Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 2.8. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version of Moodle may be available here: Box repository.
IMPORTANT: Admins of sites currently using the Box repository are advised to upgrade as soon as possible and run the Box-alias-to-copy-conversion tool. See Box APIv1 migration for details.
The Box repository enables users to copy files from Box into Moodle. (Previously a shortcut/alias could be made to a file stored in Box; however with Box API v2 this is unfortunately no longer possible.)
Enabling the Box repository
Note: In order to use the Box repository, your Moodle site must use HTTPS. In addition, an administrator must obtain a Box client ID and secret, as described in Box APIv1 migration. The client ID and secret can then be used to configure all Box plugins.
- Go to Administration > Site administration > Plugins > Repositories > Manage Repositories
- Activate the Box repository by selecting 'Enabled 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.
