I'm updating a node's status to unpublished and the status in node_field_data is changed from 1 to 0 but in the content view, status is published and when editing the node, the publish checkbox is still checked.

What am I missing?

->condition('nid', $nids, 'IN')
->fields(['status' => NodeInterface::NOT_PUBLISHED])
  • It could be the data is still cached. Executing a query on the database isn't going to clear the cache.

  • A better way to do this in Drupal 8 is like this, $nodes = \Drupal::entityTypeManager()->getStorage('node')->loadMultiple($nids); foreach ($nodes as $node) { $node->setPublished(FALSE); $node->save(); }
