Known Issues

Certain tiers of Box.com plans include advanced security settings for content creation. One of these settings, under Enterprise Settings | Content Creation | Restrict Content Creation, is a checkbox, Only admins can create and delete first-level folders, files, and bookmarks.

If you check this checkbox, then the SmartDeploy Box Application will not be able to create its folder structure or upload files. In order to use the SmartDeploy Box Application, this checkbox must remain unchecked.
