    Hi  ,

     

    Thanks for reaching out. Good question.

     

    Think of the developer token method as a way to test api calls manually without setting up either of Box's two authentication methods. This is useful if you just want to see how the API works, but once you're at the stage of wanting to build application logic, you will want to make sure you set up an auth method. 

     

    Let me point you to this guide:

    https://developer.box.com/guides/authentication/select/

     

    There are some samples in .NET there for each method. If you haven't worked with these authentication methods before with other APIs, it can be a lot to understand at once, so definitely take your time and don't worry too much if you need to test and try things out. Hope that helps!
