I am saving an entity and I would want to get the node id of that saved entity.

$CustomerEntity = CustomerEntity::create([
        'customer_id' => $customer['id'],
        'customer_name' => $customer['name'],
        'address' => $customer['address'],


How do I get the node id from here?


Try $CustomerEntity->id(); after saving your entity.

  • This apparently is empty if trying to get it one line below... when halting using a debug breakpoint and then reading it, it is perfectly filled. – Florian Müller Jun 7 '18 at 9:23
