I need to add some tables to the database in a new module version. I created a hook_update function:

function bundles_update_7000()

But for some reason my module is missing in the updates list in the admin interface. When I run:

drush pm-update bundles

it writes: "No code updates available."

What could be the issue?

  • Have you done drush cc all to make extra sure that Drupal knows that new function has popped up? Aug 5, 2015 at 20:23
  • @WestonWedding I ran it, but "drush pm-update bundles" returns the same.

  • And it's in bundles.install? Aug 5, 2015 at 20:28
  • @WestonWedding yes. Almost identical code in another module worked.

    If you can run a quick SQL query, what is the result of SELECT name, schema_version FROM `system` WHERE name = 'bundles' ? Maybe it already ran. Aug 5, 2015 at 20:33

You need to run drush updb, not drush pm-update. And you don't specify the module name. So just:

drush updb
  • Thank you, this worked after changing the function name and running your command.
