How to Get Started with Contentful on Zapier

The first thing you'll need to do to get started with hooking up Contentful with Zapier and the hundreds of services we work with is adding your Contentful Account to Zapier. When the time is right, we'll ask you to add your Account:

After clicking the “Connect a Contentful Account” button, we will ask you to give your new Account a name or label, which is just a handy name for you to recognize within Zapier. It doesn't matter what you name it.

Next you will be asked to log into your Contentful account, if you are not already logged in.

After successfully logging into your Contentful account, you will be asked to authorize Zapier to access your account. You must select “Authorize” to integrate Contentful with Zapier.

Common Problems with Contentful

Language localization issues#

Right now, the "Create Entry" action in Zapier only works with en-US. If you try to use another locale, you will probably see an error that says something like Invalid field locale code "en-US", has to be one of "XX"

A short term fix you might try is adding en-US as a valid locale for the content type.
