    programmatically create content not working

    This seems to be an old issue that I are having trouble with.

    Asking again as all the posts are for old version of umbraco.

    I'm running v12.2.0 )Latest version.

    Have followed this documentation https://docs.umbraco.com/umbraco-cms/reference/management/services/contentservice/create-content-programmatically witch was last updated 16hrs ago at time of writing this post.

    The only difference I are running the code from server side in a hangfire scheduled task.

    1. I get the parent document

      IPublishedContent catFolder = query.ContentAtRoot().DescendantsOrSelfOfType("IBDExypnosLandingPage").FirstOrDefault().FirstChildOfType("IBDExypnosCategoriesFolder");

    2. create the IContent

      // assign parent id. Guid parentId = catFolder.Key;

      // create content var newCatagory = _contentService.Create(Name, parentId, "IBDExypnosCategoriesPage");

    Up until here everything is working fine. 1st issue

    newCatagory.SetValue("onPageTitle", "hello");
    newCatagory.SetValue("titleAndDescription", jsonConvert.SerializeObject(seo));
    

    these line generate this error: Variation null,null is not supported by the property type.

    have also tried:

    newCatagory.SetValue(propertyTypeAlias: "onPageTitle", "hello", segment: null);

    2nd issue

    _contentService.SaveAndPublish(newCatagory);
    

    this line generate this error: Cannot save content with an empty name.

    Anybody with some ideas

    Are you sure that the 'Name' variable is not empty here?

    var newCatagory = _contentService.Create(Name, parentId, "IBDExypnosCategoriesPage");
    

    If the document type is variable by culture don't forget to add the name for each culture.

    newCatagory.SetCultureName("english name", "en-us");  newCatagory.SetCultureName("dutch name", "nl");

    I have the exact same problem on 12.2.0. Have you found a solution yet?

    I think you need to pass a udi not id for the parent

        var parent = _contentService.GetById(model.ParentId);
        var forum = _contentService.CreateContent(model.Title, parent.GetUdi(), "forum");

    Hi Hew thanks for your quick reply. But I have solved my problem in the meantime. It was because it is a multilanguage solution and I have to make sure that all language versions exist. Yes, we Swiss people have a hard time with our languages ;-).

    public void CreatePage(IMember member, TeacherProfile profile)
    {
        var itemName = $"{profile.Name}";
    
        IPublishedContent? parent = null;
    
        if (ContextAccessor.TryGetUmbracoContext(out var ctx))
        {
            parent = ctx.Content.GetAtRoot().FirstOrDefault(c => c.ContentType.Alias == Constants.DocumentTypes.MsHomePage.Alias)?
                .Children.FirstOrDefault(c => c.ContentType.Alias == Constants.DocumentTypes.MsSchoolOverview.Alias);
        }
    
    
    
        if (parent != null)
        {
            var content = _contentService.Create(itemName.ToLowerInvariant(), parent.Id, Constants.DocumentTypes.MsMusicTeacherPage.Alias);
    
            foreach (var lang in _localizationService.GetAllLanguages())
            {
                content.SetCultureName(itemName, lang.CultureInfo.Name);
                content.SetValue(Constants.DocumentTypes.MsMusicTeacherPage.Fields.TeachingType, profile.Subtitle, lang.CultureInfo.Name, string.Empty);
                content.SetValue(Constants.DocumentTypes.MsMusicTeacherPage.Fields.State, profile.State, lang.CultureInfo.Name, string.Empty);
                content.SetValue(Constants.DocumentTypes.MsMusicTeacherPage.Fields.Style, profile.Style, lang.CultureInfo.Name, string.Empty);
                content.SetValue(Constants.DocumentTypes.MsMusicTeacherPage.Fields.InstrumentLocations, JsonConvert.SerializeObject(GetInstrumentLocationBlockList(profile.InstrumentLocations)), lang.CultureInfo.Name, string.Empty);
            }
    
            content.SetValue(Constants.DocumentTypes.MsMusicTeacherPage.Fields.Website, JsonConvert.SerializeObject(new List<Link>() {
                new Link()
            {
                Url = profile.Website,
                Type = LinkType.External
            }
            }));
    
            content.SetValue(Constants.DocumentTypes.MsMusicTeacherPage.Fields.LessonsForAge, profile.LessonsFrom);
            content.SetValue(Constants.DocumentTypes.MsMusicTeacherPage.Fields.Name, member.Name);
            content.SetValue(Constants.DocumentTypes.MsMusicTeacherPage.Fields.Email, member.Email);
            content.SetValue(Constants.DocumentTypes.MsMusicTeacherPage.Fields.Lon, profile.Lon.ToString());
            content.SetValue(Constants.DocumentTypes.MsMusicTeacherPage.Fields.Lat, profile.Lat.ToString());
            content.SetValue(Constants.DocumentTypes.MsMusicTeacherPage.Fields.Address, profile.Address);
            content.SetValue(Constants.DocumentTypes.MsMusicTeacherPage.Fields.City, profile.City);
            content.SetValue(Constants.DocumentTypes.MsMusicTeacherPage.Fields.ZipCode, profile.ZipCode);
            content.SetValue(Constants.DocumentTypes.MsMusicTeacherPage.Fields.Member, member.Id);
            _contentService.SaveAndPublish(content);
        }
    }

    That was going to be my next suggestion :D

                post = _contentService.Create(postName, parent, "forumPost");
                if (post.AvailableCultures.Any())
                {
                    foreach (var language in languages)
                    {
                        post.SetCultureName(postName,language.IsoCode);
                    }
                }
