Box

Since Camel 2.14

Both producer and consumer are supported

The Box component provides access to all of the Box.com APIs accessible using https://github.com/box/box-java-sdk. It allows producing messages to upload and download files, create, edit, and manage folders, etc. It also supports APIs that allow polling for updates to user accounts and even changes to enterprise accounts, etc.

Box.com requires the use of OAuth2.0 for all client application authentication. In order to use camel-box with your account, you’ll need to create a new application within Box.com at https://developer.box.com. The Box application’s client id and secret will allow access to Box APIs which require a current user. A user access token is generated and managed by the API for an end user.

Maven users will need to add the following dependency to their pom.xml for this component:

<dependency>
    <groupId>org.apache.camel</groupId>
    <artifactId>camel-box</artifactId>
    <version>${camel-version}</version>
</dependency>

Connection Authentication Types

The Box component supports three different types of authenticated connections.

Standard Authentication

Standard Authentication uses the OAuth 2.0 three-legged authentication process to authenticate its connections with Box.com. This type of authentication enables Box managed users and external users to access, edit, and save their Box content through the Box component.

App Enterprise Authentication

App Enterprise Authentication uses the OAuth 2.0 with JSON Web Tokens (JWT) to authenticate its connections as a Service Account for a Box Application. This type of authentication enables a service account to access, edit, and save the Box content of its Box Application through the Box component.

App User Authentication

App User Authentication uses the OAuth 2.0 with JSON Web Tokens (JWT) to authenticate its connections as an App User for a Box Application. This type of authentication enables app users to access, edit, and save their Box content in its Box Application through the Box component.

Box Options

The Box component supports 19 options, which are listed below.

Name Description Default Type

clientId (common)

Box application client ID

String

configuration (common)

To use the shared configuration

BoxConfiguration

enterpriseId (common)

The enterprise ID to use for an App Enterprise.

String

userId (common)

The user ID to use for an App User.

String

bridgeErrorHandler (consumer)

Allows for bridging the consumer to the Camel routing Error Handler, which mean any exceptions occurred while the consumer is trying to pickup incoming messages, or the likes, will now be processed as a message and handled by the routing Error Handler. By default the consumer will use the org.apache.camel.spi.ExceptionHandler to deal with exceptions, that will be logged at WARN or ERROR level and ignored.

false

boolean

lazyStartProducer (producer)

Whether the producer should be started lazy (on the first message). By starting lazy you can use this to allow CamelContext and routes to startup in situations where a producer may otherwise fail during starting and cause the route to fail being started. By deferring this startup to be lazy then the startup failure can be handled during routing messages via Camel’s routing error handlers. Beware that when the first message is processed then creating and starting the producer may take a little time and prolong the total processing time of the processing.

false

boolean

basicPropertyBinding (advanced)

Deprecated Whether the component should use basic property binding (Camel 2.x) or the newer property binding with additional capabilities

false

boolean

httpParams (advanced)

Any of the parameters can be provided in either the endpoint URI, or dynamically in a message header. The message header name must be of the format CamelBox.parameter. The inBody parameter overrides message header, i.e. the endpoint parameter inBody=myParameterNameHere would override a CamelBox.myParameterNameHere header.

Samples

The following route uploads new files to the user’s root folder:

from("file:...")
    .to("box://files/upload/inBody=fileUploadRequest");

The following route polls user’s account for updates:

from("box://events/listen?startingPosition=-1")
    .to("bean:blah");

The following route uses a producer with dynamic header options. The fileId property has the Box file id and the output property has the output stream of the file contents, so they are assigned to the CamelBox.fileId header and CamelBox.output header respectively as follows:

from("direct:foo")
    .setHeader("CamelBox.fileId", header("fileId"))
    .setHeader("CamelBox.output", header("output"))
    .to("box://files/download")
    .to("file://...");

Spring Boot Auto-Configuration

When using box with Spring Boot make sure to use the following Maven dependency to have support for auto configuration:

<dependency>
  <groupId>org.apache.camel.springboot</groupId>
  <artifactId>camel-box-starter</artifactId>
  <version>x.x.x</version>
  <!-- use the same version as your Camel core version -->
</dependency>

The component supports 20 options, which are listed below.

Name Description Default Type

camel.component.box.access-token-cache

Custom Access Token Cache for storing and retrieving access tokens. The option is a com.box.sdk.IAccessTokenCache type.

IAccessTokenCache

camel.component.box.authentication-type

The type of authentication for connection. Types of Authentication: STANDARD_AUTHENTICATION - OAuth 2.0 (3-legged) SERVER_AUTHENTICATION - OAuth 2.0 with JSON Web Tokens

APP_USER_AUTHENTICATION

String

camel.component.box.bridge-error-handler

Allows for bridging the consumer to the Camel routing Error Handler, which mean any exceptions occurred while the consumer is trying to pickup incoming messages, or the likes, will now be processed as a message and handled by the routing Error Handler. By default the consumer will use the org.apache.camel.spi.ExceptionHandler to deal with exceptions, that will be logged at WARN or ERROR level and ignored.

false

Boolean

camel.component.box.client-id

Box application client ID

String

camel.component.box.client-secret

Box application client secret

String

camel.component.box.configuration

To use the shared configuration. The option is a org.apache.camel.component.box.BoxConfiguration type.

BoxConfiguration

camel.component.box.enabled

Whether to enable auto configuration of the box component. This is enabled by default.

Boolean

camel.component.box.encryption-algorithm

The type of encryption algorithm for JWT. Supported Algorithms: RSA_SHA_256 RSA_SHA_384 RSA_SHA_512

EncryptionAlgorithm

camel.component.box.enterprise-id

String

camel.component.box.http-params

Custom HTTP params for settings like proxy host

Map

camel.component.box.lazy-start-producer

Whether the producer should be started lazy (on the first message). By starting lazy you can use this to allow CamelContext and routes to startup in situations where a producer may otherwise fail during starting and cause the route to fail being started. By deferring this startup to be lazy then the startup failure can be handled during routing messages via Camel’s routing error handlers. Beware that when the first message is processed then creating and starting the producer may take a little time and prolong the total processing time of the processing.

false

Boolean

camel.component.box.max-cache-entries

The maximum number of access tokens in cache.

100

Integer

camel.component.box.private-key-file

The private key for generating the JWT signature.
