Hello there,

 

I want to create a Approval flow on one of my document librarys.

This document library is Pages.

 

I Have the following flow:

But when i approve things, the last part (Set content Approval Status), gives me an error:

 

{"Etag":"\"{79295482-226E-4D1C-9385-91F8D42EACD1},4\"","Message":"The ETag of this item does not match the one used for setting content approval status. The contents of the item may have changed before the action was completed.","Succeeded":false,"ApprovalErrorCode":"etagMismatch","ApprovalLink":"https://uipp.sharepoint.com/sites/(LINK)?etag=%22%7b79295482-226E-4D1C-9385-91F8D42EACD1%7d%2c4%22"}

serviceRequestId: 73fbe19e-70bd-0000-b1f9-1bec85e7a105

Re: Etag error

Hey guys,

 

The issue has been fixed.

If i go to sharepoint and say that the only people that can see draft items are Approvers, it will bug and will the flow to give the following error.

I have tested and i can confirm this on my part.

This is a weird interaction because i am the owner of the site.

 

Thank you for your help!

Re: Etag error

Hi @Field , where I have similar flows after the condition, in both the If yes and If no channels I use Send an Email (v2) to inform the creator of the approval decision, then use a SharePoint Update item to save the approval decision, approval date and approver to the item in SharePoint.

Re: Etag error

Hi @Field , That seems to be because you are missing the ETAG in the Set Approval Status. Please see the screenshot below and replicate. It should work then.

Re: Etag error

Hi @Field , Can you recreate a part of the flow (in the approvals, delete the set content approval status action and create that again with the same inputs.) Run and share the output if there is an error?

 

Are there any more actions in your flow otherthan what you have posted? Just want to check that we are getting the right ETag and the itemID. 

 

Thanks.

Re: Etag error

Hello there,

 

I recreated the flow, and it still gives me the error. The pages are not changed during the approval process.

Re: Etag error

If it is not too much, can you please post screenshots of the entire flow? Just for a quick check of why is that happening. 

 

Also, ensure that those files are not open in any tabs too. 

 

Thanks,

Re: Etag error

Hi @Field ,

 

I am having the same issue. 

 

Was your resolution to change your site settings so all users can see pending documents?

 

Just looking for clarity 🙂

Re: Etag error

Hey @NetworkAdmin ,

 

Whenever you want an approval flow on a document library, you need to go to the document library settings, and allow approvals (in the versioning settings).
Mine is like this:

I hope this helps.
