Overriding Configuration in Drupal 8

In Drupal 7, variable values can be overriden within settings.php. With the introduction of the configuration system in Drupal 8, overriding configuration values can be done in a similar manner, but other methods are now possible also. The session will cover:

  • Global overrides using the $config variable in settings.php
  • Per-language overrides
  • Overriding configuration in a custom module
  • Using the Key module to store sensitive configuration values in a secure location—not in the database and not in settings.php
