Can we expect a new aversion with JWT authentication? This would avoid the need of users introducing their credentials in a Box lofin screen.

Hi Tiago,

On my current project the JWT authentication was a requirement, so we had to develop this feature ourselves. Thanks to the amazing contribution of João Almeida that created the extension to handle the signed Tokens we will soon post Box Connector v2 that will include this authentication type. We're aiming to publish this new version in two weeks time.


Cheers Gancola:

I look forward to version 2 of the Box Connector, and the ability to use: 

Authentication with JWT

I need this so I can run Box file uploading in the background...without user login required.
