I'm using the modules Migrate and Drupal to Drupal Migration modules to migrate some Drupal 7 content to another Drupal 7 site.

It works very well for users and their pictures; the nodes are migrated too with all the fields but the image field.

What data should I use for [field_product_image:destination_dir], [field_product_image:destination_file], and [field_product_image:source_dir]?

The image field is field_product_image. I have exported/imported the content types to the new Drupal 7 installation. The images are stored in default/files/image/galerien.

  • no i just went through the wizard (m_d2d UI) and there i choosed all content what i want to migrate. It said"migrate files other than userpics" and i checked this option. At the end it migrates all data together.

  • Try reverting it again and migrate step by step. First files then roles, users, nodes in sequences. Apr 8, 2015 at 8:22
  • Sadly i have the same problems. I migrate all files first and then migrate the nodes but still same problem: image-field is missing. For the userimages it works well but not for the images of the nodes

  • Oh yeah. Can I see your mapping of image field? I know what can be the issue. Apr 8, 2015 at 8:37

Thanks very much Sumit Madan,

he gives me the solution:


for the file class of the image field enter this as "standard value": MigrateFileFid

set "TRUE" for preserve_files of your image-field.

thanks again!
