Brightspot Integrations Guide

Brightspot Integrations Guide

One of the most powerful features in Brightspot is the ability to integrate with third-party applications. Brightspot offers two kinds of integrations—built-in integrations and premium integrations.

  • Built-in integrations—As the name suggests, built-in integrations come with Brightspot. To use these integrations, you simply plug in an API key and configure them according to your organization's needs; however, you can further build on these integrations if you need to.
  • Premium integrations—Premium integrations are a starting point for developers to build upon, depending on license access. As such, they are not available out of the box.

As integrations are enabled, they will be available in various menus and fields within the user interface. If an integration is disabled, it will not be visible in Brightspot, other than in Sites & Settings (where you can enable it and other integrations). For example, the image below shows the external search filter with the Getty Images integrations enabled and disabled.

If you have already enabled an integration, but decide to disable it at a later time, you must do so in Sites & Settings. While some integrations are only available at the Global level, others are available at the site level as well. Make sure to disable the integration at each level where it is enabled. Failing to do so can cause integrations enabled at the Global level to be inherited at the site level.
