Configuring the HCL Digital Experience Web Content Manager plug-in for Watson Content Hub

You can configure a new plug-in, the HCL Web Content Manager plug-in for HCL Watson Content Hub, and integrate Web Content Manager as a Digital Asset Manager service. This plug-in allows assets that are stored in Watson Content Hub to be used in the context of Web Content Manager and presented through Web Content Manager pages. The rendering of these resources uses the Content Delivery Network that comes with Watson Content Hub.

Before you begin

Note: When you present assets that are integrated through the Web Content Manager plug-in for Watson Content Hub, the renditions capability of the Web Content Manager authoring template is not supported in CF15.
