Common Questions

To use Contentstack in your workflow, you will first need to connect it with Flow. 

To do this, drag any Contentstack action listed under Contentstack service on the canvas. In case of configuring Contentstack triggers, double-click on the Start icon on your canvas and select the Contentstack service. Then click on the Add New option listed under Connect to Contentstack field in the configuration window. You will be redirected to a connection window where you can use the Login or Auth Token option under the Select Credential Type field to create a new connection for your Contentstack account.


If you select the Login option, you would need to enter the following details: 

Email Address: Enter the email ID of your Contentstack account. 

Password: Enter the password for the specified email ID. 


If you select the Auth Token option, you would need to enter the following details:

Auth Token: Enter the auth token for your Contentstack account. 

To retrieve the auth token of your account, you need to hit a POST call for a session URL of your account. Follow these steps to do so:

Step 1: Copy the link, paste it in the POSTMAN app, and select the method as POST.

Step 2: Under the Body tab, click the raw radio button and select the JSON (application/javascript) option from the drop-down menu.

Step 3: Paste the following code in the POSTMAN editor space:


"user" : {

"email" : "Your_contentstack_account_email_ID ",

"password" : "Your_contentstack_account_passowrd "



Step 4: Enter the email ID and password of your Contentstack account in the code and click the Send button.


Step 5: On clicking the Send button, you’ll get a response for the POST call. Scroll down through the app and search for the auth token in the output.

Once you have entered the token, click on the ADD button. Your entered credential will be automatically verified and on successful verification, a new connection will be added under the Connect to Contentstack field. Once added, this connection will be available in all Contentstack actions and triggers.
