We currently have an integration where we generate a URL to view a document in Box using the folder id and the document number but I was curious if there were any other ways to view the file in box by adjusting that URL (and not using any custom or shared link that could be created by the api). I'm really just curious if there is anything else to the typical:
I realize currently the 0/f/###.... portion of the URL maps to the folder containing the document. while the /1/f_###.... portion of the URL is the actual document number itself. So my curiousity would be is there a way to have a viewing url without the folder portion? Or can the folder portion be the name of the folder instead of its number? Are there any other numbers instead of the 0 and 1 that do any sort of different processing? I did a little hunting to see if there was some documentation on this and I didn't turn up anything so maybe I just need to be pointed in the right direction. I also tried a few guesses but none seemed to work so I figured I would ask. Thanks in advance for your help!
