I have created a taxonomy vocabulary and then uploaded via mysql all the needed tables for the different fields.

I have created a view where I can see all the terms of the vocabulary, but if I go to /admin/structure/taxonomy/myvocabulary I can only see the terms that I have edited and saved, where, which table I have to modify for the terms to be displayed at the vocabulary page?

From what I can tell those are all the taxonomy tables, but none of them seem to contain the term (url) path; thus, they must be in the url_alias table. Also, don't forget to flush your cache to see the changes.

I think it's better/safer if you use feeds to import your taxonomy terms.


Import or aggregate data as nodes, users, taxonomy terms or simple database records.

  • One-off imports and periodic aggregation of content
  • Import or aggregate RSS/Atom feeds
  • Import or aggregate CSV files
  • Import or aggregate OPML files
  • PubSubHubbub support
  • Create nodes, users, taxonomy terms or simple database records from import
  • Extensible to import any other kind of content
  • Granular mapping of input elements to Drupal content elements
  • Exportable configurations
  • Batched import for large files

    Thanks @No Sssweat, I had to do some work around, export the fields first, and some other things, but finally reimporting with feeds made the trick. Commented Mar 19, 2016 at 15:53

    Just to clarify, I did export the vocabulary using Views Data Export module (drupal.org/project/views_data_export) Commented Mar 20, 2016 at 12:59
