Migration for legacy Croydon and BHCC websites.

dev-master 2021-04-28 12:22 UTC


YAML files with previous and new entity names, field name mappings, and where appropriate migration of data from/to different fields.

Running these Drupal 8 migrations can be done in two ways:-

The first is how they are presently set-up. Migrating from one database to another. This requires the SQL based migration source available at https://www.drupal.org/project/migrate_drupal_d8 The additional work required would be to add missing migrations for entities not documented such as Users.

The second way is to migrate within the exisiting database. The source class for these migrations is based on the Entity API and is in Drupal core. The source in the YAML wants to be changed from d8_node to content_entity:node and so forth.

Both methods at the moment only handle the currently live revision of an entity.
