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.

  • 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...

  • 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/…
