I'm trying to make a simple component for my home page which creates a record with a specific record type. Every time I try it, it uses the default record type instead of the intended. I've made a lot of components before with this function but never specified recordTypId. I've read the documentation and I'm at a bit of a loss as to why its not working with me.


<aura:component implements="flexipage:availableForAllPageTypes" access="global">
    <lightning:card title="QUICK LINKS">
        <div class="slds-p-around_medium slds-grid">
            <div class="slds-col"> 
              <div onclick="{!c.redirectToNewItTicket}">
                  <img src="{!$Resource.quickItTicket}"/> 


    redirectToNewItTicket : function(component, event, helper) {
        console.log('redirectToNewItTicket start');
        var createRecordEventItTicket = $A.get("e.force:createRecord");
            "entityApiName": "Help_Desk__c",
            "recordTypeId " : "012o00000003hMC"
        console.log('redirectToNewItTicket end');

I have verified the RecordType Id is correct. I used this code to ensure it is:


Any ideas? I'm thinking I'm missing something basic here.


You appear to have an extra space in the recordTypeId attribute so that it is "recordTypeId " and not "recordTypeId". That's why it's not recognizing it as a valid parameter.
