Amazon S3 Integration Overview
Contentstack's Experience Extensions offer a variety of ways to integrate third-party applications, such as Amazon S3, directly into your headless CMS. You can set up the extension to fetch content (images, files, and so on) from your Amazon S3 account and insert it in entries of a content type.
Using a Contentstack Custom Field, you can embed and display information of your S3 bucket items from your Amazon S3 account directly in the CMS environment. You just need to add the extension in your entry and access your S3 files and documents, all without leaving your CMS.
