Session details

The best way to handle your site configuration comes with Drupal 8 configuration management system .Drupal has great multisite capabilities out-of-the-box, which works when you want to host multiple websites on the same codebase. But what if you want to share configuration across multiple websites?

A real life scenario says you have a section page configuration file in core but you have different fields or block based upon brand as it's a multi-site then how you can overcome these kinds of situations and reuse the existing config files.I will cover these kind of situations that give a brief that when to split the configs for different environments, when to use config ignore and when and how to overide the single config file for multipurpose usage.

During this session you will learn how to implement a Drupal 8 multisite setup, including how to use the same configuration for multiple websites. This technique can greatly simplify the technical management and maintenance of the website and help to roll out new features quickly across multiple sites.
