I am trying to synchronize some config data, and I'm getting the following error:

X depends on modules (examples here) that will not be installed after import.

Now I'm fine with adding the setting that they'll be enabled after synchronization, but I cannot for the life of me find any documentation or where in the config files this lives.

Does anyone have any information?

You are looking for core.extension.yml. Directory for configuration synchronization is set up in settings.php with variable $config_directories.

Here is the documentation, but it's not full.

  • Yep, this is right. Figured it out shortly after posting and going through all sorts of config files. Thank you for the link!
