Giphy

The Giphy plugins enable federated searches of GIPHY directly from the search panel.

There are two Giphy plugins:

  • Feature—This plugin provides federated searches of GIPHY. These resources are retrieved as read-only and are not imported into Brightspot.
  • Content—Imports GIPHY resources into Brightspot so you can add or change metadata.

The Giphy plugins require the following:

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