Downloading files using BOX API

Hi Team,


I am trying to download file via BOX API.

Through Box API I am able to get access token when I do a post request.


But when I am trying to download file from the folder path which I gave it is throwing error as below:BOX.PNG

[INFO ]: 2017-04-26 12:36:56,532 enterprise_big_data.call_box_api_0_1.Call_Box_API - TalendJob: 'Call_Box_API' - Start.

Any help is much appreciated.

Re: Downloading files using BOX API

I haven't been able to successfully pull data from Box API v2 using the tBoxConnection. In your example are you using a developer access_token? Or is the tBoxConnection component working for you? What I ended up doing was creating a JWT subjob that signs a JWT payload and handles the authentication. Then I just use tRest components to request various endpoints listed here I am assuming that tBoxConnection has not been updated to work with Box API v2. Can anyone confirm this?
