Can I upload automatically only when an Event matches a query condition?

Yes, when you specify the Auto-upload Query Filter, only the Events that match that query are uploaded automatically.

  1. Expand the advanced options on the Boxes page at:


  2. Enter the Auto-upload Query Filter and press the Save button:

  3. Alternatively, use Change Box settings to apply the Auto-upload Query Filter to all streams of the Box:


The corresponding API field is named event_auto_upload_query_filter and can be supplied in the CSV import as well.

See the related advanced article How can I minimize false negatives when using Auto-upload Query Filter.

NOTE: This feature currently supports only single daily time ranges, however once the Auto-upload Query Filter supports complex recurring schedule rules, it will replace the Schedule. Also, only Box Pro and Box VM (not Box) have the ability to filter based on human or vehicle, so please don't include those query terms in the filters of the smaller Box.
