SharinPix automatic token generation (Developer-oriented)


In this article, you will learn how to use a trigger to automatically generate a token on an object.



For this demo, we will use the WorkOrder object.

Firstly, we need to create a field on the WorkOrder object that will hold the generated token.

For the new field:

  1. Data type: Text Area (Long)
  2. Field Label: SharinPix Token

Creation of the Trigger

In this section, we will create a Trigger on the WorkOrder object. 

Name the Trigger SharinPixWorkOrderTrigger and use the code snippet below to create it:

trigger SharinPixWorkOrderTrigger on WorkOrder (after insert, before update) {
    sharinpix.Client clientInstance = sharinpix.Client.getInstance();
    String token;
    List<WorkOrder> updatedWOrders = new List<WorkOrder>();
    for (WorkOrder wOrder : {
        if (String.isBlank(wOrder.SharinPix_Token__c)) {
            token = sharinpix.Client.getInstance().token(
                new Map<String, Object> {
                    'Id' => wOrder.Id,
                    'exp' => 0,
                    'path' => '/pagelayout/' + wOrder.Id,
                    'abilities' => new Map<String, Object> {
                        wOrder.Id => new Map<String, Object> {
                            'Access' => new Map<String, Boolean> {
                                'see' => true,
                                'image_list' => true,
                                'image_upload' => true,
                                'image_delete' => true
                        'Display' => new Map<String, Object> {
                            'tags'=> true
            if (Trigger.isInsert) {
                updatedWOrders.add(new WorkOrder(
                    Id = wOrder.Id,
                    SharinPix_Token__c = token
            } else {
                wOrder.SharinPix_Token__c = token;
    if (Trigger.isInsert) { update updatedWOrders; }

The Trigger SharinPixWorkOrderTrigger:

  1. Generate a token
  2. Stores the value of the token generated in the field SharinPix Token

Below is the Apex Test Class 'SharinPixWorkOrderTriggerTest' of the above Apex Trigger.

public class SharinPixWorkOrderTriggerTest {

    public static void testWorkOrderTrigger() {
        WorkOrder wOrder = new WorkOrder(Subject='Visiting Green Field');
        insert wOrder;
        List<WorkOrder> expectedWorkOrder = [
                                                SELECT Id, Subject, SharinPix_Token__c
                                                FROM WorkOrder
                                                WHERE Id = :wOrder.Id
                                                LIMIT 1
        System.assertEquals('Visiting Green Field', expectedWorkOrder[0].Subject);
        System.assert(expectedWorkOrder[0].SharinPix_Token__c.length() > 0);

Find the SharinPix Token

A SharinPix Token is now generated whenever a new WorkOrder is created. This token can be found inside the SharinPix Token field of the newly-created object.


The above token can be used to open the SharinPix album within the SharinPix mobile app using the app's online mode feature. For more information on how to make use of the online mode feature, refer to the following article:
