Build Continuous Content Import Using Migrations


Basic familiarity like what are the scenarios where we are using content migration etc. is expected.

I will be covering about migrations API, migrations plugin and related things. Which will be helpful to even beginner users as well.

Session details

Drupal 8’s migration API can be used to migrate content from older sites and various other sources. But can we use it to import data from remote JSON endpoints, and to import content from that feed?

Yes, we can! By using robust migration API we can build continuous content import from remote endpoints.

In this session, we’ll discuss:

  • A quick introduction to Migration API

  • Discussion of Migration API Plugins

  • Approach to implement continuous content import

  • Sample implementation, code walkthrough, and Demo

What will you learn?

At the end of this session, you’ll have a basic understanding of the migration framework and will be able to create required migration files (to build content import).

Drupal apprentices

The best people to train new developers are developers

The Drupal Apprenticeship Scheme will be running a London intake in March. If you are interested in hiring an apprentice or know someone who would benefit from the scheme please get in touch via the link below.

  • Created and run by experienced developers
  • Teaches core skills and best practice
  • Extensive support for businesses and teams

We are also really keen to hear from people who might be interested in mentoring, training and helping us to develop and review training materials to make sure they stay absolutely current and relevant.
