I have a user, who is not part of my organization, that requires ftp access to one of my folders. Is there a way i can set him up without making him a managed user?
I'd rather not have to use one of my licenses for a external consultant.
Can anyone clarify the following please :-
If our external collaborator also has an enterprise account as do we , can we then invite them as a external collaborator to allow them to automatically load files into our box org via FTP?
If this isn't possible is there any other way an external user can automate a process to add files into our box org so as our application can pick up the files?
Welcome to the Box Community and thanks for your first post on the forum!
Yes. External users can use FTP if the Enterprise account they belong with has FTP enabled. However, on your second question, Yes, but box doesn’t have a prebuilt tool. You have to make your own tool or process for automating uploads or you can write a program to use our API.
