I have a message in the /admin/reports/status page regarding some fields.

FYI, those are custom fields that I have deleted

Here is the message:

The %field_name field needs to be uninstalled.

To solve this, I ran cron, I drush cr and finally drush entup =>but this last step display the following error:

In DiscoveryTrait.php line 52: The "field_item:mwd" plugin does not exist. 

mwd is the id of custom field type for which there is a message in the status page...

Here is the Plugin definition and the Class definition of this custom field

 * @FieldType(
 *   id = "mwd",
 *   label = @Translation("Days of week in a Month for a user"),
 *   description = @Translation("Store all days of week in a month for a user."),
 *   category = @Translation("Calendar"),
 *   default_formatter = "mwd_ds_formatter",
 *   default_widget = "mwd_ds_widget",
 * )
class MWDItem extends FieldItemBase implements FieldItemInterface{...

I have created an instance of this field type (with the GUI of drupal) and added it to a content type. This is this field which needs to be uninstalled if I conforms to the status page message.

Unfortunately I can't get rid of it: impossible to remove this warning in the /admin/reports/status page

  • The deleted field was a configured field? – 4k4 Jan 10 at 13:21
  • I have updated my post to explain from where this field is coming from. If I understand well, this is a configured field as it has been created with the GUI of drupal and added to a content type. – Baud Jan 10 at 14:57
  • Yes, this is a configured field. Normally it's no problem to delete a field from a content type. But in your case the delete process couldn't be completed because the field plugin is missing. I don't know how you managed to do this. There should be a warning when you try to uninstall a field module if it still has dependencies in config. – 4k4 Jan 10 at 15:18
  • I have to say that the field plugin is not missing... I have added a bug issue there: drupal.org/project/drupal/issues/3023054 I really don't know what to do. – Baud Jan 10 at 16:05
  • The error message clearly says the plugin is missing. You can list all field type plugins with the Drupal Console command drupal debug:plugin field.field_type. – 4k4 Jan 10 at 16:26
