Integrate with Bloomreach

Are you using the Bloomreach Experience Manager and do you want to add your Bynder assets to your BloomReach content? The integration makes sure your Bynder content is always automatically up-to-date by using the latest version of the assets. Allow your content creators to seamlessly integrate the Bynder media they have access to. Find out below how you can connect both platforms and make full use of this integration.

How to install and configure the module?

Before installing the module, contact your Customer Success Manager to discuss the following:

  • Make sure a custom CDN is set up for your portal.

  • Check if automatic invalidation can be enabled for your CDN or review the cache control options.

  • Identify the public derivatives you would like to make available in the Bloomreach Experience Manager. Contact your Customer Success Manager or Onboarding Manager for assistance.

  • Check whether your portal taxonomy facilitates users to easily find the assets they need.

Once you're good to go, you can start setting up the integration. Find detailed installation and configuration instructions here. The three Bynder attributes below need to be configured when setting up the module.
