3rd party API integration and data display


Is it possible to integrate 3rd party APIs in the CMS?

There are 2 parts to it,

  1. Consuming 3rd party APIs for information
  2. Displaying the information in layouts

We are using CMS version 1.7.9.


Yes it is possible to do that - usually with either:

  • a custom module to consume the 3rd party API and show it
  • an integration application to consume the 3rd party API and put it in a Layout/DataSet

You’d need 1.8.0 for both options - you can look at the advanced page of the manual for more details.
