    part_bytes = b'abcdefgh'
    part = upload_session.upload_part_bytes(part_bytes, offset, total_size)
    print('Successfully uploaded part ID {0}'.format(part['part_id']))


    #commit upload
    sha1 = hashlib.sha1()
    # sha1 should have been updated with all the bytes of the file

    file_atributes = {
    'description': 'A file uploaded via Chunked Upload',
    }

    upload_session = client.upload_session(upload_session.id)
    uploaded_file = upload_session.commit(sha1.digest(), file_atributes=file_atributes)

    parts = client.upload_session(upload_session.id).get_parts()
    for part in parts:
    print('Part {0} at offset {1} has already been uploaded'.format(part['part_id'], part['offset']))

    print('Successfully uploaded file {0} with description {1}'.format(uploaded_file.id, uploaded_file.description))

    ***********************************************************

    Here's the line by line execution on my console..
