TESSA Connector for Akeneo 4.0


With this Connector Bundle you seamlessly connect Akeneo with the Digital Asset Management solution "TESSA" (https://www.tessa-dam.com). This provides you with a professional and fully integrated DAM solution for Akeneo to centrally store, manage and use all additional files for your products (e.g. images, videos, documents, etc.) in all channels.

IMPORTANT! Ensure, that your Akeneo API ist working. Tessa needs an API connection to your Akeneo. In some cases Apache is configured wrong, see https://api.akeneo.com/documentation/troubleshooting.html#apache-strip-the-authentication-header.


  1. Install the bundle with composer
composer require eikona-media/akeneo4-0-tessa-connector
  1. Then add the following lines at the end of your config/routes/routes.yml :
    resource: "@EikonaTessaConnectorBundle/Resources/config/routing.yml"

return [
    // ...
    Eikona\Tessa\ConnectorBundle\EikonaTessaConnectorBundle::class => ['all' => true],
  1. Run the following commands in your project root:
php bin/console cache:clear --env=prod --no-warmup
