Run analytics app in the gallery with path to Box Folder

Asteroid

Hi there,

 

Is there any way to include my Box folder credential in the Input or Output path? In that way, I could get files from Box folder and save the results to box folder. 

 

Thanks.

Hi @Amy18 

 

You have a couple of options here. First would be to use the Box API along with the Download tool. Second is to sync your Box folders within Windows File Explorer and read and write as if they were a local folder (which they will be once you sync).

Hi Jamielaird,

 

For the second approach, do I need to include my credential when I upload my analytics app into gallery? In that way, people can use the files in Box.

 

Thanks.
