I have the following file.


    message: 'Hello'
    langcode: 'en'

But I am not able to get the following value.

$config = \Drupal::config('test_module.settings');
print $config->get('message');    

I have referred this link.


Removing test_module.settings: line solved the issue.

    message: 'Hello'
    langcode: 'en'

Is that really content of your file? It should only contain:

message: 'Hello'
langcode: 'en'

Also, Configuration on config/install is only imported when a module is installed. If it is an existing module, you need to re-install it or write an update function to initialize the configuration.

You can always use something like print_r($config->get()) to see everything in your config file.

  • Thank you. Is there any other way to use these configuration? Means other than config/install so that there is no necessary to re-install the module. – Dushyant Joshi Jul 25 '17 at 10:20

    You can import the configuration manually using the single config import UI or a configuration sync but no, there is no process to do anything like that automatically. – Berdir Jul 25 '17 at 12:35
