Could not insert data.

I am working on inserting the data to the table. I have provided every data but still it gives me value should not be blank message.

So this is my generated sql table:


$connection->executeUpdate(’ CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS swag_bundle ( id BINARY(16) NOT NULL, discount_type VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL, discount DOUBLE NOT NULL, created_at DATETIME(3) NOT NULL, updated_at DATETIME(3) NULL, PRIMARY KEY (id) ) ENGINE=InnoDB DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8mb4 COLLATE=utf8mb4_unicode_ci; ');

Now from the controller I am trying to insert data.


$data = ; for ($i = 0; $i < 1; $i++) { $data = [‘id’ => Uuid::randomHex(), ‘discount_type’ => $faker->name, ‘discount’ => $faker->randomFloat(2, 2, 50), ‘created_at’ => ‘2020-12-24 14:20:12’, ‘updated_at’ => ‘2020-12-24 14:20:12’,]; }

$this->bundleRepository->create($data, $context); return new Response(’’, Response::HTTP_NO_CONTENT);


I am getting an annoying error:



“errors”: [


“code”: “c1051bb4-d103-4f74-8988-acbcafc7fdc3”,

“status”: “400”,

“detail”: “This value should not be blank.”,

“template”: “This value should not be blank.”,

“meta”: {

“parameters”: {

“{{ value }}”: “null”



“source”: {

“pointer”: “/0/discountType”





Hi zan,

have a look into the definition file. You have to use the propertyName and not the storageName of the fields, if you want to add data via the repositories.
E.g. discountType and not like you discount_type.

Best Regards
