  5.  Enter "elastica" in the Individual Application Controls search bar and click the magnifying glass to display the Elastica Securlet entry
  6.  Select the "Available" radio button (Note: Most likely the “Disabled” radio button was enabled) 

At this point, repeat the Box Securlet activation process in CloudSOC as defined in the Elastica TechNote and confirm you have successfully activated the Securlet in CloudSOC If you do not see this "Individual Application Controls" view using your account to follow the process above, you may not have appropriate access as Box has several levels of administration accounts
