Create a New Stack

To create a new stack, perform the following steps:

  1. Login to your Contentstack account and navigate to the organization in which you want to create a stack.
  2. Click on the + New Stack button located at the top-right corner of the page.
  3. In the Create New Stack dialog box that appears, enter the following details:
    1. Name (mandatory): Name of the stack
    2. Description (optional): Relevant description for the stack
    3. Set Master Language (mandatory): Select a master language that you want to set as the primary language of the stack
  4. Click the Create button.

You can create as many stacks as needed.

Note: At any given point of time, an organization user can create only one stack per minute.

Since this is a new, empty stack, you will be prompted to either create or import a content type.

Additional Resources: You can have a look at our list of guides under Create Content Types section that covers how to create a content type, what fields you can add, what field properties you can apply to them, field visibility rules, content type labels, and other actions.
