Control multiple content entities in the Developer Portal, including the customization and restriction of specific content.

A content entity is an item of content data, which can consist of text, HTML markup, images, attached files, and other data that is intended to be displayed to site visitors. Content entities can be defined by the core software or by modules. Content entities are grouped into entity types, which have different purposes and are displayed in different ways on the site. Most entity types are also divided into entity sub-types, which are divisions within an entity type to allow for smaller variations in how the entities are used and displayed.

The Developer Portal site contains the following content entity types:
  • API
  • Application
  • Article
  • Basic page
  • Blog post
  • Book page
  • Consumer Organization
  • FAQ
  • Forum Topic
  • Product

Within content entity items the data is stored in individual fields, each of which holds one type of data, such as formatted or plain text, images or other files, or dates. Field types can be defined by the core software or by modules.

Fields can be added by an administrator on content entity sub-types, so that all the entity items of a given entity sub-type have the same collection of fields available. When you create or edit entity items, you are specifying the values for the fields on the entity item.
