Static content bundling service

Level: beginner

The purpose of the static content bundling service is to reduce the page loading time. Static content includes *.js-files and *.css-files that are located in the Creatio file system and are required to display the Creatio UI in the browser. Learn more about static content in a separate article: Packages file content.

Ways to optimize the page loading time:

  • Minification. Reduces the size of *.css, *.js, and *.html files. This implies removal of commented out code as well as superfluous line breaks, leading and trailing spaces. This reduces the size of the original file by 10-20%.
  • Bundling i. e., generation of bundle files. Optimizes the performance by combining the static files of the same type into a single bundle file. Reduces the number of requests.

Most web applications are delivered with minified and bundled files. Since the Creatio configuration and static content can change during the life cycle, the service runs minification and bundling automatically when necessary.


  • ContentService. The service that minifies and bundles Creatio files. Deployed independently of Creatio. ContentService can be paired with ContentWatcher or work independently. Learn more in a separate article: Static content bundling service.
  • ContentWatcher. A utility that interacts with Creatio files and ContentService to ensure timely minification and bundling. Learn more in a separate article: Static content bundling service.

To improve performance, the application is configured to generate minified bundle files by default.
