Version: November 30, 2023

This page contains definitions and details on features, SLAs, limits, and more associated with Contentful Pro subscription.

Pro features

  • Connected spaces - Ability to enroll spaces in Orchestration, to reuse content and content models across spaces. Connected spaces are those which consume content or content models from other spaces. Spaces that provide the source content or content models do not count towards plan limits.

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

  • Environment governance - Ability for space admins to control which users have access to each environment in a space.

  • Preview localization - Enables users to work in additional locales by providing more flexibility in building preview URLs.

  • Reference view - Ability for editors to see every cross-linked entry and asset for a particular entry in a single view, and also apply bulk actions.

  • SSO - Ability to provision, de-provision, and manage the privileges of Contentful users through a SAML-based Identity Provider (IdP) used by the customer. Includes a configuration module for setting up SSO in the Contentful web app.

  • 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.

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

  • Workflows - Ability to create a series of stages for content entries to progress through during the publishing process.
