Box Additional Configuration - Mule 4

Configure the Box Connector Global Element

To use the Box connector in a Mule application, configure a global Box configuration element that can be used by as many Box connectors as needed for your application.

  1. Click the Global Elements tab at the base of the canvas.

  2. In the Global Configuration Elements screen, click Create.

  3. In the Choose Global Type wizard, expand Connector Configuration and select Mule-box-connector Config and click Ok. The configuration screen for OAUTH 2.0 with Authorization Code, grant type displays. This is the only configuration that Box connector supports.

  4. Configure the properties as described here.

    Parameter Description


    The client identifier as assigned by the authorization server when the client application was registered.


    The client application’s client secret.


    The host where Box exposes its API.


    The port at which Box services listen for incoming requests. Default: 443


    The base path of the Box services' base URI.


    The protocol which Box services follow. Default: HTTPS


    The local callback path. Default: /callback


    The HTTP Listener configuration that is used to configure the local authorization URL.


    The redirect URL that is configured in the client application.


    Local authorization URL that is used to initiate an OAuth2 dance.


    The authorization URL to request for an authorization code.


    The access token URL to request for an access token.

    In the OAUTH 2.0 configuration screen, the placeholder values refer to a configuration file placed in the src/main/resources folder of your project.

    You can either enter your credentials into the global configuration properties, or reference a configuration file that contains these values. For simpler maintenance and better re-usability of your project, Mule recommends that you use a configuration file. Keeping these values in a separate file is useful if you need to deploy to different environments, such as production, development, and QA, where your access credentials differ.

  5. Click OK to save the global connector configurations.


Now that you have completed configuration, you can try out the Box Connector Examples.
