Add or Edit Box Business Source
This connector was deprecated for security reasons. Your Box Business Legacy sources still work, but it is recommended to create a Box Business source to replace it. The main difference is that when you create Box Business sources, you provide your Box application credentials as a JSON configuration rather than as a string in a box.

Add or Edit a Box Business Legacy Source
If not already in the Add/Edit a Box Business Source panel, go to the panel:
To add a source, in the main menu, under Content, select Sources > Add source button > Box > Box Business Legacy.
To edit a source, in the main menu, under Content, select Sources > source row > Edit in the Action bar.
In the Add/Edit a Box Business Legacy Source panel, in the Configuration tab, enter appropriate parameter values:
A descriptive name for your source under 255 characters (not already in use for another source in this organization).
You cannot change the source name once it is created.
Box Enterprise ID
An Enterprise ID is required to identify the Box Business account content to include. Provide the unique identifier that is displayed in your Box Enterprise Admin Console, in the Account & Billing tab.
Character optical recognition (OCR)
Check this box if you want Coveo Cloud to extract text from image files and/or PDF files containing images (see Enable Optical Character Recognition). OCR-extracted text is processed as item data, meaning that it is fully searchable and will appear in the item Quick View (see Search Result Quick View).
When adding a source, if you have more than one logical (non-Elasticsearch) index in your organization, select the index in which the retrieved content will be stored (see Leverage Multiple Coveo Indexes). If your organization only has one index, this drop-down menu is not visible and you have no decision to make.
Select by whom the Box account content is searchable (see Content Security):
Shared - Everyone
Secured - Only users authenticated in the search interface will see the source items for which they have read permission.
In the Users to Include section:
- Select All if you want to make all your managed Box accounts searchable.
In the User emails box that appears, enter the user email addresses corresponding to the Box accounts you want to make searchable.
When you want users to be included as separate items, add the
IndexUsershidden parameter and set it to
truein the source JSON configuration (see Source JSON Modification Examples). The default value is
Under Coveo application API key, click Copy to clipboard, and then provide it to Box:
In your Box Admin console, in the Apps tab, under Custom Applications, click Authorize New App.
In the App Authorization dialog that opens, paste the Coveo application API key in the API Key box, and then click Next.
- In the Access tab, determine whether each group and API key can view or edit the source configuration (see Understanding Resource Access):
- In the Access Level column, select View or Edit for each available group.
- On the left-hand side of the tab, if available, click Groups or API Keys to switch lists.
If you remove the Edit access level from all the groups of which you are a member, you will not be able to edit the source again after saving. Only administrators and members of other groups that have Edit access on this resource will be able to do so. To keep your ability to edit this resource, you must grant the Edit access level to at least one of your groups.
Optionally, consider editing or adding mappings between Box item metadata and fields in your Coveo Cloud organization (see Adding and Managing Source Mappings).
You can only manage mapping rules once you build the source (see Refresh, Rescan, or Rebuild Sources).
Complete your source addition or edition:
Click Add Source/Save when you want to save your source configuration changes without starting a build/rebuild, such as when you know you want to do other changes soon.
In the Sources page, you must click Start initial build or Start required rebuild in the source Status column to add the source content or make your changes effective, respectively.
Click Add and Build Source/Save and Rebuild Source when you are done editing the source and want to make changes effective.
Optionally, review the source refresh schedule.
By default, your Box Business Legacy source is refreshed every 15 minutes to quickly make your Box enterprise content changes searchable (additions, modifications, or deletions). When your Box account content does not change frequently, consider increasing the refresh time interval (such as every hour or every day) to optimize resource consumption (see Edit a Source Schedule).
Review your source update schedule (see Edit a Source Schedule).
