How to passthrough a USB device to Ubuntu in Gnome-Boxes

I need to try ROS on Ubuntu18.04. My laptop has Fedora 32, I need tocreat a Ubuntu 18.04 VM in Gnome-Boxes. Everything works well until I need a usb device to be passed to the VM. How can I configure the Gnome-Boxes to passthrough the USB devices? I can do this feature in VirtualBox.
Thanks in advance.

Are you using a flatpak version of Gnome-boxes? I am not sure that USB device redirection has ever worked for that. https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gnome-boxes/-/issues/236
