Update an item in another site.

Jump to solution

I found the "Create item in another site" action, but I'm not seeing one to "Update item in another site" once it's been created.  Does this exist somewhere I'm not seeing?

I did find the Update Multiple Items action, which I guess I can use to do this, but seemed odd that there wasn't a corresponding Update action, so figured I'd post in case I was missing something obvious?

I don't know if it'd work or not because I've never used it but can you use the Call Webservice action?

You could create a new list with a workflow "UpdaterWF" so to as update the specified item and in your current workflow use the "Create item in another site" action that will start "UpdaterWF"

Might have to do something like that.  When I posted initially, I was thinking that I could just use Update Multiple Items to touch the list in another site, and I was more so just curious why I couldn't find an acction that went along with Create item in another site.


That works, but I just hit a snag because now I need to enable check in/out on that other site's list, and Update Multiple Items, while it does let you touch lists on other sites, doesn't seem to let you check out from there.  Wah wah.

I think that you will have to use the web request action to build a REST API request. Here is the example of the request :

I tried using Update Multiple Items to edit an item on another site, and there was no way to specify which item; instead it updated the selected field for every item on the entire list.
