Developer Portal Migration

Pronovix's path to migrating your Drupal 7 developer portal to our Drupal 8 Zero Gravity developer portals with a seamless transition to Drupal 9.



How the migration process works


Drupal 7

We work with you to migrate your Drupal 7 site to our Drupal 9 based Zero Gravity Developer Portal. As an option, we can host and support your existing Drupal 7 developer portal with a plan for migration.

Drupal 8

Incorporating information architecture for user experience, we tailor your Zero Gravity developer portal to align with your business and operational needs. Developer portals in Drupal 8 can be upgraded to Drupal 9.

Drupal 9

New Zero Gravity developer portals are deployed with Drupal 9. We will continue to provide you with updates, extend and customization options, maintenance, hosting and support.

Why Migrate?

Drupal 9 was released June of 2020. Drupal 7 community support has been extended until November 2022. Migration to Drupal 8 can allow for functionality provided by modules that are available in Drupal 8 but not yet in a Drupal 9 compatible release. For more information, read more on drupal.org.
