Using the Search Files/Folders Action
To use this action in your workflow, you need to connect it to ThingWorx Flow. To create a flow, do the following:
1. Drag the Search Files/Folders action under the Box connector to the canvas, place the pointer on the action, and then click or double-click the action. The Search Files/Folders action window opens.
2. Edit the label name, if needed. By default, the label name is same as the action name.
3. To add a connection, refer the Authorize Box section from Box connector topic.
4. In the Search For field, select the type such as file or folder that you want to search.
5. In the Search Text field, enter the name of the file or folder to search.
6. In the Search Context field, enter following details:
Folder IDs—Click Add to select or enter the folder ID to limit the search to a specific parent folder.
Click Add to enter multiple folder IDs.
File Extensions—Comma-separated list of file extensions to be included.
7. Click Done.
Sometimes, even though the file or folder exists in the Box account, this action might return a file or folder not found message on execution. In that case, you might have to upload a file to the folder to force indexing. Usually, newly added or changed files and folders are indexed and available via Box search in less than 10 minutes. However, the current service load determines the indexing time and it may take more than 10 minutes in some cases. For more information, see the Box API Reference.
