Custom Content Management API development
Overview of custom CMA development

For stable production functionality, it typically makes more sense to build a custom Content Management endpoint via code, rather than entirely through editorial configuration. An endpoint class can ensure that a fixed set of APIs are exposed with configuration that should not change between different environments.

Implementing custom CMAs
  1. Create a new Java class extending ContentManagementApiEndpoint.

  2. Implement required methods:

    • getPathSuffix—appended to /graphql/management/ to create the path where the API endpoint is available.

    • getEntryFields—objects wrapping Dari record types used to generate the schema and expose APIs.


public class FooContentManagementApiEndpoint extends ContentManagementApiEndpoint {

    protected String getPathSuffix() {
        return "foo"; // API endpoint is available at path '/graphql/management/foo'

    public List<ContentManagementEntryPointField> getEntryFields() {
        return Arrays.asList(
               new ContentManagementEntryPointField(Foo.class, true),
               new ContentManagementEntryPointField(Bar.class, true));
