I need to create static blocks programmatically. How to assign a block to selected store views?

I've found tutorials about creating static blocks, but they all add the block to all store views, like this:

public function createCmsBlock()
    // $this->blockFactory is of type: \Magento\Cms\Model\BlockFactory
    $cmsBlock = $this->blockFactory->create();
        ->setTitle('Block Title')
        ->setContent('Block Content')

As far as I understand the line ->setStores([0]); adds the block to all store views. But how to force it to add our block only to selected store views? And how to retrieve list of such store views?

  • The ->setStores([0]), add a comma and add your specific store ID here to associate with specific store only. Sep 20, 2019 at 6:03

An easy approach to do this is from the Admin Panel:

Content > Blocks > Edit (The Block in Question)

In the edit page you will see it's assigned to all stores/website. Use Ctrl key and select the stores you want it to display.

You can use the same approach to assign different text/language to different store views buy creating another block with same identifier but different content and assigned to different store-views.
