I'm trying to learn the Drupal 8 configuration override system based on the documentation here:
As a simple test, I have disabled the Shield module and exported config. Here's a diff:
diff --git a/config/sync/shield.settings.yml b/config/sync/shield.settings.yml index 3f7482f18..d9f019ca4 100644 --- a/config/sync/shield.settings.yml +++ b/config/sync/shield.settings.yml @@ -1,4 +1,4 @@ -shield_enable: true +shield_enable: false credential_provider: shield credentials: shield:
Now, in my
settings.local.php I have attempted to override this config key:
/** * Disable Shield (HTTP Basic Authentication). */ $config['shield']['shield_enable'] = FALSE;
This approach does not seem to work.
Do I need to do anything else to override the configuration?
NOTE: This is a contrived example. I could use configuration splits to disable HTTP basic auth in the production environment, even if it's enabled in the active database configuration. In fact, I am hoping this approach will allow me to use environment variables to provide environment-specific values for authentication tokens, API keys and other secrets that may change in sandbox and production environments, but details are irrelevant to the question.
