AP Images

The AP plugins enable federated searches of Associated Press 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 procedure.

There are two AP plugins:

  • Feature—This plugin provides federated searches of AP images. These resources are retrieved as read-only and are not imported into Brightspot.

  • Content—Imports AP images resources into Brightspot so you can add or change metadata

The AP plugins require the following:

  • AP Images enterprise account, allowing for any editor to retrieve AP images.

  • API Key to configure the AP feature plugin. For more information, see AP Images Content API and contact an AP Sales Representative.
