 public static String downloadBoxFile(String fileId){
    BoxAuthParser bparser;
    Http h = new Http();
    HttpRequest req = new HttpRequest();
    string endPointValue = 'https://api.box.com/2.0/files/';
    req.setHeader('Authorization', 'Bearer '+bparser.access_token);
    HttpResponse res = h.send(req);
    return res.getHeader('Location');

The above method should help you.The GET request header has a location and that returns the URL for download of the file .

I want the link of file in response body so using this link i can download uploaded file on dro.box. I want link of uploaded file in dropbox using rest api. –  sandeep Aug 4 '14 at 5:39

This is the endpoint to get all files from box.com


With file Id you can get file download information in json format.

In JSON you will get download link of each file associated with its other information by which you can download them. @sandeep –  Ashwani Aug 2 '14 at 8:46

@regal The body will be empty .A location variable in header is needed for download. –  Mohith Shrivastava Aug 2 '14 at 9:47
