I am interested to know if it is possible to fetch node data from Drupal into CiviCRM.

Is there anyway to do this?

My End Goal is to to populate a "select list" with node titles from drupal and depending on which title you choose, fields values will change.

On which forms do you wish to add the fields/logic?

I feel like there are two questions here:

1) How to build an arbitrary list of options from a third-party source of data (Drupal)

2) How to set the value of one field based on the value of another fields.

For (1), arbitrary lists, you can look into hook_civicrm_fieldOptions, which can dynamically modify the option list for any field. I believe the value still needs to be valid, but if it's a select that stores an integer or a string, I think it's OK.

For (2), I have an extension called fieldconditions, but it is not end-user oriented because it requires writing custom javascript (I would be happy to improve it, if anyone is interested).

Alternatively, CMS-specific form builders (Caldera for WordPress, Webform for Drupal7) might be able to help, until formbuilder is ready (also known as afform).

  • Note that I have my own extension fieldlookup that does the same thing as fieldconditions. It doesn't require writing generic JavaScript, but doesn't have a UI yet. At some point we'll have to join these two extensions together... Commented Nov 20, 2019 at 1:34
  • @JonG-MegaphoneTech - How does your extension work without a UI? How do i assign the fields.

  • @Moe - you know what, I haven't yet added the callback function feature yet, so mine may not be ready for you. Using hook-civicrm_fieldOptions is a good choice though. I actually thought I had an example for you, but it uses a deprecated earlier version of that hook. Commented Nov 20, 2019 at 18:44

I wasn't able to figure this out so data is Fetched directly into CiviCRM. However, I ended up using Drupal EntityQuery and fetched the data into a webform then Used Javascript PopUp Feature and parsed the data back into the CiviCRM form using Jquery.
