Declare folder as record


  • Hi,

    A user wants a custom action to declare an entire folder (document set) as record.

    Our plan is to create a custom action for folders/document sets called "declare all as record" and trigger custom code to iterate through the folder structure and declare every document a record programmatically.

    So far so good. 

    We planned to have this done via a provider hosted app since we will switch to SharePoint Online in near future, however, we learned that CSOM does not expose the records management API.

    What would be your suggestion to make this work w/o any solution that won't work with SP Online?


    PS: sorry wrong category should have put it into SharePoint 2013 since we run with that.
