document properties not being updated with new values.
for the Process:
This is where we face the issue.
Nintex workflow executes
correctly without any error. However the old properties do not get updated with
the new metadata properties!!!
Condition for the Workflow to fire: Workflows runs on item
(document ) update
I would add a commit pending changes action after the check out. What is probably happening is that the update is occurring before the check out completes within the batching process in SharePoint. See more in the following article for details.
Here is what I have tried
1) Download the document. Clear all the properties. Upload the document. This works and the new metadata gets applied with the workflow.
2) Download the document. Upload the document. In the Edit form, remove values for all the fields and set them to blank except for the new ID. Save the changes. This works and the new metadata gets applied based on the new Id using the workflow.
3) Added commit actions, both after checkout, update item and even after check-in item. This doesn't work either. The old metadata is retained from the document properties.
Do let me know if you can think of anything else.
