A bit development needed

About outgoing triggers

The integration process has two ways to interact with magnolia. One is the way out from magnolia. Here are some examples:

  • You want to send a newsletter subscriber to a marketing automation tool
  • You want to activate a social media post after a page was published
  • You want to add all form entries in a CRM

For that you need to develop a custom trigger. This could be in the publishing workflow module for example with a custom webhook or in the magnolia form module. If you use your system as a headless system you probably consider doing this directly within the frontend.

A bit more development needed

About incoming actions

The second way is to execute an action within magnolia based on an outside trigger. Possible scenarios are:

  • Automate page creation from an outside trigger mostly social media
  • Upload an image in the dam from a trigger in dropbox or google drive
  • Create a post based on a doc in google docs

To integrate this you need to add a custom REST Endpoint within magnolia which end up in a customized action inside magnolia cms.
