Box Connector

Box Ingestion Connector for Elasticsearch, Elastic Cloud, and Elastic Cloud Enterprise

Box lets you secure, share and edit all of your files, from anywhere.

Box makes it possible for everyone to work together, regardless of location. Users’ files are stored in the cloud so that everyone on the team can access, edit, comment and share any of the files in real time, from any device.

The BA Insight Box Connector for Elasticsearch crawls content in Box and creates an Elastic Index that enables users to search Box and other content across the enterprise that is crawled and indexed in Elastic - all from a single modern user interface. This eliminates the need to log onto different systems to perform individual searches, and it also takes the guess work out of trying to figure out which systems hold the information the user requires.

Box Connectors for Elastic

A single consolidated and highly scalable Elasticsearch index referencing Box, along with content from other repositories, is surfaced as a single result set.

The Box Connector:

  • 1

    Search results can only be seen by users who have sharing/access privileges assigned to them..

  • 2

    ConnectivityHub provides the Box indexing connector for both full and incremental crawls.

  • 3

    Incremental crawls can be scheduled to happen as often as needed to keep the index fresh. It will extract only content that has changed since the last crawl.

  • 4

    Works with all content in Box.

  • 5

    Indexes with a very high throughput.

  • 6

    Integration does not impact the performance of Box.

  • 7

    The master information is kept in Box with the search index having pointers to it. Therefore, when users click on a search result, they are always working on the most current documents.
