We have a DXA 2.0 implementation where we pared down the DXA installation, removing almost entirely the Core module, leaving only the Framework Folder, and a couple of Schemas/configuration Components from Core which are necessary for DXA to work - so basically we have a 'Framework-only' assets of DXA.

We now want to upgrade to DXA 2.2, as DXA 2.2 also supports 'Framework-only' option (with the implementation of this idea), this option is ideal for us.

However, looking at the import packages of the DXA installation, this option seems to be supported only for the SDL Site 9.x versions and not with SDL Web 8.5.

i) Sites 9 import packages

ii) SDL Web 8 import packages

I can't find anything specific about this on SDL DXA docs, I was expecting 'framework-only' option to be supported also with SDL Web 8.5/8.6 versions.

Am I missing something? any thoughts?

    AFAIK - that option only introduced in DXA 2.1+ Sites 9.0+ , In the DXA 2.2 if that file does not exist for 8.5 then it seems only available for sites 9.0+ – Velmurugan Oct 16 at 15:30
