SharinPix Secured Token Setting

SharinPix Secured Token will be used to be able to create a token that expires. The expired token will be used on the token viewer component. => Using SharinPix Secured Token, the Token Viewer component will not use the token stored in the Salesforce field directly, but will instead use it to generate a new one that expires. This adds a layer of security as the token stored on Salesforce, which may be non-expiring, is not exposed in the user's browser.

Steps to configure the SharinPix Secured Token:

  1. Go to Salesforce Setup
  2. Open Custom Metadata Types
  3. Click on Manage Records for SharinPix Secured Token Custom metadata type
  4. Insert a label and name
  5. For the Object name parameter, insert the object API name on which the SharinPix Token Viewer component has been added.
  6. For the Field name parameter, insert the field API name of the field containing the token to be expired.
  7. In the Expiration parameter, insert the amount of time in minutes for the token to live. The maximum allowed is 10080.
  8. Check the Active checkbox to activate the setting.
