Question: Sugar Logic Formula for Random Character?

Hello, is there any Sugar Logic Formula to automatically generate random alphanumeric code on a specific length?

For example:

Record #1: 

Code Generator Field: A123BX3

Record #2

Code Generator Field: X12B1A2

Kindly advise, thank you everyone.

  • There is no such a feature OOTB, but it can be implemented by custom sugarLogic Formula.

    We frequently implement sugarLogic formulas ondemand. Let me know if you would like to have it done accordingly.

    Kind regards

  • Hello ,

    Instead of developing CRM with new functionality and ensure true randomizing, I would suggest receiving a random value from the specific services that may provide them for free or a small fee.

    E.g. I used Logic Builder configuring tool to configure getting a random string with given parameters (e.g. endlish letters + digits) from a well-known RANDOM.ORG service for free and put the random string into the Name field for the newly created CustomA module record.

    Here is how it works:


    Here is the flowchart design that implements a logic hook with an external call to RANDOM.ORG.
    You may read it by following the white line:


    If you like this Sugar-configuring-instead-of-developing approach, you may register for RANDOM.ORG and let me know the module and field name to populate with a random value, so that I could configure it in the Logic Builder cloud environment (https://logicbuilder.integroscrm.com) and get a zip generated for you with a click
