Bynder is a digital asset management platform (DAM) that allows you to store, manage and organize your digital media files. Marketing and development teams are the primary users of Bynder.

Bloomreach Content integrates with Bynder, which links your Bynder Universal Compact View with our Experience Manager in the CKEditor. After successful integration, you can upload and publish media asset files directly from your Bynder account into your Bloomreach Content-powered website.



Currently Bloomreach Content supports Bynder Universal Compact View library version 3.2.3



Please make sure to have an account with Bynder. Once you login into your account, follow the below steps to get your Client ID and Client Secret details:

  • Click the "settings gear" icon to launch the dropdown menu.
  • In the dropdown menu, hover over "Advanced Settings."
  • Click "Portal settings" in the "Advanced Settings" menu.
  • In the "Portal Settings" page, Click "OAuth Apps" on the left navigation bar.

Field extension field

An Field extension field uses the document field extension point to display a custom field type. When a Bynder integration is available (e.g., Bynder Marketing), document editors can add a Field extension field to the desired content type and link it to the integration using the Integration drop-down.

Once the Field extension field is correctly configured, editors can include Bynder digital media assets directly within the document using the Select asset(s) button rendered in the editing template .

If you’ve configured Bynder with the proper credentials, you should see the Bynder Compact View dialog.

CKEditor Field

A CKEditor field is used to store fully featured rich text content, stored as HTML markup within the document. To have the Bynder integration as part of the CKEditor field, manually enable the CKEditor Bynder plugin needs as part of the ckEditorAppendedJson field, like the following:

More specifically, you can use the snippet below

{ "extraPlugins": "iframedialog,bynderassetpicker", "pluginConfigs": { "bynderassetpicker": { "integrationId": "<INSERT_YOUR_INTEGRATITON_ID>" } } }

If everything goes well, you should be able to see the Bynder icon as part of the CKEditor!
