I ’m looking after the rollout of Atlassian to our company as a whole and we want to tie in box.comvery closely using the INK filepicker for JIRA and Confluence. As a large enterprise, we scrutinize security very closely and I would like to understand a bit more how you handle shared links to box.com.
I would like to validate our understanding of your products' behavior:
For instance, we've setup shared links so that by default a "company-only" shared link is created (versus an open shared link). Presumably, when a shared link is created through the INK Filepicker plugin for JIRA, it's a default (company-only) shared link. Is this correct?
So, we assume that the INK Filepicker for JIRA is using the default company setting as opposed to creating an open and unauthenticated shared link.
I would be great if you could react to these assumptions/questions above and validate them (or else point me to the details on how you handle it differently).
Hi @abhishek mittal
As far as I know - the links are with a CDN-based copy of your Box file, vs direct to Box - so as a separate pipe - well, it is a separate pipe/link.
Indeed I agree with you that you want a pipe directly from Box in the large corporate scenario/use case that you describe.
The most advanced solutions on the market for Box to Atlassian integrations - that have been built to scale (i.e., load-tested in Box labs) and with security in mind, foremost, were built initially years ago, directly with Box by AppFusions, and I suggest you try these.
Their feature sets, in short, include previewing, cascading folder lists displays, embeding files in Confluence pages, editing files from Box, searching Box files from Confluence, linking Box files to JIRA issues, etc. The are up to date with Box's latest V2 APIs. Click on the links above for more info!
We continue to feature add to these plugins however - and in fact will have a new version of the JIRA plugin due out next week.
Get an eval at email@example.com .. also references or if any further questions.
BTW - I can see the CDN use case, and AppFusions is coming out with something soon to support this use case.
The use case is more for convenient access from multiple repos - which is very different than the use case that the above plugins are supporting (which is secure direct links to the source files, always).
It's officially Tuesday, which means it's officially time for another tip to help you better navigate this space we call the Atlassian Community. 😄 I got a great question from community member, Sa...
