Box Relay

Box Relay

Box Relay is a workflow automation application that enables Box power users to automate and accelerate business processes centered around content. Currently, there are two API endpoints developers can use with more planned to be released in the future. Both were created to work directly with manual start flows.

For more information on how to use these endpoints, refer to our blog post.

Required Scopes

The following scopes must be enabled for an application before use of Box Relay's endpoints.

Depending on the selected authentication method and enterprise's settings, your application may require Admin authorization or re-authorization before successful use of any newly selected scopes.

Rate Limits

Please see our rate limit guide for more information.


Due to the feature parity, it may be useful to familiarize yourself with Box Relay functionality using the Box web app before leveraging the API. As with all API endpoints, we recommend testing via developer sandbox environment to eliminate the risk of impacting production content.
