Create a news item with the Native API

Use the code example below to create a news item and to set its ID, Title, and Content with the Native API.

NOTE: The ID argument is assigned to the master version of the news item. For more information about the different version of a news item, see For developers: Content lifecycle.

In the example below, you perform the following:

  1. Get an instance of the NewsManager class. 
  2. Check whether a news item with the same ID already exists. 
    If it does not exist, create the news item by calling the CreateNewsItem method of the NewsManager class. 
    You can create a news item with either predefined or auto-generated ID, depending which overload of the method you use. The ID argument is assigned to the ID property of the master version of the item. 
  3. Set the properties of the news item object.
  4. Save the changes. 
  5. To publish the news item in live state, call the MessageWorkflow method of the WorkflowManager class and pass the required parameters.
