Is an Action to create a node available in any module? I tried searching but couldn't find it. I was hoping something as basic as a node create action would be available.


In Rules 2.x on Drupal 7, there is a "Create entity" action built-in to the Rules module itself. You can use this action to create a node (Content), which is one type of entity.

  • Thanks for pointing me here! I'll try this out and I'll mark this as answered when I complete it. Or if anyone else tried it, let me know it works. – radj Jan 23 '13 at 6:05
  • There it is! So it's hidden (and a lot of other stuff) under Entity all along! I must familiarize myself with this Entity module... – radj Jan 23 '13 at 6:06
  • Rules might not be the best option for creating nodes as the selection of data for populating fields might be confusing. Better to just do it in code - see this discussion: stackoverflow.com/questions/7803597/… – Druvision Dec 26 '13 at 6:58
