Premium features

  • Medium-density infrastructure - Technical infrastructure with twice as much capacity for storing, indexing, and delivering content per organization as our standard infrastructure.

  • Webhook templates - Pre-built connections to popular third-party services and tools allowing space admins to create automated workflows.

  • AWS webhook integrations - Ability to connect directly to 100+ AWS services, including popular services such as S3, Lambda and SQS (supports AWS signature version 4 authentication).

  • Custom roles & permissions - Ability to define granular roles and permissions on space entities per user role.

  • Trial spaces - Temporary and reusable spaces for prototyping new projects or testing premium features separately from your production spaces. Not covered by SLA, and expire after 30 days.

  • SSO - Ability to provision, de-provision, and manage the privileges of Contentful users through a SAML-based Identity Provider (IdP) used by the customer.

  • SCIM integration - Manage user access at scale via SCIM API or integration with select identity providers (IdPs). This feature is only available on Scale and High Availability platforms.

  • Static webhook IPs - Webhook responses are fired from a predefined range of IP addresses allowing customers to whitelist Contentful services in accordance with internal security policy requirements.

  • User management API - A dedicated endpoint for managing organizations, organization memberships, teams and space memberships.

  • Usage insights - A dashboard and a dedicated endpoint reporting daily usage stats for individual APIs (CDA, CMA, CPA) per space and per organization.

  • Teams - Ability to group users into teams. A team can also be assigned space memberships in which case all team members inherit those roles & permissions.

  • Custom aliases - Ability to set up 3 static identifiers for working with space environments. Allows Contentful to be used with automated CI/CD pipelines and supports advanced Q&A scenarios.

  • Embargoed assets - Ability to restrict access to unpublished assets by requiring requests to the CDN to be signed with a valid signature.

  • Advanced caching - Ability to serve cached content until content updates propagate throughout the CDN. This ensures better end-user experience during peak traffic periods.

  • Custom domains - Ability to customize the domains serving content delivery, images, and assets APIs: end users see branded domain, instead of the default

  • Security reporting - Upon request reporting of the findings from penetration tests, compliance certification, and changes to internal security procedures.
