SharePoint Content Organiser PropertyBag Property Settings

The SharePoint CSOM API doesn’t have an implementation to change the Content organiser settings for a site, but these settings are persisted on the Webs propertybag, meaning that you can change them using CSOM or REST.

The Content Organiser Settings

  1. Phil!

    To set this using PnP PowerShell, you need to change the PB names.

    Set-PnPPropertyBagValue -Key “client_routerenforcerouting” -Value “True”
    Set-PnPPropertyBagValue -Key “_routerversioning” -Value “UseSharePointVersioning”
    Set-PnPPropertyBagValue -Key “_routeremailforproblems” -Value “True”
    Set-PnPPropertyBagValue -Key “_routeremailforstalecontent” -Value “True”
    Set-PnPPropertyBagValue -Key “_routermanageremail” -Value “i:0#.f|membership|”

    This was a life saver though, I didn’t think it was possible at all.
