What’s new - API

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

User Management API

The User Management API is now generally available. These endpoints allow organizations to manage their users, teams and their space roles and permissions directly. Enterprise organizations can now integrate the governance of their Contentful users with the rest of their technology stack. Read more in our developer documentation.

User Management API is available for Enterprise customers on current pricing plans.

Environment aliases

Say hello to seamless deployments. Master aliases allow development teams to swap environments serving production data behind the scenes. With environment aliases, Contentful customers have a safer way to roll out content model changes, can initiate instant rollbacks, and adopt fully automated deployment workflows. Learn more about the use of aliases in our concept guide.



After a successful beta period, the GraphQL API is now public. GraphQL is part of the next generation of API design, enabling developers to assemble content from multiple sources and deliver it to exact frontend requirements with a single API call. The GraphQL endpoint offers powerful filtering capabilities and built-in caching, and supports both the content delivery and content preview APIs. The GraphQL API is currently available on Large and Performance space types.
