Get started with the Contentful source!

Create your OAuth app

If you need to figure out how to access the necessary credentials, head here for a detailed walk through.

Enable the Source

Let's first select the source from the list of taps in hotglue for this flow.

Go ahead and search for the Contentful source and click the Connect button.

Now that we have selected Contentful as a source, we are going to put in your Contentful access token and Space ID. If you don't know where to get these credentials, you can learn where to find them here.

Once you've entered your credentials, click the Save button.

And that's it! You have successfully enabled the Contentful integration.

Configure Mapping

You now have added Contentful as a data source for your flow. Next, you need to configure the mapping for your Contentful data.

Click on the field map button to get started.

You can now select the data you want to pull from Contentful. To edit the fields for an object you want to pull, use the corresponding gear icon.

You can now select specific fields identified in each object to map in the Field Editor. Once you have selected which fields you want, you click confirm.

Once you are done mapping any of the fields you want, you click save, and you have finished configuring your mappings!

Obtain your Contentful credentials

The first thing that you need to do to get your Contentful credentials is to head to your Contentful account. Make sure that you go ahead and sign into Contentful. If you do not have a Contentful account, you can create one for free.

Once you're logged in to Contentful, head to the Settings option on the top of the page.

From the resulting drop down, select the API Keys option.

On this page, go ahead and select the Content management tokens.

On this page, go ahead and select the "Generate personal token" button.

Now go ahead and name your token something similar to "hotglue token" and then click generate.

You now have your Contentful access token! The next step is to get your Space ID. It is pretty simple.

Your Space ID should be in the URL of your Contentful environment. Go ahead and grab it and paste it into hotglue. You now have your Contentful credentials!
