I'm writing a custom Drupal Console command to import user data from a text file and create users, and as part of the process, I need to add data to a term reference field. In the case that a term in the data doesn't exist, I need to create the term and then add the new tid to the the field. I'm using the following code to create the term:
$term = Term::create([ 'name' => $member[$roster_key], 'vid' => 'topic_area', ])->save();
The problem is the
save() method only returns a boolean indicating if the save was successful, NOT the created term object. This means that now that my term has been created, I have to go do an entity query just to get the object I just created.
Is there a simple way to get the just-created term in my code above, or do I really have to do a separate query?
