U4-7390 - Missing API Method ApplicationContext.Current.Services.MacroService.CreateMacro

Created by Murray Roke 11 Nov 2015, 20:56:07 Updated by Piotr Wegner 07 Nov 2016, 21:29:14

Duplicates: U4-6789

The convention for creating something with the service api is like so:


the macro service should be the same, like so:


but no such method exists.

Note, that I do not see ANY way to create macros using the new API, so this should fix that too. See here for what was tried: https://our.umbraco.org/forum/developers/api-questions/72828-create-macro-programatically

Umbraco.Core.Models.Macro was made public in 7.3.0. You give the MacroService an IMacro and use the Save method to save it.

The duplicate part of this issue is only incidental, the main part of this request is to create a consistent API for creation.
