Advanced Configuration - Customizing your SharinPix components with SharinPix Permissions


The SharinPix Album abilities available in the SharinPix Permission record are also available on the SharinPix Global Settings

When no SharinPix Permission is assigned, the abilities set in the SharinPix Global Settings will be applied to all album components by default.

However, for security reasons, we strongly advise using a SharinPix Permission to control album abilities instead of the SharinPix Global Settings.

1. Create a SharinPix Permission record for an album component

To create a new SharinPix Permission record, follow the steps below:

  • From App Launcher, type SharinPix Permission
  • Then click on the button New
  • Next, in the Information section, enter the name of the permission. The SharinPix best practice is to name the permission All to indicate that this permission provides all basic album abilities.
  • You can leave the description blank since it is optional.
  • Ensure that the Album option is selected as we are creating a permission record for an album component.

2. Configure the component abilities on the SharinPix Permission record

All basic album abilities are set to true by default when creating a new SharinPix Permission record. You can, therefore, save the permission right away if you want to keep the default parameters.

You can still review the abilities and modify them as desired as depicted below.

Please note that each checkbox has 3 states:

  • True: When a checkbox is selected, this will enable the ability on the component.
  • False: When a checkbox is left blank, this will disable the ability on the component.
  • Default value: When a dash is present in the checkbox. This means that the ability value will reflect the value set in SharinPix Global Settings by default. 

3. Assign the permission to an album component

To assign the SharinPix Permission to an album component:

  • Save the permission record.
  • Copy the permission's name (All in our case).
  • Go to the Lightning App Builder page on any record page containing the SharinPix Album component.
  • On the album component, paste the permission's name in the Custom Permission Id or Name parameter.
  • Save the changes when done.
