Manually update JSON fields configuration

  • Is it possible to manually update the generated json fields group file and then have those updates be applied to the field group they reference? For example, it’d be great to be able to deploy field group changes between servers by simply updating the actual json file and then have those changes show up in fields group.

    Currently, if you make any changes directly to the file they are ignored and the plugin defaults to using what’s in the database rather than the json file.

    Hi @hereswhatidid

    Thanks for the post, however, what you have described is not the expected behavior.

    ACF will use the local / json settings over the DB at all times except when editing the field group. Perhaps this is where you are talking about?

  • Strange, it appears to be working now. Thanks for looking in to it!
