Brightspot CMS User Guide

Performing integrated searches in Brightspot


In addition to searching for items in Brightspot, you can perform an integrated search for items from services such as Vimeo and YouTube. Items you discover through integrated searches are read-only. If you want to modify them, you need to import the items into Brightspot.

Federated search


To perform an integrated search:

  1. In the search panel, enter a search term, and from the content-type filter, under External Types, select an external content type. Brightspot displays matching items.
