    Hey Liam,

    I ran a quick test yesterday and verified this morning that if a shared link expires and you generate a new one for the same content, the string at the end of the link will be different instead of "restored". For example, if the shared link before expiration is https://app.box.com/s/1234 and then expires and you generate a new one (for the same content), it is https://app.box.com/s/9876.

    Therefore, you will need to have a process to catch links before they expire and update to extend the date if you want the link to remain the same. Otherwise, you will have to generate brand new links. It only possible to see where the shared link points before expiration via this endpoint.

    Best,
