Tutorial: creating a recipe
Create a recipe in StackConnect
Jahia Stack connect works with jExperience and jCustomer to connect you with the rest of your technology stack, from productivity tools and databases to a broad selection of backoffice and martech applications. Use StackConnect to build automated workflows that trigger actions throughout your stack based on events in Jahia, or update profiles in Jahia based on events and data from across your stack.

- A Jahia system with jContent, jExperience and jCustomer configured with at least one page and at least one recorded visitor
- A StackConnect login with the Jahia connector for your version of Jahia and a connection to Jahia from your StackConnect account
