"Share this app" button

Hello BB developers! I have a problem that cant resolve.. I want to put a button on my application for sharing a link that addresses to my application blackberryWorld. I read that "appworld://content/xxxxxx" works, but the problem is that I have not uploaded the application yet, then I have not assigned an id for my application. Is there another way to route my application without knowing the id so you do not have to upload it to a button that does nothing?

Re: "Share this app" button

Go into the vendor portal and create (if you haven't already) the product entry for the app. That will assign an integer product id, which is the xxxxxx that you need there. If you've already created it, go to Manage Products and click on the pencil icon for that entry, and the product id will be one of the first things you'll see on the form that appears. They're always at least 8 digits these days... can't really miss it.
