DAM libraries

Overview

A digital asset management (DAM) system helps you store, share, and organize all your digital content in a centralized location.
Sitefinity supports integration with the following DAM systems: 

  • Cloudinary
  • Frontify

To use these DAM systems, you have to install the corresponding nuget package first. For more information, see Sitefinity CMS NuGet packages repository.
In addition, you can integrate with another DAM provider by leveraging the newly added extension points. For more information, see Custom DAM provider and thumbnails.
With these integrations you use your digital content directly from your DAM systems in your content blocks and related media fields, no files are stored  in Sitefinity CMS. 

NOTE: Sitefinity CMS can work with only one DAM system at a time. In case multiple providers are configured and all of them are enabled only the first one in the list will be used. To start working with a different DAM provider, all other DAM providers must be disabled
