Virtual DrupalNYC Meetup July 7, 2021 (full meetup)
AMA: Migrating 1m entities from D7 to D9 using Drush and Migrate API
by JD Leonard
In this talk, I’ll give an overview of the project requirements for and my approach to rebuilding a large Drupal 7 site, GilderLehrman.org, in Drupal 9 and migrating its 400,000+ users, and 600,000+ nodes, taxonomy terms, and files. Unique requirements included implementing a two-way sync with Salesforce and seeding user data in Drupal from a mix of Drupal 7 users and their corresponding Salesforce contacts. My goal is for most of this talk to be driven by your questions. Depending on interest, we can dive into the migration configuration files, custom migrate source plugins, and the Google Sheets I used to track migration status. Ask me anything!
