Api to get a folder structure tree including sub-folders and its files

I have to interact with our system(Salesforce) to Box. For this, we have to design a solution where we have to traverse a Specific folder(Box Folder) to get all its related nodes(Including its Sub-folder and files).

 

UseCase:  

StartingFolder
    Folder1A
        File1B
        Folder2B
            Folder1C
                File1D
            File2C
        Folder3B
        File4B
    Folder2A
        Folder1B
            File1C
        Folder2B
            Folder1C
                File1D
        File2B
    Folder3A
        File1B

Note: In this use case we have to traverse all subfolders and fetch all included files count(In this case - 7).

 

We are using Apex(Salesforce) for interacting box API's.

Re: Api to get a folder structure tree including sub-folders and its files

Hi @aaddyyss90 , I am not aware of Apex(Salesforce) mentioned by you but in general API's are not provided for individual usecases and you would have to build your logic in the integration itself. In the current usecase mentioned by you I dont see any other approach other than recurrsively calling List Items in Folder for each subfolder and processing any file when you find them. Hope this helps
