like Igor already mention you can try with the following. First, create scheduled update instance and set name, start and end time.

 * @var \Magento\Staging\Api\UpdateRepositoryInterface
protected $updateRepository;

 * @var \Magento\Staging\Api\Data\UpdateInterfaceFactory
protected $updateFactory;

 * @var \Magento\Framework\Stdlib\DateTime\TimezoneInterface
protected $localeDate;

 * @var \Magento\Catalog\Api\ProductRepositoryInterface
protected $productRepository;

 * @var \Magento\CatalogStaging\Api\ProductStagingInterface
protected $productStaging;

 * @var \Magento\Staging\Model\VersionManager
protected $versionManager;

 * @param \Magento\Staging\Api\UpdateRepositoryInterface $updateRepositoryInterface
 * @param \Magento\Staging\Api\Data\UpdateInterfaceFactory $updateFactory
 * @param \Magento\Framework\Stdlib\DateTime\TimezoneInterface $localeDate
 * @param \Magento\Catalog\Api\ProductRepositoryInterface $productRepositoryInterface
 * @param \Magento\CatalogStaging\Api\ProductStagingInterface $productStagingInterface
 * @param \Magento\Staging\Model\VersionManagerFactory $versionManagerFactory
public function __construct(
    \Magento\Staging\Api\UpdateRepositoryInterface $updateRepositoryInterface,
    \Magento\Staging\Api\Data\UpdateInterfaceFactory $updateFactory,
    \Magento\Framework\Stdlib\DateTime\TimezoneInterface $localeDate,
    \Magento\Catalog\Api\ProductRepositoryInterface $productRepositoryInterface,
    \Magento\CatalogStaging\Api\ProductStagingInterface $productStagingInterface,
    \Magento\Staging\Model\VersionManagerFactory $versionManagerFactory
    $this->updateRepository = $updateRepositoryInterface;
    $this->updateFactory = $updateFactory;
    $this->localeDate = $localeDate;
    $this->productRepository = $productRepositoryInterface;
    $this->productStaging = $productStagingInterface;
    $this->versionManager = $versionManagerFactory->create();

    /** @var \Magento\Staging\Api\Data\UpdateInterface $schedule */
    $schedule = $this->updateFactory->create();
    $schedule->setName("test update");
    $timestampStart = $this->localeDate->scopeTimeStamp() + 3600; 
    $date = new \DateTime('@' . $timestampStart, new \DateTimeZone('UTC')); 
    $schedule->setStartTime($date->format('Y-m-d H:i:s'));

    $timestampEnd = $timestampStart + (60 * 60 * 24);
    $date = new \DateTime('@' . $timestampEnd, new \DateTimeZone('UTC'));
    $schedule->setEndTime($date->format('Y-m-d H:i:s'));

If we omit setting the end date, scheduled update will run indefinitely. At the end, save scheduled update and set it's version.

    // @var  \Magento\Staging\Api\Data\UpdateInterface
    $stagingRepo = $this->updateRepository->save($schedule);

Next, create product updates

    $repository = $this->productRepository;
    $product = $repository->get('239487');
    $name = $product->getName();
    $product->setName($name . " - New");
    $price = $product->getPrice();
    $product->setSpecialPrice($price - 10);

And the last step is to schedule product updates

    $this->productStaging->schedule($product, $stagingRepo->getId());

I wrote a small example and it can be found here

  • It was life saving solution. Thank you so much! May 5, 2021 at 9:16
  • Do you know how to check if there is an existing schedule for a product?

You can use API for this. First, you may need to retrieve update using \Magento\Staging\Api\UpdateRepositoryInterface, then you can create a different version of the product using \Magento\CatalogStaging\Api\ProductStagingInterface.

I didn't try it myself. Let me know if it doesn't work and I will look more into it.

  • Hi @igor-melnykov , think same u too, but i don't know type of data send to API, i'm try but data when send to API was wrong so it fail, pls look more into it, thanks
