Egnyte Integration Overview
Contentstack’s Experience Extensions feature offers enterprises a variety of ways to integrate third-party applications, such as Egnyte, directly into your headless CMS. As your team creates and manages content in your content management system (CMS), they can access assets from your DAM system.
Using a Contentstack Custom Field, you can embed and display information from your Egnyte account directly into the CMS environment. For example, you can add a custom field extension for Egnyte in your stack that allows you to fetch the files stored in your Egnyte account and display them into a field in your Content Type. Subsequently, while creating entries, you can select one or more files as the input value for the field. This integration can save your team valuable time and avoid the hassle of working in multiple media libraries.
