In this article, let us see how to Enable / Disable Content Approval (Moderation) in SharePoint Lists using CSOM.

Recently I met with a requirement that, whenever a List is being created, a Remote Event Receiver will get triggered. Based on the List Template, we need to do some basic works on the remove event receiver. Out of that, one thing is Enable / disable the Content approval.




The code is straight forward.

 namespace Sathish.Demo
     using Microsoft.SharePoint.Client;
     using System;
     class Program
         static void Main(string[] args)
         public static void EnableModeration()
             OfficeDevPnP.Core.AuthenticationManager authMgr = new OfficeDevPnP.Core.AuthenticationManager();
             string siteUrl = "https://*******";
             string userName = "Sathish@******.com";
             string password = "***************";
             using (var clientContext = authMgr.GetSharePointOnlineAuthenticatedContextTenant(siteUrl, userName, password))
                     Web web = clientContext.Web;
                     List list = web.Lists.GetByTitle("D10");
                     list.EnableModeration = false;
                 catch (Exception ex)
                     System.Console.ForegroundColor = ConsoleColor.Red;
                     System.Console.WriteLine("Exception Occured : " + ex.Message);
                     System.IO.File.AppendAllText("C:\\Temp\\Exception.txt", ex.Message + " - " + siteUrl + Environment.NewLine);
             System.Console.WriteLine("Press Any Key to Exit ....");

Happy Coding,

Sathish Nadarajan.
