The Cloudinary Connector

The Cloudinary-Akeneo PIM integration provides a solution for connecting your Cloudinary rich media assets to your products in Akeneo. The Cloudinary connector seamlessly connects Akeneo with the Cloudinary Digital Asset Management (DAM) solution, bringing an array of additional functionalities and features, from centrally storing and managing files to automation and optimization of digital assets.

You can take advantage of Cloudinary's advanced media-management (Cloudinary DAM) features below to manage your product media before linking it with Akeneo.

  • Efficient and rapid upload
  • AI-based content analysis
  • Cross-team collaboration
  • Full control of metadata
  • Advanced search
  • Folders and collections for access control and collaboration
  • Dynamic transformations of imagery and video
  • Extensible APIs for integrating with existing workflows

Here are just some of the features the Cloudinary connector brings:

Extension of management capabilities. You can take advantage of the creative media optimization and transformation capabilities when linking assets stored in Cloudinary DAM to product data managed in Akeneo.

Linking of assets in bulk. With the Cloudinary Upload API and custom-built SDKs, you can programmatically link your assets to the products in bulk through asset tags, saving time and effort.

Preview of linked media. Akeneo practitioners can conveniently view Cloudinary-stored media in Akeneo Asset Manager that’s directly linked to a product.

Designed for seamless integrations. 

There are three ways in which you can connect Akeneo to Cloudinary.

Individual asset links to Akeneo. With Cloudinary’s Akeneo app for DAM, you can manage your products’ media assets through Cloudinary DAM and link them with the relevant products in Akeneo.

Bulk asset links to Akeneo. You can conveniently link assets in bulk to Akeneo with Cloudinary APIs and tags.

The Media Library’s Chrome extension. Manage media assets with Cloudinary DAM and link to them from Akeneo.


Both Cloudinary and Akeneo are outstanding tools for managing media, notably for e-commerce. The availability of our new Akeneo App as an integral part of the Cloudinary DAM makes for sound, efficient division of labor: management of assets with Cloudinary and management of product data with Akeneo.
