Not quite sure if calling entity_save() from code will trigger the update event or not.

So, does it?


Assuming you're asking whether or not entity_save() invokes hook_entity_update(): no, it doesn't.

The controller class (or save callback function) for an entity type may well invoke it (for example node_save() does), but you can't rely on it for an entity type without checking the code first.

  • Thanks. This means I will have to use module_invoke_all('entity_update', $entity, 'entity_type') on my own – Marius Ilie Feb 27 '15 at 11:04
