Installing and Enabling the Box Integration - SPA


**Note: This content is intended for system administrators and is technical in nature**

The Box integration allows you to synchronise and access your Box documents within a client record in Practifi.


Two Box accounts are required to install the Box for Salesforce integration: 

  • Box Service Account:
    • A Box account with Admin or co-admin privileges at a minimum.
    • To be used exclusively for integration purposes and does not belong to an individual end-user. 
    • Owns the Salesforce content on Box and makes API calls from Salesforce to Box for the entire enterprise.
    • If you don’t already have a Box Service Account, create one (i.e., add as a managed user).
  • Box User Account: to link a user’s Salesforce account to their Box account.

Note: The Service Account and User Account must be two different accounts (although both can be managed users in your enterprise). The integration will not allow you to log in with the same account in both places.

You will need Practifi System Administrator permissions to install and enable the Box integration:

  1. Install the Box for Salesforce app(The Installation/User Guide is a useful resource to get started).
