Access CMS Content with a Connected App
A connected app is a framework that enables an external application to integrate with Salesforce using APIs and standard protocols. To share CMS content with a system that doesn’t have a direct integration with CMS, develop a connected app. A connected app can access the CMS content and import it to the other system.
Before you develop a connected app, complete steps 1 and 2 in Display CMS Content in Other Systems.
To develop a connected app that copies CMS content to another system such as Marketing Cloud or Heroku, perform these steps.
- Authenticate a Connected App with CMS
- Retrieve CMS Channels with a Connected App
- Retrieve CMS Content with a Connected App
- Search CMS Content with a Connected App
After you retrieve the CMS content, the remaining steps vary based on the system that you want to share content with. Converting the CMS content to another format is a possibility. To determine the necessary steps, read the receiving system’s documentation.
