Frequently asked questions
WHAT IS SENSENET IN A NUTSHELL?
sensenet is a content repository with an API-first approach, which can be used as a back-end system for your own solutions. Within this concept, the custom solutions that are developed separately (like a single-page app) communicate with the sensenet repo through APIs.
WHAT IS A HEADLESS CMS?
A headless CMS is a content repository where you can store your content and reach them via RESTful API. It is reactive: another system requests the content as and when it is needed. Thanks to its API-first concept, it is easy to integrate with and gives more freedom to the developer when choosing framework for a project.
- loosely connected, often interchangeable components
- easy to integrate with
- fast and flexible content delivery
- few publisher and developer dependencies
- simple deployment
- good for content centric solutions
WHAT PROBLEMS DOES SENSENET SOLVE?
sensenet could serve as a solid base for any content-centric solution using enterprise-grade features, making the development process significantly easier. Its most important features are the permission system, the collaboration tools (office online editing, versioning), search, preview, and webhooks.
WHAT DO PEOPLE MAKE WITH SENSENET?
sensenet can be used to build basically anything, from public websites through document management systems to mobile apps.
Who CAN GET THE MOST OUT OF SENSENET?
Developers and development companies who want to have a solid base to build on. The main concept is that these custom solutions are developed separately (in any language), communicating with the sensenet repo through APIs. Marketers can also benefit from the rich feature set thanks to the admin ui where collaboration tools helps the daily work.
For whom we do not recommend sensenet?
For people looking for an out of the box solution which only needs configuration and no development.
WHERE IS SENSENET HOSTED?
In the SaaS model, sensenet is hosted in our environment (in Hungary), so we take care of all hosting-related tasks.
CAN I SELF-HOST/ DOWNLOAD SENSENET?
Apart from the SaaS model, you can also have sensenet installed on-prem with the annual licensing model (self-hosting, maintenance, and upgrade).
sensenet can be installed from NuGet package and the full source code is available on GitHub.
DO I HAVE ACCESS TO the SENSENET BACKEND CODE?
No, in the SNaaS model we restrict access to some parts of the solution in order to maintain system integrity, resulting in flawless upgrade and maintenance processes.
WHAT IS A CONTENT ITEM?
In sensenet, everything is content. A content item can be a user, a task, a workspace, a document, anything!.
IS MY DATA BACKED UP?
IF I ACCIDENTALLY DELETE MY DATA, CAN IT BE RESTORED?
All the backups we do are for internal use only to keep your data secure even in case of a system failure. Recovery after an accidental data loss is not covered by the subscription. Each case should be assessed individually. Please contact us in case of such an issue.
CAN I BACKUP MY DATA OFFSITE?
You, as the repo owner, cannot do ordinary, offsite backups, since you have no access to the server. You can still export your data from the repository.
