    Hi ,


    To get authenticated with Box, you can use this guide to set up a JWT application, and this guide will walk you through the auth process.


    That id param is the Box file ID. You can get a file ID in a few different ways:

    1. Through the APIs, generally you will get file information when you upload a file via (return JSON includes the file ID), or if you are searching for particular files to download using the search endpoint, or if you are retrieving a list of files in a given folder.
    2. If you load up the file visually in, the URL should look something like The last series of numbers in the URL for a file or folder will always be the ID of that file or folder.

    Hope that helps,
