Unable to update document library Managed Metadata column

We are trying to update the Taxonomy fields in a SharePoint document library through Nintex workflow(Site Column & List Column) using rest api(https://community.nintex.com/community/build-your-own/nintex-for-office-365/blog/2015/06/25/update-m...), but the fields are not updated with the values. But Nintex support team has suggested that it only works for lists and not for libraries. 

Has anyone in the community has found the workaround for the solution? If anyone has a workaround could you please update the community

Re: Unable to update document library Managed Metadata column

The above issue is resolved once I modified the workflow as per the above steps. My workflow is a Site workflow and if I run the workflow manually it works fine, but If i schedule the workflow it gives an "403" error at the action "Call HTTP Web Service". I have given the Workflow App "Full Control" permissions as well.

Kindly assist.

Re: Unable to update document library Managed Metadata column

Hi Ranjith,

I have updated the App permission xml to sitecollection level as mentioned above, but still I am encountering the same issue.

Am I missing any other setting on the site?

Thanks,

Re: Unable to update document library Managed Metadata column

Hi,

Try the other action - "Web request". Using it you can provide credentials (https://help.nintex.com/en-US/O365/#o365/O365WorkFlow/WorkflowActions-INT/WebRequest.htm%3FTocPath%3...), so no such issues should occur.

Re: Unable to update document library Managed Metadata column

Hi Ranjith,

Thanks for the steps to update managed meta data column.

But unfortunately I am not able to update the same.

I am getting below error.

An unexpected 'PrimitiveValue' node was found when reading from the JSON reader. A 'StartObject' node was expected.
