Hello everyone,
Unfortunately, I don't have much experience with InDesign, but I should ask myself a clever question.

Is it possible to connect Indesign to a database from which data is then imported?

Or are additional modules needed here and if so, which ones can you recommend?

It is about connecting our PIM to InDesign in order to then create catalogs from the data.

We are using the InDesign Cloud 

 

Thanks 🙂

In addition to the plugins/products that @Eugene Tyson mentioned, I would suggest that you look into CEP extensions in case you are looking to develop a solution for yourself. If your PIM/database system can be accessed via a HTML app then you could design a CEP extension which is a sort of HTML app that runs inside InDesign. Once you get the data from PIM/database inside your CEP extension you can then pass on the data to InDesign using jsx script.

Have a look at the following to understand CEP in a little more detail
