Drupal Connect

With Drupal Connect you can easily and quickly place assets (images and other media objects) from CELUM ContentHub directly into your Drupal CMS content types via «Asset Picker». The title can be taken from a CELUM information field.

The connector extends the Drupal Media module with a celum:connect entry for selection & transfer of CELUM assets. For each placement it can be decided whether the asset should be copied into the Drupal file system or linked to the CELUM DAM system. If required, copying can be prevented in the configuration, which ensures that in Drupal, e.g. for documents, the latest asset version is always available for download.

The user-friendly configuration options allow a seamless integration and thus fast, optimized work. Through the connection of CELUM ContentHub and Drupal CMS, the used assets in the DAM are marked with a «Drupal Bullet», which directly shows the media responsible which assets are used. Different bullet icons can be specified for downloading and linking the assets. This prevents accidental deletion of media that is under use.

The Direct Download extension is included as part of Drupal Connect for the where-used list.

Configure the API Key of the CELUM user, the ID(s) of the CELUM Root Node(s) to be used and the «Asset Picker» version. In addition, the desired download format for using the assets in Drupal can be defined per media type.

For the two usage types (download or link) a name can be defined, which is used as «node-ref» value. The corresponding information field is defined in the configuration of the Direct Download extension.

For marking the usage in CELUM we recommend our plug-in Asset Marker.

New: Multi-site applications are now also supported. Depending on the base URL, different CELUM nodes can be made available to the editor. Furthermore, it can be ensured that no direct download takes place for links, but instead the brix:anura detail view is displayed. This provides a consistent look & feel for the visitor on websites where both Drupal Connect is used to place individual assets and CELUM ContentLand is used to integrate asset download areas.

System Requirements:

  • Drupal version 8 or higher
  • 1 licensed API connection (for CELUM Asset Picker)
  • Extension Direct Download (included), if the where-used list should be saved
Transfer CELUM assets directly into your Drupal CMS
