Joomla Asked by Aymeric KEYEWA on August 17, 2020

I have an issue with a cli php script that I’m trying to execute.
I want to add an article with custom fields.

The part where I add articles is working well, but when I add the code to load the article I just stored and set its custom fields values, there is the following error:

Call to undefined method AddArticle::getTemplate(): JLIB_APPLICATION_ERROR_INVALID_CONTROLLER

The error seems to be related to the following line:

$article_joom = JControllerLegacy::getInstance('Content')->getModel('Article')->getItem($article['id']);

I’ve tried to load the ContentLoader class because someone said it would help, but it didn’t really change anything.

From what I’ve seen, I may not be able to use the JController on a cli script, but I haven’t found another way to load articles.

Start by updating to the latest version of Joomla - 3.9.20 - if you're able to first.

A number of changes regarding JControllerLegacy were made in Joomla 3.8 (see and so that is certainly worth investigating first.

Next take a look at this post which relates to calling JController from CLI Call Controller's Publish-Method from CLI or Helper
