Syndicating with Acquia Content Hub

Syndication allows you to leverage content created on one site to other sites in your fleet. The creating site is referred to as publisher and sites receiving content from the publisher are referred to as subscribers. You need to have at least one publisher and one subscriber to be able to syndicate content. You can use one publisher and many subscribers, many publishers to one subscriber, or a many to many approach.


In case you need a website to act as both a publisher and subscriber, Content Hub associates the publisher of specific content to act as the owner of that content. A subscriber cannot act as the publisher of content it does not own.

To begin syndicating content:

  1. Sign in to a publishing website as an administrator.
  2. Go to Configuration > Web Services > Acquia ContentHub > Export.
  3. If you have queued content, this will display the number of items enqueued for export to the Content Hub service.
  4. For testing purposes, click Export Items. When using Acquia Content Hub in production, use a scheduled job to run exports. When the export is complete, the Number of items in the export queue displays 0.
  5. Go to the subscribing website, and select Content. The selected nodes from the publisher display in the content list.

The imported nodes may be different content types, depending on your publishing website. Acquia Content Hub syndicates entities and configuration, which means you don’t have to set up a single content type-the module takes creates them for you.
