This page contains the necessary details to connect your Cloudinary DAM to your CloudCannon sites.

In a new browser tab or window, open your site settings in CloudCannon. Navigate to Files / Assets. Under Link DAM, select New DAM.

Choose Cloudinary as your DAM type and enter a name - this will be used to identify your DAM in CloudCannon.

Copy the Cloud Name, API Key, and API Secret from your Cloudinary dashboard into the respective fields in CloudCannon.

Once you have filled out all the fields, click Authenticate to save and close the modal. Then, click Link DAM to connect the DAM to your site.

If all went well, you should now be authenticated with your Cloudinary DAM. Next, you’ll want to connect it to one or more of your sites.
