I recently found out that you can edit a column in a document library without checking out the document using CSOM, but is that behavior really expected or is it a bug?

What's your library version settings?

  • I have the same settings as yours, but instead of using .update() I used UpdateOverwriteVersion() Sep 7, 2018 at 7:17
  • also working with powershell Sep 7, 2018 at 7:18
  • Test with UpdateOverwriteVersion, need check out also, you may test in a different library.

  • Hi forgot to tell that I deployed a Remote Event Receiver to the library, now I can not update it with powershell but the event receiver can still edit the column Sep 7, 2018 at 8:08
