Programatically creating Application forms

Hi, I've successfully created several types of entry in Tendenci, but Application forms have thrown me. Is anyone able to offer a suggestion? In the example below there is no relationship set to Payment types or Membership types which i'm guessing is part of the problem but when I try to add those I am presented with different errors (which I can post here if it will be helpful).

This shows an example in django shell:

>>> from tendenci.apps.memberships.models import MembershipType
>>> from tendenci.apps.payments.models import PaymentMethod
>>> # This task
>>> from tendenci.apps.memberships.models import MembershipApp
>>> individual_application = MembershipApp(
...     name = 'Individuals application to join',
...     description = 'Complete this form to join.', # raw HTML
...     allow_multiple_membership = True,
...     include_tax = True,
...     tax_rate = '0.1000', # 10% in an ...unusual number format, see
...     use_for_corp = True
...     )

After running this Tendenci generates an internal error when visiting but I don't see any errors logged in the console (the site is running via run server).

Deleting the entry and refreshing the membership app page results in the proper page loading

>>> MembershipApp.objects.filter(name='Individuals application to join')
[<MembershipApp: Individuals application to join>]
>>> MembershipApp.objects.filter(name='Individuals application to join')[0].delete()

Thank you for reaching out about this issue. We'll take a look at this and sort it out what is going on there.

Since you didn't specify the slug field when creating the membership app, the error is most likely due to missing the slug.

If you just wanted to test something, it's fine. But we don't recommend to create a membership app programmatically as it would miss some key fields to make app function properly. Please use the admin interface at http://your-domain-name/admin/memberships/membershipapp/.

Hi jenny, I'll try creating an app with a slug to see if that helps, thanks.

I've had a look at the model for membership app, surely all required fields are in that model and its a case of working out which one/s are required?

Quick update: that was the problem, thanks!
