I have a OAI/REST API url having thousand of records. How do I import these records in my content type node. Which module should I use? or I have to write custom module for this. Suggest some solution. Thanks in advance.

  • Look at the Drupal migration framework and tools like migrate plus. – Shawn Conn Apr 19 '19 at 23:04
  • Migrate can do this. I’m doing it right now. – Kevin Apr 20 '19 at 14:22
  • Thanks for the solution @Kevin. Can you please suggest me some guide how to do it. I dont know how to use migrate module. – Pratish Kumar Jha Apr 21 '19 at 13:27
  • Thanks @ShawnConn. Your help is really appreciated. I've read all the documentation of migrate framework but not able to implement it practically. – Pratish Kumar Jha Apr 21 '19 at 13:29

There are several options depending on your needs. Do it once or frequently? Do you want to refresh the data/edit it.

Search on https://www.drupal.org/project/project_module for Import/export

A different type is external_entities which does keep a cached version of the remote content.

Hope this helps a little.
