Add/Edit Box Business Source
This source type was deprecated for security reasons. Your Box Business Legacy sources still works, but it is recommended to create a Box Business source to replace it. The main difference between these two source types is that when you create a Box Business source, you provide your Box application credentials as a JSON configuration rather than as a string in a box.
Source Features Summary

Rescan or rebuild needed to:
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.
Select by whom the Box account content is searchable (see Source Permission Types):
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:
- 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 Manage 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 need to click Start initial build or Start initial rebuild in the source Status column to respectively add the source content and make your changes effective.
Click Add and Build Source/Save and Rebuild Source when you are done editing the source and want to make changes effective.
Back in the Coveo Cloud administration console Sources page, you can review the progress of your Box source addition or modification (see Manage Sources).
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).
