Customize create controller in the admin dashboard

System Information
  • Strapi Version: 4.20.0
  • Operating System: Windows
  • Node Version: 20.9.0
  • NPM Version: 9.3.0


I just created a custom create controller for a type course but it wasn’t doing anything. Then I found a post on this forum saying that these controllers are only called by the REST API endpoints. I assumed that these controllers would also get called by the STRAPI dashboard.

That leaves me with the question, how do I customize the dashboard create course functionality?

I’m guessing I have to use lifecycle hooks?
