Creating pages via REST API in a multi-language site

Ozgur Ozguven asked on June 24, 2015 18:27

I am programmatically creating pages in Kentico via REST API. All works fine for single-language sites. In a multiple-language sites, how can I create pages and its language variations. At the moment, I create them (wrongly) as seperate pages and that leads to duplication. What I mean by that is that if my site supports two languages, I end up with two seperate entries in a given language, one is fine and the other one appears as a 'not translated page'. Any help will be appericiated. Thanks..

Hello Ozgur

Please make sure you are using the correct format for the POST URL:

/content/site/<site name>/<culture>/document/<alias path>

the alias path is the full path of the first document you created, so if you are creating a new French culture version of the News page on CorporateSite it would be this:


then in the data you need to specify NodeID, however you should not explicitly set the DocumentID as this should automatically generate when adding the new culture version.

This should help:

/content/currentsite/<culture>/document/<alias path> - creates a new page in the given culture for the site running on the domain in the base URL.
/content/site/<site name>/<culture>/document/<alias path> - creates a new page in the given culture on the specified site.

See documentation for more details.

Thanks Roman.

But how will those two pages be related? My problem is that when I manually create a page in the main language, then switch to another language and there is already an entry in the content tree, but, it has not yet been created/translated. When I do create it through the UI manually, these two pages have the same NodeID, NodeGUID and DocumentNodeID. I need to repeat the same process via the REST API. But when I include NodeID of the first page I create in my HTTP POST, I get an error (Object reference not set to an instance of an object.)

How can I create the same page in multiple languages via the REST API?
