Box is an online file-sharing, storage, and collaboration service provider that caters to individual users as well as businesses. It lets you keep all your business files in one place for simple online collaboration. Box lets you share your files securely, and also create, edit, and review documents with others in real-time from anywhere, on any device.


Authorization means granting Flow Express the permission to make authorized calls to Box on your behalf. This process of authorizing involves connecting to your account in Box that you want the flow to use.

Let’s look at how to add your account.

In the ‘Authorization’ step, click ‘Authorize’ or ‘Add an account’ located at the bottom of the page. This will open a new dialog that will prompt you to log in to your Box account, and grant access to Flow Express.

Once you do this, a new authorization will be added, and you will be directed to the next step of your flow. You can, at any time, go back to the ‘Authorization’ step, and rename the authorization that you have added.

Note: Once an authorization is created, it will always be available in any Box action. You simply need to select the authorization. You need not create a new one every time.
