I'm using the modules Migrate and Drupal to Drupal Migration. And I'm just using the UI of the migrate_d2d-module to migrate some content of a D7 site to another D7 site.

It works very well for users and there pictures, and the nodes are migrated too with the fields: title, author, date, body etc. BUT not with the image field! That means the images of the nodes are missing. :-/

How can I solve this? I'm sure I have to do some kind of mapping?

What data I have to use for this:


The image field is field_product_image and I have exported/imported the content type of the nodes to my new D7 installation. the Images are stored in default/files/image/galerien.

Thanks for helping me!

  • Did you migrated the files first? – Sumit Madan Apr 8 '15 at 8:13
  • 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. – lolhonk Apr 8 '15 at 8:20
  • Try reverting it again and migrate step by step. First files then roles, users, nodes in sequences. – Sumit Madan Apr 8 '15 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 – lolhonk Apr 8 '15 at 8:34
  • Oh yeah. Can I see your mapping of image field? I know what can be the issue. – Sumit Madan Apr 8 '15 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!
