Cloudimage Kontent.ai connector



You need to have a Kontent CMS setup. https://kontent.ai/

Step 1. Add custom element

Content model (left hand side) > Create new > Custom element (right hand side). You will then have the below view.

Hosted code URL: https://scaleflex.cloudimg.io/v7/plugins/cloudimage-kontent/cloudimage.html?func=proxy

Parameters are the information that Kontent-Cloudimage needs to accelerate your images. See below:

    "token": "your_token",
    "baseURL": "your_base URL",
    "lazyLoading": true/false,
    "mgmtApiKey": "your Management API key",

Step 2. Create new content with this Kontent-Cloudimage Custom Element

Content & asset (left hand side) > Create new > Chose type: Cloudimage. Chose add/remove some images, publish. You will then have the below view.

After publishing, it will look like below. The URLs are Cloudimage accelerated.

Step 3. Set up a preview

Here, you can find a tutorial on how to set up a preview: https://kontent.ai/learn/tutorials/develop-apps/build-strong-foundation/set-up-preview/

Go to Settings > API Keys. For this, you will definitely need your Project ID. You may also need your API Key (depends on what you want to do, but for simple things Project ID is enough).

Write a client app that utilizes the Delivery API

Recall that Kontent have 3 set of APIs that you can interact with

Delivery APIs in plain HTTPS form can be taken from https://kontent.ai/learn/tutorials/develop-apps/get-started/postman-collection/ , imported into POSTMAN

For the 3 content items that comes out of the box, Kontent already have an example client app, which we can imitate.

After writing and hosting your client app, go to Settings > Preview URLs and define your Preview URL formats.

See how Kontent defined their preview URLS for their example app

Codename, URLSlug & ItemId are obtained as follows:

Once you done all the above, you can preview by clicking Preview
