How to Generate the Public Link for Files in Salesforce?



Share a file with anyone by creating a file link and sending it through email or IM. Creating a link generates an encrypted URL that we can send to any recipient, such as leads, customers, partners, and coworkers. Recipients can be inside or outside of our company. The recipient opens a web-based version of the file that they can easily preview and download. File link recipients can only view and download files.

When we create a public link to a file, anyone who has the link can view and download the file. We can delete the link at any time, and anyone with the link can no longer access the file. If we create a link, only people with the new link can access the file.
