Welcome to Owl Intranet Engine


We have developed a REST API in collaboration with Share US in the Netherlands, that allows a remote Application to sign in to the Doxbox DMS, Add files, Update files, Get Files etc.

The API has limited functionality at this time and can/will be extended in the future.  Based on Customer feedback and API Usage we will extend its functionality as needed.
