Can it be used to get configuration from one site to another site which is not a clone.
eg: SiteX is installed using
composer create-project drupal-composer/drupal-project:8.x-dev SiteX
and also another site SiteY using
composer create-project drupal-composer/drupal-project:8.x-dev SiteY
I did some changes to SiteX( New content type with few fields). I did drush cex to get the configuration and imported in SiteY config/sync folder and did drush cim. I did not see the new content type in SiteY. Based on some other articles, i tried
drush cget system.site uuid in SiteX
drush cset system.site uuid # in SiteY
drush cim # in SiteY
Still no luck. I don't see the new content type.
Does this configuration synchronization, only work in cloned sites ??.
My whole requirement is to export the configuration from one environment is another with out moving content.
Note: We have GIT, local, Test and Prod are the three environments. Currently we are still in local stage. So a full config export is possible for higher environments. DB dump( export and import ) is not possible as content also gets migrated. Please correct me if I am wrong.
