Contentstack is a headless content management system. It provides the infrastructure to create and manage content but it is not coupled to any single presentation layer. It also provides REST APIs to deliver content channels such as websites, mobile apps, devices, marketing kiosks or any digital platform that displays content. All translatable fields (e.g., either Text or Rich Text) are imported for localization unless the field is flagged as non-localizable in Contentstack.

Use Cases

There are a number of use cases for the connector:

  • Project Managers can add files directly to projects from an online repository.

  • Set up the Automation Widget allowing Submitters to add files to requests directly from the online repository.

  • Use Automated Project Creation (APC) to have Memsource automatically create new projects when a change in the last modified date is detected for monitored files or a folder.

    • Selected files are imported the very first time APC runs.

  • The Connector API can be used to automate steps otherwise performed manually through the UI. Webhooks can be used to have Memsource notify 3rd party systems about certain events (for example, a job status change).


Creating more than one connector per stack is not recommended as Contentstack API auth tokens are limited to 20 per stack. If this limit is breached, one of the stack connectors would stop working.
