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:
- 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.
To learn more about how to use cross space app capabilities, connect content with orchestration, or build a custom app, check out the resources below:
Apps across spaces
An app can now be installed in multiple environments at a time. It allows an app to act across environments and spaces it is installed in, rather than limiting access and availability to content and other data in a single environment.
Connect content with orchestration
Content Management API
Webhooks notify a person or service when content has changed by calling a preconfigured HTTP endpoint. You can use this for notifications, static site generators or other forms of post-processing sourced from Contentful. Every webhook request includes the following predefined headers: Consuming services can use the X-Contentful-Topic header to determine the type of the payload included in the webhook call without looking into it.
Build custom apps with the App Framework
In this course, you’ll learn about available tools for extending, customizing, and integrating Contentful with your tech stack. Specifically, you’ll learn how to connect Contentful to outside services using webhooks and webhook templates, explore available public apps, and build a simple custom app using Contentful App Framework. By the end of this course you should be able to: - Apply the Contentful philosophy on a flexible and custom tailored approach when designing your tech stack. - Create custom webhooks and use webhook templates to connect to different services. - Explore available public apps and choose ones that meet your needs. - Describe the Contentful App Framework, available tools for creating custom apps, and how apps are managed in Contentful. - Build a simple custom app using the App Framework.
