I read the UUID feature description and it says it is used to export content in feature. I installed the module but did not know how to export the content.

The uuid module has been reworked, and, as of 2012.05.25, uuid_features has not been updated to address those changes (though there is a patch RTBC).

In the meantime, to export nodes using uuid_features in Drupal 7:

  • Install features version 7.x-1.0-rc2.
  • Install uuid version 7.x-1.0-alpha1. (Not the latest version.)
  • Install uuid_features version 7.x-1.0-alpha1.
  • Enable the features module, the uuid module, the uuid_node module, and the uuid_features module
  • Go to Configuration > System > Universally unique identifiers, and click the "Create missing UUIDs" button
  • Go to Structure > Features > Create feature, and from the "Edit components" dropdown, select "Content: uuid_node", then pick the nodes you'd like to export into your Feature

  • Do you know if there are working to integrate the uuid_features with the newer uuid version? Aug 13, 2012 at 17:46
  • It looks like on drupal.org/node/1245582#comment-6226436, Rob Loach committed the change to the 7.x-1.x branch of UUID Features, so the latest 7.x-1.x-dev version should work with the current UUID module. (I haven't tried it though.)

    It seems uuid_node isnt required anymore, it was probably merged into one of the above modules

  • This answer could be updated and expanded, as it only addresses nodes and ignores entitie bundles such as fielded taxonomy terms. The UUID features interface has also changed a bit, and there's a configuration step missing (Features > Configure UUID Export tab). That's the step where you can select entity bundles for export in features. Sep 8, 2016 at 16:59

Another way is using defaultcontent module

  • But it does not use the uuid. It forces you to have a machine name for all nodes. Aug 13, 2012 at 17:46
  • This has been deprecated
