My plugin aims to strip out html tags from titles being imported from xml Here is the error I'm receiving: FVFXF0ETHV2F:process k28002$ drush mim complinet_xml_to_node Drupal\Component\Plugin\Exception\PluginNotFoundException: The "stripouthtml" plugin does not exist. in [error] /Users/k28002/Sites/devdesktop/drupal8test/core/lib/Drupal/Component/Plugin/Discovery/DiscoveryTrait.php:52 Stack trace:

Here is the plugin which lives in custom/complinetmigration/src/Plugin/migrate/process


 * @file
 * Contains \Drupal\complinetmigration\Plugin\migrate\process\StripOutHTML.

namespace Drupal\complinetmigration\Plugin\migrate\process;

use Drupal\migrate\MigrateException;
use Drupal\migrate\MigrateExecutableInterface;
use Drupal\migrate\ProcessPluginBase;
use Drupal\migrate\Row;

 * @MigrateProcessPlugin(
 * id = "stripouthtml"
 * )
class StripOutHTML extends ProcessPluginBase {

   * {@inheritdoc}
  public function transform($value, MigrateExecutableInterface $migrate_executable, Row $row, $destination_property) {
    // $value: cut off .<nnn>Z and replace by Z
    if( is_null($value) )
      return $value;

    // $old = $value;

    $value= strip_tags($value);
    // drush_print_r( $old . ' -> ' . $value );

    return $value;


and here is the migration

# This migration demonstrates importing from a monolithic XML file.
        - complinetmigration
id: complinet_xml_to_node
label: XML feed of nodes from complinet
migration_group: complinet
  - advanced xml import
  # We use the XML data parser plugin.
  plugin: url
  data_fetcher_plugin: http
  data_parser_plugin: xml
  # Normally, this is one or more fully-qualified URLs or file paths. Because
  # we can't hardcode your local URL, we provide a relative path here which
  # hook_install() will rewrite to a full URL for the current site.
  urls: private://FINRAManual08-08-18.xml
  #  - /migrate_example_advanced_position?_format=xml
  # Visit the URL above (relative to your site root) and look at it. You can see
  # that <response> is the outer element, and each item we want to import is a
  # <position> element. The item_xpath value is the xpath to use to query the
  # desired elements.
  item_selector: '/quickpipe/section/section/section'
  # Under 'fields', we list the data items to be imported. The first level keys
  # are the source field names we want to populate (the names to be used as
  # sources in the process configuration below). For each field we're importing,
  # we provide a label (optional - this is for display in migration tools) and
  # an xpath for retrieving that value. It's important to note that this xpath
  # is relative to the elements retrieved by item_xpath.
      name: versionid
      label: 'Version Id'
      selector: 'version[1]/@recordId'
      name: title

      selector: 'version[1]/title'
      name: content
      lable: 'Content'
      selector: 'version[1]/content'

  # identify each imported item. The 'type' makes sure the migration map table
  # uses the proper schema type for stored the IDs.

  • The plugin filename is StripOutHTML.php . – barneytech Jan 8 at 15:22
  • How about structure of files? – Jonh Jan 8 at 16:01
  • @Jonh StripOutHTML.php with the plugin lives in modules/custom/complinetmigration/src/Plugin/migrate/process any other structure to contend with? – barneytech Jan 8 at 16:02
  • I just tested with annotation indent. Don't need tab 2 near id = "stripouthtml" but you can try it. And remember clear cache before run clear cache. – Jonh Jan 8 at 16:08
  • @Johh, so get rid of any spacing before id = "stripouthtml" and run drush cr right? – barneytech Jan 8 at 16:09

after doing the following based on the advice of @JonH to double check the module was installed correctly I found the following

FVFXF0ETHV2F:process k28002$ drush pm-uninstall complinetmigration
