Migrating from View API V1 to View API V2回答済み
I'm in the process of updating code for my App so that I use Box View API V2. I'm to the point where I can use the new API to upload files and then grab the secure embed link. The question I have is what would be the best way to migrate all of the files that I uploaded via Box View API V1? The method I have in mind is to download each of the files then re-upload them using API V2. However, I have to wonder if Box has some type of migration built in so that I can just copy the old folder with all of its contents to the new folder and then grab all of the new file_ids via a curl operation.
Thanks so much!
Thanks for getting in touch, Eric!
You are spot on - the best way to migrate these files is by download the original ones from legacy View API and re-uploading using the Content API to New Box View. We are working on building out a migration tool to assist with us but if you have a small number of files, we recommend self-serve as the migration tool is designed for higher volumes of content (>10 TB) and may not be commercially viable for smaller volumes.
