Please reply below and tell us what you think! Your feedback will be critical as we drive toward GA release.
Simplify automating processes that use Box.com file storage by replacing UI operations with background API calls.
Box customers can now manage their files, folders, permissions etc. directly from a UiPath Robot. The package provides an integration between UiPath and Box.com that permits the usage of key functionalities that are most likely to be used in automation.
This UiPath Official Preview package includes the following activities:
Box Scope: provides authentication for Box services and all activities, using JWT (Server Authentication) or standard OAuth 2.0 (User Authentication)
Invoke Method: Invoke any Box API method from an easily configurable dialog.

Getting Started (Guide + Demo)
Check out the demo below and the user guide to help get you up to speed fast.
For the robot you will need to provide the ID of the resource, e.g. for CreatedSharedLink (Folder), you would set:
id = id of the Folder you want to create a link for
sharedLinkRequest = you will need to create a new object and optionally set it’s parameters, e.,g. new BoxSharedLinkRequest
Attached is the folder I used. The credentials are removed so you will have to supply your own.
