What’s new
We constantly release updates; here are some recent highlights and favorites.
For a full list of new features and improvements, see our detailed ChangeLog.

Cloudinary app

Dynamically delivering images and videos together with your content is now possible with the Cloudinary app in Contentful. This integration allows content editors to select media from their Cloudinary account and publish digital assets across channels.

apps-cloudinary-dialog

The app is a widget that allows editors to select media by browsing asset collections from their Cloudinary account. Assets are directly linked into your Contentful entries and the selected assets can be previewed in Contentful, making it easier to see which content is being used and displayed on an entry.

Netlify app

Static sites makes it easy to build fast, powerful and secure websites and to make content updates to your site even easier, we’ve built a Netlify app, connecting your content in Contentful with Netlify’s static site building functionality. By giving content writers an easier, more transparent process for editing content, they can adapt content faster while retaining control of what’s published on static sites.

The Contentful web app makes it possible to configure make content changes without having to navigate between systems and gives full oversight from previewing to deploying the changes.

apps-netlify-sidebar.0ffd73e12b

Within the Contentful web app, editors can trigger Netlify builds with a simple click in the sidebar and shows the build status in real-time to avoid previewing outdated sites. Additionally, editors can track the progress and the last changes made from within the web app.

Frontify app

Leveraging brand style guides, pattern libraries and design systems is essential for creating a unified brand across all digital touchpoints. With the Frontify app, you can simplify your workflow by accessing your brand assets from within the Contentful web app, ensuring all your content is brand compliant. contentful-frontify

By directly linking your assets in Frontify to your Contentful entries, content editors can easily browse, preview and select assets that live in Frontify.

Image Focal Point app

The Image Focal Point app allows you to set a focal point for an image, which you can use to crop assets and optimize them for different devices and screen sizes, such as desktop, mobile and tablet. Learn more.

Authentication and security improvements

IC-2 Security reporting Contentful has recently released several enhancements designed to help you manage access for teams.

Contentful has successfully become a verified, pre-configured SAML-supporting app in the Okta App catalogue. Contentful organizations can now set up SSO even quicker than before. Learn more here.

Users can also now protect their Contentful accounts through two-factor authentication. 2FA verifies users through an authenticator app such as Google Authenticator, Authy, or Duo Mobile. 2FA can be enabled through user settings in the Contentful web app.

And with enhancements to how admins manage roles and permissions for teams, an Org Admin or Owner can now assign space memberships to a team, which is then inherited by every individual user assigned to that team. This makes it easier for organisations to manage and embrace growth, securely and efficiently giving new team members the right level of access from day one.
