- Select Box. To use Box, you must enable the HTTPS protocol before or after installing Incorta.
Connect to and authorize Box in the Cluster Management Console (CMC). After logging in, go to Tenants > Tenant_Name > Miscellaneous to add the following parameters:

- Box Client Secret
- Restart Incorta.
- Select Authorize. A new browser will open to authorize you in the application portal using your email address and password (which is not accessible by Incorta Analytics).
- Once authorized, select Select to locate the data source on Box.
Ensure that file names inside the drive are unique. Incorta does not read files with same name (including recovering a deleted file with the same name as an existing file).
