Drupal 7 has a much longer lifespan than the (already pushed back) official date, and Drupal 8 has an essentially infinite lifespan because it can update in-place to Drupal 9 easily and the same will be true of Drupal 10, 11, ∞. There's no reason to rush an upgrade— but there's no reason to wait either.
In the previous article we provided a reference of available configuration options for migrate source plugins. In today’s article we are doing something similar for destination plugins. We will present a reference of available configuration options for migrate destination plugins provided by Drupal core and some contributed modules. Knowing which options are available might require some Drupal development knowledge. By providing this reference it should make the process of writing migrations easier.
In a previous article we explained the syntax used to write Drupal migration. We also provided references of subfields and content entities' properties including those provided by the Commerce module. This time we are going to list the configuration options of many migrate source plugins. For example, when importing from a JSON file you need to specify which data fetcher and parser to use. In the case of CSV migrations, the source plugin configuration changes depending on the presence of a headers row. Finding out which options are available might require some Drupal development knowledge.
In a previous article we explained the syntax used to write Drupal migrations. When migrating into content entities, these define several properties that can be included in the process section to populate their values. For example, when importing nodes you can specify the title, publication status, creation date, etc. In the case of users, you can set the username, password, timezone, etc. Finding out which properties are available for an entity might require some Drupal development knowledge.
In today’s article we are going to provide a reference of all configuration options that can be set in migration definition files. Additional configuration options available for migrations defined as configuration will also be listed. Finally, we present the configuration options for migrations groups.
