In this video, you’ll learn how to use the Contentful Content Management API (CMA) end point to fetch a list of environments where a custom app has been installed in your organization. This capability allows you to build and install apps across your content ecosystem enabling apps to connect and access entities and metadata across environments and spaces.

While watching, keep in mind that:

  • To use this feature in existing apps, make sure the version for the CMA JavaScript library "contentful-management" is at least 10.13.
  • You need to have a minimum of two Contentful environments in the same space.
  • You have to be an Admin OR have permissions to create, edit and delete content types in the selected environments.
