Centralize Your CMS Content with Image and Document Types

With image and document content types, you can organize your content without leaving the CMS app. Create, manage, and share your work—all in one place.

Where: This change applies to Lightning Experience in Enterprise, Performance, Unlimited, and Developer editions.

Who: To create content, you must have a contributor role in that CMS workspace.

How: Managing your Salesforce CMS content just got easier with image and document content types. When you add content to a workspace, you can choose to either upload a file directly from your desktop, or link to an external URL.


For URL links, make sure the domain you’re using is allowed by your org so that your users can access your content.

Redefine the content experience for your users without worrying about any record limits, because images and documents don’t count towards content record limits. As your business grows, so can your content.


Review the guidelines for however many files you can store in your org. Any content that you add counts towards your org’s storage limit.

Your content lives in the homepage of your CMS Workspace. Here, you can search by title for an image or document you added to your workspace, check the draft status of your items, and grow your community with new content to suit your business needs.

You can find images that were previously stored in the Asset Library in the CMS workspace where they were used. Now, you can see what other content references an image with an at-a-glance Used By card on the image detail page. (1) Include images already in your workspace in a news article or any custom content without leaving the CMS app. Publish your images to view and select them from the content detail page. Or, publish images directly when you add a new image from a news or custom content type.

Used By card is in the lower, right corner of the page.

Updating your content with images is easy. Publish a new version of an image and all content that references it is updated too. Unpublish an image and all content that references it no longer displays the image. The at-a-glance Used by card on the image details page shows where an image is referenced. You can still publish a blog post with a reference to an unpublished or deleted image. We'll display a message in the authoring detail page to let you know that the image reference isn't available without holding you back from publishing your content.
