Currently the latest version of the client library supports the UpdateAsync method on the ContentClient object. One of the parameters to this is a bool asDraft. However at no point does this parameter make any difference to the result, which is a published save.
A previous version of Squidex supported automatically creating a draft if one was not already created through the method above. i.e. you didn’t have to explicitly create a draft version and then update it.
Minimal reproduction of the problem
await this.MyClient.UpdateAsync(id, data, true); <-- the “true” is ignored
My current solution is to use the rest api to retrieve the content first (with the X-Unpublished header set to “true”) and check the “newStatus” property (which also isnt part of the client library) to see if it is “Draft”. If the content doesn’t have a draft, I then create one using the rest api.
Am I missing something in the client library that handles this ?

When checking the Status property of the object retrieved through the client library, it always states “Published” even when you have retrieved the draft - the newStatus property is set to “Draft”. Is this intended behaviour ?
When creating a draft for a single content schema, it fails - even the Squidex UI, which calls the same rest api as I am, fails (although no error is reported) - no draft is ever created. Is this intended behaviour ?
