K2 Workflow Update Document Properties in SharePoint does not work

This article was created in response to a support issue logged with K2. The content may include typographical errors and may be revised at any time without notice. This article is not considered official documentation for K2 software and is provided "as is" with no warranties.


After the upgrade to K2 4.7 and running the K2 4.7 March 2018 CU + FP35, the event "Update Document Properties" in a K2 workflow does not work properly anymore, despite the fact that the values exists in the workflow datafields.


We investigated this issue and it seems that additional information is required in the K2 Workflow to update the document properties when uploading to SharePoint.


In the "Update Document Properties" Event, the Name columns in SharePoint have to have the extension (e.g. .xlsx) added to the field.

You need to create a new "Update Document Properties" Event where you just save the Name column data with the file extension (e.g. Filename.xlsx) and that should resolve the issue.
