Drupal Update Hook Dependencies

Sometimes, when developing an update hook, you might want it to run after or before a different module’s update hook. this is the way to do it:

Place the following code into your module’s mymodule.install file.

Where 7001 and 7140 are the hook update number.

 * Implementation of hook_update_dependencies().
function mymodule_update_dependencies() {
  // Make sure that mymodule runs after other_module
  $dependencies['mymodule'][7001] = 
 'other_module' => 7140,
  return $dependencies;
