I'm using migrate upgrade drush command to generate migrations from a live DB of website. So content is created during my migrations. How can I do an update of these migrations to import new content when re-run migrations ?


  • You can use property high_water_property.

You could use the track_changes option, ex.

   plugin: d7_node
   node_type: article
   # Allows to import changed as well as new records from the source.
   track_changes: true


  • do I need to add it in my custom migration yml files ? What about default migrations created by migrate module ?
