U4-3673 - Creating content with Services API always sets created by to admin

Created by Rolf Johansson 22 Nov 2013, 10:12:58 Updated by Shannon Deminick 25 Nov 2013, 02:25:12

The ContentService.Save method (and probably the other publish methods) only actually sets the Writer Id, not the Creator Id, so all content is always created as admin even when a custom user id is passed to this method.

If you manually set the IContent.CreatorId then of course it will be persisted as expected but the ContentService should assign the CretorId if it is passed in and HasIdentity = false.
