RuntimeError: Operator bpy.ops.view3d.snap_selected_to_cursor.poll() failed, context is incorrect
Error: Python script failed, check the message in the system console

I am typing in this command, because I already got selected object before snapping:


The question is: why I can not snap selected object to 3d cursor using bpy python while being able to do it by using mouse and keyboard?

as @lemon says the answer is override the context

import bpy

for area in bpy.context.screen.areas:
    if area.type == 'VIEW_3D':
        override = bpy.context.copy()
        override['area'] = area
        override['region'] = area.regions[4]
        bpy.ops.view3d.snap_selected_to_cursor( override, use_offset=False)
