Pretty much self-explanatory.

I create a category model using category factory and then use the ->save method to save the category. I can see some data created, along with catalog_category_entity, but the category is not visible in admin. This is the code that I use:

public function createCategory($categoryName="", $categoryDescription="", $parentCategoryId=2, $position=1) {

        /// Add a new sub category under root category
        $categoryTmp = $this->cf->create();
        $categoryTmp->setUrlKey("cat-" . $categoryName);
        $categoryTmp->setData("description", $categoryDescription);

        $categoryTmp->save(); //Using this save method, because the perfion import procedure is not time-demanding 
        return $categoryTmp;

What am I missing here?

  • My guess would be 1) Not assigned inside Root Category which is Default category. 2) Store not assigned. – Kingshuk Deb Apr 11 '17 at 13:05
  • I assign it under an existing category. StoreId is also assigned. – Vladimir Despotovic Apr 11 '17 at 14:18
