Connecting to Box

When creating a Box connection you simply log in with Box, and OAuth authentication token is stored on the Skyvia server. Your Box account login and password are not stored on the Skyvia server.

note Note

Files on Box are accessed not by a file name, but by their unique ids. This causes the following behavior: if you replace a file, used in an import package, on Box, you will need to edit the package and reload the source file in it. Otherwise, the import package won't be able to find the new file with the same name on Box when run next time.

To create a Box connection, perform the following steps:

1.Open the Connections page by clicking Connections in the menu on the left side of the page.
2.Click the New button.
3.In the opened pane click Box.
4.In the opened New Connection dialog box, specify a connection Name that will be used to identify the connection.
 
box-connection-editor
5.Click Log In with Box.
 
box-login
6.In the opened window enter your Box credentials and click the Authorize button.
 
box-grant-access
7.Click Grant access to Box.
8.Click the Save button to save the connection.
