IMPORTANT: Admins of sites currently using the Box.net repository are advised to upgrade as soon as possible and run the Box.net-alias-to-copy-conversion tool. See Box.net APIv1 migration for details.
The Box.net repository enables users to copy files from Box.net into Moodle. (Previously a shortcut/alias could be made to a file stored in Box.net, however with Box.net API v2 this is unfortunately no longer possible.)
Enabling the Box.net repository
To use the Box.net repository, your Moodle site must use HTTPS. An admin can then enable the Box.net repository as follows:
- Obtain a client ID and secret from Box.net
- Go to Administration > Site administration > Plugins > Repositories > Manage Repositories
- Activate the Box.net repository by selecting 'Enable and visible' in the dropdown menu
- Configure each repository by entering the client ID and secret. Make sure you don't include any white space in the text boxes!
- Save changes
There is just one capability, View box.net repository, which is allowed for the default authenticated user role.
