I have a paragraph field that is already used in a content type. I need to add that paragraph field to another content type using the same field that I was using in the previous content type. How do I do that?

  • I'd recommend adding the field in config, this means configure in UI (see the answer from @ssibal) and export the YAML files. How to add bundle fields programmatically see drupal.stackexchange.com/a/222296/47547

Should be the same as with any other fields:

  1. You go Structure/Content Types/MyContentType
  2. Re-use an existing field: Entity Reference Revisions: ..
  3. You click Save and continue and you apply your settings.

  • Could you please extend your question with the exact use case why you need that? Would help us to find the right way, because this part can be risky.
