This blog article outlines how to act if you are facing the checkin/checkout issue when uploading documents to SharePoint via DocumentsCorePack. To be more specific – you have enabled the versioning in SharePoint, but DocumentsCorePack is creating new documents every time instead of updating the existing ones. The documents are getting generated without versioning instead it is creating new documents with label suffixed as (1).
Because per default DocumentsCorePack does not support versioning on SharePoint. To activate versioning, you have to enable two settings in the DocumentsCorePack solution in Dynamics 365. Therefore open the “General Settings”-tab and scroll down to the “SharePoint”-settings area and enable
- SharePoint Force Checkin
- SharePoint Overwrite documents with the same name
Please note: Make sure that you are using the latest version DocumentsCorePack, which can be found here.
