Re: issue when updating new page promoted state in microsoft flow

Managed to demote a news article by using the method listed above by @HarshD  to change from 2 to 0 or 1 whatever you want.

 

Originally Promoted State was not read only which is why it is working for some people, but for quite some time now the field has been Read Only.

 

Using PNP PowerShell you can set the field to not read only.

 

  • set-pnpfield -Identity "Promoted State" -List "Site Pages" -Values @{ReadOnlyField=$false}

Hopefully this does not automatically set back - but i doubt it will.

Re: issue when updating new page promoted state in microsoft flow

Hi @HarshD ,

 

I used a similar method on my side to configure Flow, which can update PromotedState.

 

The only difference with you is to change the double quotes to single quotes in Body, as below:

Please take a try again.

 

Edit:

I also tested it with double quotes, and it can also update the value of PromotedState.

I am running  into the exact issue as @HarshD, successfuly run with same 204 results but not actually updating the PromotedState status.   Tried single & double quotes, neither with any result. Any ideas or assistance would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks.

@HarshD  Unfortunately that is beyond my skillset, I guess I will have to try something else.  Glad you got it working.

PromoteToNews works fine to promote the article, but there isn't a way to step it back.
