I want to update data category selection from knowledge article's custom field.

enter image description here I have written a process builder and calling apex from there. but it is not updating data category selection But in debug logs i can see insertion is done. Below is the apex class:

    public static void updatekMA1rticleType(List<Id> knowledgeid)

        List<Knowledge__DataCategorySelection> kADCSLst = new List<Knowledge__DataCategorySelection>();
        List<Knowledge__kav> kArticle = [SELECT ID FROM Knowledge__kav  WHERE Id IN: knowledgeid];
       for(Knowledge__kav kak: kArticle)
            Knowledge__DataCategorySelection kADCS = new Knowledge__DataCategorySelection();
            kADCS.ParentId = kak.Id;
            kADCS.DataCategoryGroupName = 'Geography';
            kADCS.DataCategoryName = 'India';



Can anyone help me?

  • If I run the code from Developer Console, it is perfectly inserting data category into my one of the published article Jul 9 '18 at 9:34
  • @Santanu Boral: Thanks for reply..it is working fine for me too but when same code is called from process builder then it is not working.. I checked the logs it is inserting data but i think it is getting rolled back..I have written process builder on Knowledge object(__kav)..

  • Is that correct version Id is getting passed to that method? can you post process picture? Jul 9 '18 at 9:40
  • @Santanu Boral: I added the picture of process builder. I am passing the [knowledge__kav.id] to the method. In debug logsi can see data categories selection is getting inserted but it is getting rolled back for some reason.
