This tutorial shows you how to install and configure Cloudinary in Jahia. Cloudinary provides cloud-based image management which is fast and easy to setup.

Installing and configuring Cloudinary

This tutorial shows you how to install and configure Cloudinary on the prepackaged Digitall website. If you need help installing the website, see Creating a web project in Jahia in the Headless React and GraphQL app with Jahia tutorial.

Install and deploy the Cloudinary Integration module from the Jahia AppStore. If you are not familiar with this process, see Installing a module for more information.

Note: Configuration requires a Cloudinary account. If you do not have an account, you can create one by visiting their registration page.

To install and configure Cloudinary:

  1. After enabling the module, in Edit mode go to Site Settings>Cloudinary. The following page displays:
