I have a need to update some of the tag data associated with documents within a document set. I have been able to identify the ID of the particular document in question, and have configured the "Update Item" action like this:
This runs with no error, however the HiddenDateExp field does not get updated. In reading through other posts, it seems that it's not possible to update items within a document set. Can someone confirm this? Is there another way to achieve this? BTW, this is happening within a site workflow that checks for the expiry date of a document -- thanks to for this very helpful post: Site Workflow - Document Review Date Approaching Reminders . I am running Nintex Workflow 2010 Standard, on premise.
Thanks very much!
Each set is somewhat like a regular folder in a document library, so all of the files inside it can be accessed by appending their names to the URL of the Doc Set:
I would suggest using REST calls to access the files inside Document Sets. Each set is an Item in the document library. Using REST, you can get a list of all the files inside the set using the /Items(id)/File endpoint.
The response contains all the metadata for each item inside the document set with the ID 9 inside the Doc Lib MyLibrary.
the File endpoint doesn't work for SharePoint online.
This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below.
