Hello payalm,

Try this below code for your reference,

var myDoc = app.documents[0]

var myCurrentNode = app.selection[0];

var parentNode = myCurrentNode.parent.xmlElements.add('TestNode');

parentNode = parentNode.move(LocationOptions.BEFORE,myCurrentNode);

myDoc.recompose();

myCurrentNode = myCurrentNode.move(LocationOptions.AT_BEGINNING,parentNode);

This way, we will lose some style formatting. The better way is to use "Side Menu \ New Parent Element". But how to trigger this side menu option through scripting? Any idea?
