GO FAQs

Here are some of the questions customers ask when evaluating Brightspot GO as their CMS solution.

What is the difference between Brightspot and Brightspot GO?

"Brightspot" is the name of our company, as well as the name of our platform, upon which we have built the Brightspot Enterprise CMS as well as complimentary products like Brightspot Assignment Desk and Brightspot Media Desk. "Brightspot" also incorporates our Delivery organization, which builds world-class digital experiences and custom CMS extensions and integrations for our customers. "Brightspot GO" is the SaaS version of our enterprise CMS—designed to dramatically accelerate the launch and management of enterprise digital projects as well as substantially reducing the dependency on development resources required to accomplish them.

How many environments come with a Brightspot GO license?

Simply put, as many as you need. Typically, users of the Brightspot GO SaaS CMS only require a single production environment for publishing activities. We are happy to talk to you around specific needs for different use cases around CMS migrations, development testing and more.

Does Brightspot GO include hosting?

It sure does, and we consider one of the many significant benefits of our offering. Your Brightspot GO license includes hosting on one of the world’s most comprehensive and widely used cloud platforms, up to 5T of monthly bandwidth and storage at no additional cost, 24x7 monitoring and security and automatic upgrades to ensure you are always on the most current version of Brightspot and seamlessly able to access all features and functionality as they are released.

Do I have to use Brightspot GO's front ends?

No, you can use any front end you’d like, whether that’s a React FE, simple HTML, CSS and JavaScript, or hanging on to your newly launched look-and-feel.

Brightspot GO technical FAQs

Which APIs does Brightspot GO support?

Brightspot GO supports GraphQL and RESTful content delivery and management APIs and webhooks to make it easy to connect to Brightspot from front-end experiences built in whatever language, framework or environment you prefer.

Brightspot offers two types of configurable GraphQL APIs. They are the Content Management and Content Delivery APIs, commonly abbreviated as CMA and CDA, respectively. With some very light configuration, GraphQL schemas and APIs are automatically generated and updated with each change to relevant data models and business logic.

Visit our developer documentation for more information:

Does Brightspot GO support webhooks?

Using Brightspot, you can create webhooks in two ways. The first way is the standard way you create a webhook—through configuring APIs; however, Brightspot also allows webhooks to be easily created via its editorial UI.

In the image above, the user is able to simply navigate to a section within Brightspot CMS, select REST Management API from a dropdown list, and then see an interface with all necessary elements laid cleanly out for them.

After entering a name for the API and defining the API's URL (not the same as the webhook's URL—a conversation for another day), the user can click "Add Webhook," which pops open a content edit form where they can define the URL to which metadata is sent as well as what event triggers the webhook.
Topics are the events discussed above. Many of these come out-of-the-box with Brightspot: Publish, Conversation, Translation, Workflow—and quite a few more than those. Depending on which topic the user chooses to "listen" to, the UI morphs to add deeper configuration functionality.

From those examples alone, outside apps can receive notifications when something is published, when a comment is made in the conversation widget, when a translation has transitioned to any number of states, or when an asset progresses through a workflow.

All of this is highly actionable information for an editor.

Content filters allow a user to dig down with even greater granularity as to which specific event triggers a notification. Maybe the user only wants the webhook for a particular site in their multisite environment, or maybe only for the notification to trigger the first time a specific event occurs.

All possible.

As software-as-a-service platforms continue to enjoy widespread popularity across the internet, webhooks remain a valuable way to get these platforms to communicate, and more importantly, ensure the users of these platforms are well aware of relevant changes the moment they are made. And with Brightspot, you get the tools to make webhooks however you prefer to do so.

How do I create my own content types with Brightspot GO?

With GO, you can customize your front end however you’d like. You can likely get most of the way there with our theme editor and no-code, in-CMS customization tools. To go further, you can add CSS within Brightspot GO, giving you a low-code option to customize your front end(s). If you have developers and choose to, you can also create a professional software project and edit the entire front-end bundle of JavaScript, CSS and Handlebars templates to take your customization as far as you’d like to go.
