I have been searching for a connector that will link up Content Hub to Drupal. I found a page in Marketplace, but the links seem to be missing from it so I'm assuming it may be outdated (https://www.sitecore.com/products/marketplace/tap/ch/acquia-drupal-connector). There was a video about it on YouTube, but it's in Japanese unfortunately.

My question is - is there a way to connect Sitecore Content Hub to Drupal the way that it connects to the Sitecore CMS? Is Sitecore Connect the tool to use? If so, does that require a separate license? If not, is there just a generic connector? The info I'm finding online isn't very specific.

This link mentions Drupal, but doesn't indicate which connector to use: https://doc.sitecore.com/ch/en/users/42/content-hub/integrate-with-sitecore--focus-on-integration.html

I am uncertain whether the Acquia Drupal Connector is currently outdated. I suggest that you can check with Sitecore Support/Sales for confirming.

Other than that, there is indeed another approach to link Drupal with Sitecore Content Hub.

Please kindly find this link Drupal Connector for your reference.

And the Drupal related plugins mentioned in the post can be obtained from Iframedialog & Mconnector.

This zip package extends CKEditor for use in creating content in Drupal by providing approved assets in an iFrame, thereby integrating with the Sitecore Content Hub. This extension is implemented through a module and plugin library.

Seems there is only Japanese edition of this current post.

While you can read and follow it with some online translating tools or browswer extension, like Immersive Translate. Also I listed the key steps for your reference.

Installation steps:

  1. Download and unzip the zip package containing the two plugins Iframedialog & Mconnector, and copy the libraries and modules folders to the root directory of Drupal.
  2. Enable the two plugins in Drupal backend.
  3. In the configuration page, add a new toolbar group "Sitecore Plugin" containing Sitecore icon to the CKEditor editor.
  4. Fill in the URL of Sitecore Content Hub in MConnector Settings.
  5. Add Drupal's URL to CORSConfiguration in PortalConfiguration in Sitecore backend.

Usage:

  1. In Drupal, click Add Content, choose Basic page, and click the icon in Sitecore plugin group to select assets from Sitecore.
  2. Click the arrow icon of the asset to create or choose a public link, then click "Select" to import the asset into Drupal.

And Sitecor Connect is a new SAAS DXP product which neede a new licensing, I think.

If you would like to get more info of Sitecore Connect, please try to leave a messag at the bottom form in Sitecore Connect Product or chat with the Sitecore consultant online, and the expert would further help.

Hope it helps!

  • we have unfortunately hit some snags in our project so this part of it has been put off for a while until we can get Content Hub in place to have something to connect to Drupal. I am excited to try it out still. Thank you for asking! I will post an update here once we have one.
