Why is "Update file properties" used after getting a file through HTTP GET and creating it

Hi all,

 

I have a form through which users have to put attachments before sending the form.

 

Recently, I found a tutorial that showed how to get those files through a HTTP GET action, and then create the file based on the information you collected from the request, and THEN update its properties.

 

I was confused on why the latter was needed, so I tried to delete it and found that it works just fine without it. I went back on the tutorial I found and there was no explanation on why it was used. I can't seem to understand what the action does either, at least not completely. Here's what I have just in case :

"Update file properties" action is helpful in updating the file properties the library columns in sharepoint.

 

Updates the properties stored in columns in a library for the item specified by the item id. Use "Update file" action to update file contents

 

For example consider in the sharepoint library you have added additional columns where in you would like to store other details such as place or company name, in these cases "Create File" action would only add the file to the document library to update the file columns you would need the "Update file properties" action.
