Webform Share enables you to export the configuration for an existing webform
and either import into another webform or use it to create default webform
components for a webform-enabled content type.

There are three main use cases for this module:

  1. To build a webform on a development site and import it into production.
  2. To use a set of components from a form in other forms on your site.
  3. To define and apply a default set of webform components and settings for each

Differences from Drupal 7

  • Exports as JSON array rather than PHP array definiton so no need to use the
    eval() function; because of this, there is no upgrade path.
  • Content type defaults moved from publishing options to Webform tab.
  • Content type defaults can be set from a node of the same content type.
  • Configuration moved to Configuration Management.
  • Some re-wording to improve clarity.


This module requires that the following modules are also enabled:




  1. Navigate to the node and click the "Webform" tab.
  2. Click the "Export" button.

The webform configuration will download in a .json file.


  1. Navigate to an existing or new node of a content type where webforms are
    enabled and click the "Webform" tab
  2. Click the "Import" button
  3. Paste the contents of the .json file you downloaded into the "Import code"
    text area.
  4. If you want to keep any existing components in your webform then check the
    "Keep existing components that are not includeded in the import" option.
  5. If you want to keep the email and form settings and just override the
    components and conditionals check the "Update components and conditionals only"

Setting default webform components for content type

From the same site and content type

  1. Navigate to the node and click the "Webform" tab.
  2. Click the 'Set default' button.

From another site, or content type

  3. Click on the "Webform" sub-tab.
  4. Note that if you haven't previously enabled Webforms for this content-type
    then you will need to enable, "Save Content Type" and return to the "Webform"
  5. Paste the contents of the .json file you downloaded into the "Webform
    default components" text area and save the content-type.
  6. Create a new node of that content type and the webform will be automatically added.
