What does it mean to "recreate" a feature? How does this affect the database? How does it affect the files, if at all?

1 Answer 1


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?

  • Yes. That is how it works. Also, features does not remove code from the .module file, so custom code is safe. Commented Jan 8, 2020 at 22:19
