tBoxConnection

Hi,
has anyone a working sample including OAuth2 confiuration on how to connect to box? Maybe even with copying of files or something similar? Any input would be appreciated. Especially it would be nice to have a sample for getting access and refresh code.

best regards
Employee

Re: tBoxConnection

It should be documented in the component guide for the box components.

Re: tBoxConnection

OAuth 2.0 is great when you understand it. Unfortunately it doesn't work all that nicely with Talend because of how you need to register your applications. I have to admit that I am not familiar with box.com, but I have written a tutorial on how to get Access Tokens for Google's services and how to automatically use refresh tokens. I suspect you can adjust this slightly to use box.com. Take a look here https://www.rilhia.com/tutorials/using-oauth-20-talend-access-google-apis

Re: tBoxConnection

I have looked at your example prior to posting this question, but was not able to adapt it to box.com. i think I have to look into box oauth documentation more...

Re: tBoxConnection

As I said, this was written for Google's services so there will be some differences. But it should provide a reasonable template of the steps needed for Box.com (OAuth 2.0 is pretty standard in how it is applied). Goodluck :-)
