I have begun working on structuring a franchise type educational site and we are going with CiviCRM and Drupal. However, we wanted to go with drupal 8 since we are starting fresh with a complete overhaul.
The reason I am writing, is I came across the civicrm Entity module, and from descriptions looks very promising to connect the needs of civi and our Drupal aspects of the project. I wanted to ask though, how far along is that 8.x version? And is it ok to use?.... we are having some issue currently....
I did install the dev module that is up on https://www.drupal.org/project/civicrm_entity , however, I think something isn’t working as while I can place a civi field in a content type as entity reference, and I can add content and the reference loads in the form and can be selected, once saved however, all it shows is a “restricted access” text with (id) in the field, and when viewing published version that content item that field/reference does not show.
Also, I do not see the CiviCRM Entity types under the Drupal STRUCTURE admin area, but from some of the screen shots in blog documentation I saw this should be there for management options too….
We currently have all other modules and civi working with drupal 8, and this is our last critical piece of the puzzle. Unfortunately, while I am comfortable working with drupal, I do not have a code background so couldn’t dig into this.
Is there more to activating this module than doing through main drupal admin panel, or maybe it should have been done via composer? Any insight anyone can provide would be MUCH appreciated on helping me getting civi Entity going & connected!
