On a Drupal 8 content type, I have a field with an entity reference field to a Media Entity field. I would like to use the Metatag module to set the image that is on this Media entity in the og:image meta tag.

  • Featured Image - [node:field_im] - Returns the entity name
  • Featured Image type with delta 0 - [node:field_im:0] - Returns the entity name
  • Media - [node:field_im:0:entity] - Returns the entity name
  • Media ID - [node:field_im:0:target_id] - Returns the entity ID

In Drupal 7, the following token was available:


But I don't see anything like it in D8. Could someone point me in the right direction?

If I understand your question correctly you'll need to do the following:

  • Check on your modules page that the "Metatag: Open Graph" submodule is enabled.
  • Go to metatag config page (Configuration > Search and metadata > Metatag).
  • Add a new "default metatag" and select your content type in the "Type" selectbox.
  • Fill in the rest of the fields similar like following picture (just don't forget to use your own field names:

enter image description here

Here are some things you need to know about my tokens:

  • field_teaser_img: is the fieldname of my media entityreference on my content type.
  • field_me_img: is the fieldname of my image field on my media entity type.
  • facebook: is the imagestyle name I created for these metatags
  • height, mimetype & width: are property fields of the media entity type yet I didn't create those fields but it does seem to work.

I hope this helps.

  • Thanks Hatznie, while those options weren't in the Token browser, they do work. My solution for the Media Entity Image bundle is as follows: [node:field_im:entity:image] Commented Dec 1, 2016 at 15:27

    I found that this solution pointed me in the right direction, but gave me a relative URL. This instead printed an absolute URL: [node:field_teaser_img:entity:field_me_img:entity:url] (using your field name examples)

This worked very well for me, where field_my_image_field is my media-reference-field name
