What does it mean to "recreate" a feature? How does this affect the database? How does it affect the files, if at all?
Recreate allows you to re download the feature, including any changes made to config along with the option to add new config.
So is "recreate" intended as a way to change the features? To make changes to features, does one recreate the feature, download it, and replace the existing feature module in the file system? Jan 8, 2020 at 22:15
Yes. That is how it works. Also, features does not remove code from the .module file, so custom code is safe. Jan 8, 2020 at 22:19
