    JOE SHINDELAR: In addition to being able to create nodes,
  • 0:10
    the migrate module is also capable of creating
  • 0:12
    lots of other Drupal data types.
  • 0:15
    In this lesson, we're going to take a look
  • 0:17
    at importing other types of data.
  • 0:20
    Things like users or roles or terms, the ability
  • 0:23
    to import directly into an SQL table.
  • 0:26
    So far, everything that we've imported has been a node.

Migrate Destination Classes


Up to this point we've focused focused on creating nodes as the result of our migrations. The Migrate module however supports a number of different destinations that we can use when importing data. In this lesson we'll take a look at the destination classes that the Migrate module provides for us and talk about what each one is used for and where to find more information and examples of using them. Then we'll implement a migration that imports data as vocabulary terms using the MigrateDestinationTerm class.
