Enabling the Box portfolio

In order to use the Box portfolio, 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.

  1. Go to Administration > Site administration > Plugins > Portfolios > Manage Portfolios
  2. Activate the portfolio by selecting 'Enabled and visible' in the dropdown menu
  3. Configure each portfolio by entering the client ID and secret
  4. Save changes

Sending/"pushing" your files to Box

  • You can export items such as assignments, chat and forum posts to enabled portfolios such as Box. Here is an example with a forum post:
  • At the bottom of your completed forum post are the words "export to portfolio".

  • Click the words "export to portfolio" and then select from the dropdown (If it is the only portfolio enabled, it will be the only choice!)
  • On the next screen, choose your sharing options and which folder to export to:


  • Click to confirm the export:


  • Click "Continue". If you haven't done this before you will be prompted to log in to your account. Agree and log in.
  • The "export complete" message will appear. Clicking "continue" will take you to Box if you wish.
