Save PriceRule does not return created object

I am attempting to create a price rule using admin.rest.resource. the documentation states that the response will contain the created price rule. however, when I attempt to retrieve the response, it is returning undefined. 
 
 
const price_rule = new admin.rest.resources.PriceRule({session: session});
price_rule.title = "TEST";
price_rule.target_type = "line_item";
price_rule.target_selection = "all";
price_rule.allocation_method = "across";
price_rule.value_type = "fixed_amount";
price_rule.value = "-10.0";
price_rule.customer_selection = "all";
price_rule.starts_at = "2018-03-22T00:00:00-00:00";

const priceResponse = await price_rule.save({
update: true,
});
console.log('priceResponse:'+JSON.stringify(priceResponse));
 
I have also tried just logging the response without using a variable:
console.log('save:'+JSON.stringify(await price_rule.save({
update: true,
})));
 
it also returns undefined.
 
Both of these will create the price rule and I can retrieve it if i list all the price rules:
console.log('price rule list:'+JSON.stringify(await admin.rest.resources.PriceRule.all({
session: session,
})));
 
How do I get the id of the created price rule so I can use it in creating a discount code? I don't want to query the price rules every time i want to create a discount and loop over those trying to find my newly created price rule.
 
Thanks

This is an accepted solution.

I found the solution. I don't need to assign the await to a new variable. the update:true will update the price_rule variable with the newly created id.

 

This works and returns an id i can pass into the create discount code:

const price_rule = new admin.rest.resources.PriceRule({session: session});
price_rule.title = "Price Rule Title";
price_rule.target_type = "line_item";
price_rule.target_selection = "all";
price_rule.allocation_method = "across";
price_rule.value_type = "fixed_amount";
price_rule.value = "-10.0";
price_rule.customer_selection = "all";
price_rule.starts_at = "2018-03-22T00:00:00-00:00";

await price_rule.save({
update: true,
});
console.log('price_rule:'+JSON.stringify(price_rule));
