About Cross-space references
Cross-space references is a feature by Contentful that allows you to link content across spaces and environments. Using references, you can create reusable content and update multiple spaces and environments with the same piece of content.
NOTE: To use the Cross-space references feature, you must have at least two spaces within your organization.
Access the feature
Important: To access the Cross-space references feature, you must first enable orchestration for the spaces you want to link content across. For more information on how to enable spaces for orchestration in the web app, see About content orchestration.
To access the Cross-space references feature:
Log in to the Contentful web app.
Navigate to the "Home" tab.
Click Manage references. The "Content model" tab is displayed.
You can use Cross-space references in the web app, or using the Content Management API.
3 reference fields per content type
3 distinct spaces/environments per reference field
50 linked entries per field, over all locales
At least one content type per source/space
Cross-space references are only resolved using the Content Delivery API
