About the JSON Viewer app

The JSON Viewer app for Contentful makes it easy to see JSON for an entry directly within Contentful. This allows your developers to see how content will be structured on the Content Management API.

The app adds an entry editor tab which displays the JSON for the entry, and users may select a desired references depth to pass as the include parameter in the request. You can also configure the theme, icon style, and data type display.


  • View the JSON for each entry directly in Contentful
  • Choose desired reference depth
  • Configure the theme and structure for the JSON preview


You will need to install the app and then add it to the Entry Editors for each Content Type where you want the JSON Viewer to show:

JSON Viewer Entry Editors

You can move the JSON Viewer entry editor item to appear in whichever order you want.
