Giphy Images

The Giphy plugins enable federated searches of Giphy images directly from the Brightspot search panel. External content retrieved from a third-party repository can optionally be imported into Brightspot and used as any other asset. For more information, see Federated search and import.

Note that there are two Giphy plugins, a feature plugin and a content plugin. The feature plugin is required, as it provides federated searches of Giphy images. These resources are retrieved in an external data type format, and can only be viewed in Brightspot as read only. If you want the capability to import Giphy resources into Brightspot, the Giphy content plugin must also be enabled.

The Giphy plugins require the following:

  • Giphy enterprise account, allowing for any Brightspot user to retrieve Giphy images.
  • API Key to configure the Giphy feature plugin. To find these values, go to your Giphy Apps page.
