API / Content Services / Tree

Tree Content that is organized into folders can be retrieved using the Tree API. The Tree API lets you pull back an entire path-based folder and file structure of content within a single API call.

The Tree API is deal to support a variety of cases including: retrieval of multiple deeply-nested paths within a singl

API / Security / Security

Security Cloud CMS provides two ways to describe access rights to things: Object-level / role-based authorities Team / role-based authorities With object-level / role-based authorities, you assign a principal (either a user or a group) a role against something. For example, you might give Joe the CONSUMER role against a content node. When Joe then interacts with the content node in the future, he will do so with the CONSUMER role which will allow him to "read" the node. With team / role-based au

Cloud CMS Architecture

Cloud CMS has two clusters that we run for customers who host apps with us. One cluster is for the "app server" tier (*.cloudcms.net) and the other is the "API" tier (api.cloudcms.com). The app server cluster consists of Node.js servers, and the API is a Java-backend that is stateless and implements the full REST API: As such, the API doesn't manage connections directly. Any invocation to it is a one-shot where each request contains everything needed to assert the user's identity and proceed wit

What is an Identity vs a User?

The concept of an Identity and a User is distinct in Cloud CMS. They are separate things. Essentially, a User holds the name, email address and other properties about a user and an Identity holds the password. A User may optionally have an identity associated with it but this isn't required. For any users that you want to give the ability to log in, you'll need to have an identity created and associated for them. This is as easy as editing the user and setting their password. When a password is
