School of Medicine Development of the Drupal 8 Federation

In 2018, the School of Medicine recognized it needed to prepare for the decommissioning of the Drupal 7 content management system in which most of the school's web sites were built. After nearly 18 months of preparation and planning, the School announced the development of a Drupal 8 Federation of School of Medicine web sites.  The School will provide a single Drupal infrastructure upon which all entities can build their individual sites.  

This site will provide ongoing resources and information for SoM units about this process. Please email Beky Branagan if you have any questions or concerns. 

Migration Deadline is June 30th, 2022

  • DHTS will support secure Drupal 7 sites through June 30th, 2022. After that date, they cannot guarantee that they will be able to host any Drupal 7 websites.
  • The longer a site is on Drupal 7 the more likely it is that one of its modules or themes will be recommended for removal.  It is recommended that site owners move to the Federated Model well before the June 30th, 2022 date.
