Content Management API


The Content Management API can be used to get, create, and update a single document, page, or resource bundle at a time, or to get and link translations of existing documents, pages, and folders.


Development project scope

All operations except translation operations are performed within the context of a developer project, and all writes are performed on an unpublished variant of a page or document associated with the project.

Translation operations are performed on published and unpublished variants of the documents and pages.


Translation operation limitations

When linking existing content as translation, make sure that the content is not being edited during the linking operation. Otherwise linked content could be overridden and translation links could be lost.

When linking a document or page that is part of a project, make sure not to switch between project variants in the CMS for the given document or page (i.e. do not switch from the project variant to core, or vice versa). This action would get the previous version of the document or page from the version history which does not have the translation link created by the linking service. This is a known limitation which will be removed in future releases.


The Content Management API is a protected management API and requires authorization using a token. See API Authorization for instructions on how to obtain and use a token.

Updates and conflict prevention

When updating an existing resource, you must include the entire resource including all its existing unchanged properties. It's not possible to update only a subset of properties. Read more about how to handle updates and conflict prevention.

API Reference

Developer tools

To aid developers in working and learning the Content Management API, the following tools and resources are provided:

Public Environment

If you don't have access to a Bloomreach environment yet, you can use the Public Developer Environment. Follow the instructions to retrieve an authentication token and easily explore the APIs.

Run in Postman

Import the Content Management API collection and try the endpoints in Postman. The collection provides many examples of how the endpoints can be used.

The only thing needed to use the Postman collection is to setup the environment variables:

  • brxHost: the URL of your Bloomreach Content environment
  • x-auth-token: the Authentication token
