I have a SharePoint online enterprise wiki site collection. and i have provided a newer pagelayout and new content type. but i do not want to update all the wiki pages at-once. so i tried to create a SP 2013 workflow which runs on item update, to check if the page layout does not have the new page layout and update the page layout accordingly.

but i faced 2 issues:-

  1. i can not search for the Page Layout inside the If statement. as it does not allow to reference a page layout using the name.
  2. inside the Set item, the Page Layout is not available, as follow:-

enter image description here

OOTB SharePoint Designer Workflow doesn't give those options to update the page layout.

If you want to update the content type using MS flow, refer this link.

Other Approach:

Change Page Layout Using CSOM With PowerShell in SharePoint Online

  • ok thanks for the reply, but per your knowledge, does MS Flow support this scenario?
