How to import your packages
Ways to import packages
All package export types can be imported via the package import UI and using Drush CLI commands.
During the import of packages, the standard Drupal config validation and Site Studio specific validation is performed, this includes data integrity checks, to ensure that layout canvas changes in imported entities are not going to cause data loss due to updated fields that are already being used in the destination environment.
Validation is optional when using the new package management commands available in Site Studio version 6.8 or greater - using the latest and greatest is therefore recommended to reduce import times in production environments!
Once validation is complete and the import process is finished, the Site Studio package import performs partial rebuild on imported and existing entities as required.
In some cases a full rebuild has to be performed, if imported changes will have a knock on effect on all of the Site Studio styles. For example, updating Base Unit Settings would trigger a full rebuild.
