This screencast presents a way to automatically create the article promotions used in the previous screencast. Topics covered are:

  • Using the after new content has been created event, which does provide content NID
  • Working with rule set components.
  • Creating new entities with Rules.
  • Setting field values in new entities – even complex fields like images.
  • Force-saving entities, for example to get node IDs.
