Adding Metadata to Multiple Files at One Time

At times, Box customers may look to update a number of files with the same metadata. If a user uploads a number of files that share a common characteristic, such as photographs taken of the same event, they may want to add metadata to the photos marking this event. Box does not support this mass updating of metadata through the Web Application at this time. 


In order to add metadata to multiple files at once, please explore our Developer Documentation about Creating Metadata. Using this API functionality, users can write a simple script to update the required files with the desired metadata values. 


If you run into issues with this process, please contact Box User Services with any questions.
