Installing the Acquia Connector

The Acquia Connector module is a Drupal module package that allows your websites to exchange information with Acquia.

To install the Acquia Connector:

  1. Sign in to your Drupal website as an administrator.

  2. Install and enable the Acquia Connector for your version of Drupal:

    When enabling your Acquia Connector module in your Drupal website, enable the following modules on the Extend/Modules webpage, by Drupal version:

    • Drupal 9 and later: Acquia Connector
    • Drupal 7: Acquia Agent and Acquia Site Profile Information
  3. Go to the Acquia Network Connector configuration webpage using the appropriate method, based on your installed Drupal version:

    • Drupal 9 and later: In the admin menu, go to Configuration > Acquia Connector settings.
    • Drupal 7: In the admin menu, go to Configuration > Acquia Subscription settings.
  4. If the Configuration page does not indicate you are connected to an Acquia subscription, click Get connected, and then enter your Acquia email address and password.


    For multisite applications, it is helpful to enter a unique name in the Site Identification field. Cloud Platform-hosted websites are provided with a name and machine name by default, which are displayed in Cloud Platform interface pages, such as Stack Metrics, to help identify individual installations.

  5. Choose the subscription you want to connect, and then click Submit. If you are using Acquia Connector 7.x-3.x, and your website is not hosted on Cloud Platform, you must enter a name for your website under Site identification, and then click Save settings.


Enabling the Acquia Connector module in a local, development website can cause the website to be listed on your Cloud Platform subscription page along with your other applications.
