Create Slack Integration Mapping

Create Slack Integration Mapping

Use the POST integration_mappings/slack/:integration_mapping_id call to create a mapping. To make it work, you need box_item and partner_item parameters, which refer to a Box folder and a Slack channel, respectively.

Remember that before the mapping can be created, this service account must be set as a co-owner role on the folder that is being mapped. If you encounter any errors, see the troubleshooting guide.

	partner_item: {

		type: 'folder',

console.log(
    `Slack integration mapping with id ${mapping.id} was created`
);

You can provide options that change the default settings for the created mapping. For example setting is_access_management_disabled to true will disable collaboration management. Slack channel members will not become collaborators on the channel folder and no shared links will be created for channels with 1000+ members.

Create Slack Integration Mapping with Box SDK

Use Box SDK to automatically create the Integration Mapping, including a co-owner collaboration of the service account on the Slack channel - Box folder mapping. To do so, use this script:

const BoxSDK = require('box-node-sdk');
const axios = require('axios');

const integrationMappingsApiUrl = 'https://api.box.com/2.0/integration_mappings/slack'
const boxFolderId = 'PASTE YOUR FOLDER ID HERE';
const slackChannelId = 'PASTE YOUR CHANNEL ID HERE';
const slackOrgId = 'PASTE YOUR SLACK ORG ID HERE (CHANGE TO WORKSPACE ID IF NECESSARY)';
const developerToken = 'PASTE YOUR DEVELOPER TOKEN HERE';

let serviceAccountId = '<PLACEHOLDER>';

const client = BoxSDK.getBasicClient(developerToken);

async function postIntegrationMappingSlack(){
    return axios.post(integrationMappingsApiUrl, {
        partner_item: {
            id: slackChannelId,
            slack_org_id: slackOrgId, // change slack_org_id to slack_workspace_id if Box for Slack is installed on the workspace level
            type: "channel"
        },
        box_item: {
            id: boxFolderId,
            type: "folder"
        }
    }, {
        headers: {
            'Authorization': `Bearer ${developerToken}`
        }
    });
}

function isPlaceholder(str){
    return str === '<PLACEHOLDER>';
}

async function addCoowner(serviceAccountId, folderId){
    try {
        await client.collaborations.createWithUserID(serviceAccountId, folderId, 'co-owner')
    } catch (error){
        if(error.response.body.code === 'user_already_collaborator'){
            console.log('Service account already collaborated in the co-owner role.')
        } else {
            throw error;
        }
    }
}

async function logServiceAccountId() {
    try {
        await postIntegrationMappingSlack();
    } catch (error) {
        console.log(`Replace the value of serviceAccountId with: ${error.response.data.context_info.service_account_id} and re-run the script.`)
    }
}

async function createSlackIntegrationMapping() {
    if(isPlaceholder(serviceAccountId)){
        await logServiceAccountId();
    } else {
        await addCoowner(serviceAccountId, boxFolderId);
        await postIntegrationMappingSlack();
    }
}

module.exports = { createSlackIntegrationMapping }

Make sure to replace PLACEHOLDER with the logged value of serviceAccountId.
