Issue: Old
document properties not being updated with new values.

Steps
for the Process:

  1. Upload a document in SP 2013 Document Library with
    Managed Metadata Columns.
  2. Use a Nintex Workflow to Read Managed Metadata and
    standard column values from a list using an ID and apply metadata properties to
    the uploaded document.
  3. The workflow executes on Item Update.
  4. The Document gets uploaded and the correct Metadata and
    Other column values are applied by the workflow.
  5. Download the document and save it with a different name.
  6. The document contains the Metadata column values as
    Additional properties.
  7. We now upload the Document with a different name and a New
    ID.
  8. The same workflow is now executed to update the Managed
    Metadata and standard column values using the New ID.
  9. The workflow executes without errors and log entries are
    as expected.

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!!!

 

Workflow
Steps:

Condition for the Workflow to fire: Workflows runs on item
(document ) update

Workflow Algorithm:

  1. Check out the current item(document). We log the existing
    “Current Item” property values to the log history.
  2. Update the metadata properties using List Lookup based on
    the ID.
  3. Check in the current item(document). We log the “Current
    Item” new property values to the log history.
