Auto Tags

The SharinPix Auto-tag feature is used to automatically tag images with one or more specified tags upon image upload.

This feature can be configured through the following methods:

Setting up the Auto-tag through the SharinPix Global Settings

The Auto-tag feature can be configured using the SharinPix Global Settings as follows:

  • Open the SharinPix Global Settings. To do so, from App Launcher, search for SharinPix Settings, then click on the button Go to administration dashboard to open the global settings
  • On the SharinPix Global Settings, select Settings from the top menu bar, then click on the button labeled as Edit Organization
  • Next, under the Tags section, select the tag to be automatically applied to all newly uploaded images from the list next to the field labeled as Auto-tag
  • Click on Update Organization when done to save your changes


  • By configuring the Auto-tag feature in the global settings, the tag used will be applied to all images uploaded to standard SharinPix albums unless a customized SharinPix permission has been assigned to specific albums 
  • Only one tag can be selected when configuring the Auto-tag feature in the SharinPix Global Settings 
  • If the Auto-tag drop-down menu is empty, it may be because you have no tags available yet
  • Tags having the public attribute set to true will not appear in the drop-down as these are used for sharing images outside of Salesforce

Setting up the Auto-tag using a SharinPix Permission record

The Auto-tag feature can be configured using a SharinPix Permission record as follows:

  • From App Launcher, type SharinPix Permission
  • Click on the button New to create a new SharinPix Permission record
  • Next, under the Tags section, enter the tag(s) to be automatically applied to newly uploaded images for the field labeled as Auto-tag. If you intend to use multiple tags here, use the semicolon symbol (";") to separate them as follows:
  • Select the other desired abilities if needed and click Save when done
  • Next, assign the created SharinPix Permission record to the desired SharinPix standard album or your custom album


For more information about the SharinPix Permission object and how it is configured, refer to the following article:

SharinPix Permission object


  • Using a SharinPix Permission record, multiple tags can be applied in the Auto-tag feature. The tags should be separated by semicolons
  • The value(s) inserted for the Auto-tag field should correspond to the tags' Name

Implementing the Auto-tag feature in SharinPix Parameters (Developer-Oriented)

The Auto-tag feature can also be implemented using SharinPix Parameters for customized albums.

The code snippet that follows demonstrates how the Auto-tag feature has been implemented for a customized SharinPix Album in a Visualforce page using the SharinPix Parameters:

<sharinpix:SharinPix parameters="{'abilities':{'{!CASESAFEID($CurrentPage.Parameters.Id)}':{'Tags':{'Land':{'fr':'Terre','en':'Land'},'Sea':{'fr':'Mer','en':'Sea'}},'Access':{'image_upload':true,'image_tag':true,'image_list':true,'see':true}},'tags':{'auto_tag':'Sea'}},'Id':'{!CASESAFEID($CurrentPage.Parameters.Id)}'}"/>
Click to copy

In the above example, the tag, Sea, is being used as the auto-tag.

You can also specify multiple tags in the SharinPix Permission as follows:

<sharinpix:SharinPix parameters="{'abilities':{'{!CASESAFEID($CurrentPage.Parameters.Id)}':{'Tags':{'Land':{'fr':'Terre','en':'Land'},'Sea':{'fr':'Mer','en':'Sea'}},'Access':{'image_upload':true,'image_tag':true,'image_list':true,'see':true}},'tags':{'auto_tag':['Sea','River']}},'Id':'{!CASESAFEID($CurrentPage.Parameters.Id)}'}"/>
Click to copy


  • The value(s) inserted for the Auto-tag field should correspond to the tags' Name.

Configuring the Auto-tag feature using SharinPix Tokens or URLs

The Auto-tag feature can be configured to be used within the SharinPix Mobile app. This is done by appending the auto_tags parameter to the URL as shown below: 


  • The auto_tags parameter takes as value(s) the tag(s) Name(s)
  • If multiple tags are being used, their names should be separated by semicolons ";"
