The "Upload file via file content to Box" action is a useful way to upload a new version of a file, if you supply the ID of the file that you want to update.
However, when using the Box API directly, you can also specify a new filename when you upload a new version. See the "name" body parameter at https://developer.box.com/reference#upload-a-new-version-of-a-file-1
This allows the version history to accurately track the correct file name for each version in its version history if the name changes when uploading a new version.
The "Upload file via file content to Box" action has a "file name" field but, as stated in that field's description, that field is only used when uploading a new file.
Please can you enhance the "Upload file via file content to Box" action to allow renaming of an existing file while uploading a new version?
Our product team would have to add a new action or enhance our current action. We’ll keep you posted for any new updates regarding this concern.
Meanwhile, you can use a Custom Action which allows you to build your own Box action with an HTTP request. You may refer to this link for more information (https://docs.workato.com/developing-connectors/custom-actions.html).
