term does not automatically gets created in a specific vocabulary from the node/add page

Steps to reproduce -

  • Create two new vocabularies at - SITE/admin/structure/taxonomy/add
  • Add them as fields to the article content type. Set number of values to be unlimited, set form display to Autocomplete (tags style)
  • The new vocab fields do not work like the Tags field

Could you help me learn how to automatically create a term in a specific vocabulary from the field present in node/add page?

Thanks to a colleague, I found the setting I had to use.

  1. Go to - SITE/admin/structure/types/manage/article/fields/node.article.field_vocab_a_tag
  2. Check - Create referenced entities if they don't already exist
