Configuring Umbraco

In this step, we're going to:

  1. Install the Enterspeed Umbraco package
  2. Import our demo content
  3. Configure our hostname
  4. Seed content to Enterspeed manually


Installation for Umbraco 7 & 8

Sign into your Umbraco instance and navigate to the backoffice.

In order to send data to Enterspeed, we need to install the Enterspeed Umbraco package. Go to the Packages tab in the top menu and search for “Enterspeed Umbraco source integration”. Select the package and hit install.


For production setups, we recommend installing the NuGet package instead. You can find it here: Enterspeed.Source.UmbracoCms.V7 or Enterspeed.Source.UmbracoCms.V8

Installation for Umbraco 9+

Since Umbraco 9 the "packages installation"-feature from the backoffice has been removed. Because of that, we need to install the following NuGet package:



Go to the Settings tab in the top menu and select Enterspeed settings.

Umbraco Enterspeed Config

  1. Set the Enterspeed endpoint to

  2. Set your media domain (optional).

  3. Insert your API key generated in the Enterspeed-app under “Sources”.

  4. Test the connection and save the configuration afterward.

Your data will now be synced to Enterspeed each time you publish content.


You can view synced data in Enterspeed by navigating to Source Entities and selecting your source (the name you provided when creating it) in the Source dropdown.

Importing content from the demo project

If you wish, you can import the Umbraco content from our demo project.

Importing demo content for Umbraco v9+

Since Umbraco 9 the "packages installation"-feature from the backoffice has been removed. Because of that, we need to install our NuGet package:


The NuGet package will import content, data types and document types required for this demo on startup of your application.

After package installation build and start your application.

Publishing and syncing imported demo content

Publish the site by navigating to the Content tab, and select the Home node.

Then click the arrow on the green "Save and Publish" button in the lower right corner, and select "Publish with descendants".

Check the "Include unpublished content items" option, and click the "Publish with descendants" button.

Publish with descendants

This will publish the entire site, and send the data to Enterspeed.

Go to your Enterspeed-project and navigate to Sources --> Sources entities to verify that the data have synced.

Configuring your hostname

Go to the Content tab and click the three dots next to Home. Click the Do something else button at the bottom and select Culture and Hostnames.

Insert the same domain name as the one you entered when you configured your hostname in Enterspeed.

Sending content to Enterspeed manually

When you click Save and publish in Umbraco, the content will automatically be sent to Enterspeed. But since we just updated our hostname, all of our content now has a new URL, which we need to be synced to Enterspeed. We do this by manually triggering an update.

To send content manually to Enterspeed go to the Content tab in the top menu. Click the Enterspeed content tab and select Seed.

To send published content to Enterspeed, click the Seed button. This will queue a transfer of all your Umbraco content to Enterspeed.
