I regularly need to create a batch of posts of a custom post type, with names and meta values that follow a regular pattern. This seems like a perfect canditate for using wp-cli, but so far it hasn't worked.
Using wp-cli, if I enter:
wp post create --post_title='test' --post_status='draft' post_type='class_notes'
I get an error:
Unable to read content from 'post_type=class_notes'.
However wp-cli is definitely able to connect to this post type, as the following returns a proper list of labels and capabilities:
wp post-type get 'class_notes'
Is it the case that I simply cannot create a post with a custom post type using wp-cli?
