Remarks

Important

The required URLs webUrl, sourceUrl and targetUrl cannot be encoded. When you do so, you will get a File Not Found error.

When you specify a value for nameConflictBehavior, consider the following:

  • fail will throw an error when the destination file already exists.
  • replace will replace the destination file if it already exists.
  • rename will add a suffix (e.g. Document1.pdf) when the destination file already exists.
