Kentico is a cloud-based content management system that allows teams to easily collaborate on creating websites, online stores, and community sites. Memsource supports versions 11 and 12 of Kentico.

Kentico connector allows the downloading of source content and uploading of translations to/from Kentico.

Kentico Connector 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 so Submitters can add files to requests directly from the online repository.
  • Use Automated Project Creation to have Memsource automatically create new projects when a change in the last modified date is detected for monitored files or an entire list.
    • 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).
