Use Upgrade Status and Contrib Tracker for Drupal 8, Drupal 9

Last updated February 18, 2021

When preparing to migrate from an older version of Drupal to Drupal 8 you'll need to determine if the contributed modules you use are ready to go. The Upgrade Status module can give you a list of all the modules installed on your site, and information about the availability of a Drupal 8 or 9 version. It's not perfect, and will still require some manual research for some modules, but it is a great start towards helping you plan for your migration.

In this tutorial we'll:

  • Install the Upgrade Status module and use it to generate a status report
  • Review the generated report
  • Talk about using the Contrib Tracker project, and other methods for getting more details about the status of upgrades for any module

By the end of this tutorial you should be able to evaluate all the installed modules on your existing Drupal site and determine the current status of a Drupal 8 or 9 version of each.
