GraphCMS Integration

GraphCMS is the first GraphQL native Headless CMS. With their API-first CMS you can build, enrich, unify, and deliver your content across platforms. Would you like to use your Bynder assets in GraphCMS? Save yourself time and instead of uploading your assets twice, add your Bynder assets directly to your GraphCMS content using the GraphCMS integration.

By making use of the Bynder reference URLs the integration ensures that the latest version of your Bynder asset is always reflected in your GraphCMS content. Once you've uploaded a new asset version to Bynder the latest version will be automatically available in GraphCMS.

The integration is built, maintained and supported by GraphCMS.
