More dynamic experiences using a GraphQL API 

Connecting different products to Optimizely graphicGraphQL is a query language that developers can use to search and deliver content anywhere, enabling more dynamic content experiences. Our new GraphQL API further extends the capabilities of our best-in-class CMS by enabling flexible content delivery across channels and applications: 

  • Easily reuse content from your website to build native applications—such as a mobile app
  • Provide highly customized search experiences for site visitors, increasing the chances that they find the content they’re looking for, fast
  • Create dynamic content blocks, such as a “related articles” content block that displays the five most recent articles that have the same tag or content type as the article a visitor is currently viewing  

We introduced our GraphQL API in Beta last year, and we’re now making it available on a limited basis in select regions. Speak to your Customer Success Manager to get access to the GraphQL beta.
