Shutterstock Images

The Shutterstock plugins enable federated searches of Shutterstock 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. See Federated search and import for more information.

Note that there are two Shutterstock plugins, a feature plugin and a content plugin. The feature plugin is required, as it provides federated searches of Shutterstock 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 Shutterstock resources into Brightspot, the Shutterstock content plugin must also be enabled.

The Shutterstock plugins require the following:

  • Shutterstock enterprise account, allowing for any Brightspot user to retrieve Shutterstock images.

  • Consumer Key and Consumer Secret to configure the Shutterstock feature plugin. To find these values, go to your Shutterstock My Apps page, then click the listed application.

    If you have not yet created your application in Shutterstock, note that the configuration must include a hostname for OAuth authorization and a callback URL, for example, https://<domain>/shutterstockAuthorization.
