Views Migration helps existing Drupal 7 views objects to transform into compatible YAML configuration files for import in Drupal 8 instance.

Why Views Migration required?

Assume you have migrated your website from Drupal 7 to Drupal 8 using Core Migration tools, as it does not support views migration directly, we need a tool that helps to migrate views from existing Drupal version 7 to Drupal version 8.

Steps for Using Views Migration Module

  • Download and install the module into your existing Drupal 7 site

  • Enter your destination folder path where YAML files will be kept
  • Collect YAML files and import it into Drupal 8 version
