Example - creating a print template

The Print template entity is a ZIP package containing .cshtml, .json, and .css files defining the structure of the PDF file.

Note

To configure Content Hub, you must either be a superuser or have the necessary permissions granted to you through user group policies.

In the following example, you create a ZIP package to print Recipe content types from the Sitecore Content Marketing Platform (CMP) to a PDF template.

The PDF output should contain:
