The Tools interact with your Box account via a series of API calls. The Box requires you to setup an application in order to interact with your APIs. You'll likely need to engage your Box admin for assistance. Service-to-service is the recommended way of connecting using OAuth 2.0 with JWT. Once your admin creates your app, they will be able to provide you with your service account file (a JSON).
The XML file is actually referring to your Alteryx workflow containing the Box Tools. An workflow is just an XML document that you can open up in a text editor. The connection parameters you provide via the service-to-service or end user are encrypted in this workflow in order to make the proper API calls.
Were you able to get your Box tools configured? I'm attempting the same steps as you outlined above. The Box administrator on my end has set me up as co-admin but I still get the message "Disabled By Administrator" when configuring the Box tools. So my Box Administrator and I are still researching and Box says they do not provide support in this area.
