Box Platform Overview

Welcome to the Box Developer documentation! This site contains technical documentation of the Box APIs, guides, sample code, SDKs and libraries, and much more.

Box is a cloud-based service that helps people securely store, access, share, and collaborate on files across devices. In addition to web, mobile, and desktop applications, Box offers administrative capabilities to help manage unstructured data across an entire organization.

Box also offers an open development platform, with APIs and SDKs, known as Box Platform, that developers can use for a variety of purposes.

Developers can use Box Platform to:

  • Bring white-labeled functionality found in the Box applications to their own applications
  • Build an integration between Box and another application or service
  • Automate routine processes with Box or customize Box for their organization
