How can I programmatically change the value of 'parent_id' in Magento 2?

I tried so far:

$category = $this->_objectManager->get('\Magento\Catalog\Model\Category')->load($id);
$d["entity_id"] = $id;
$d["name"] = $name;
$d["store_id"] = 0;
$d["parent_id"] = 7;

Everything is saved except parent_id


Have a look at the move function in \Magento\Catalog\Model\Category.

 * Move category
 * @param  int $parentId new parent category id
 * @param  null|int $afterCategoryId category id after which we have put current category
 * @return $this
 * @throws \Magento\Framework\Exception\LocalizedException|\Exception
public function move($parentId, $afterCategoryId)

So you have to use something like this: $category->move($newParentId, null);
