So right now I have a contentversion that I want to put in an additional field. If I did not put the required on the field I can successfully upload a file but the file just uploads and there isn't any next Button. If I put the field as required I am not able to upload any files anymore.

May I ask what is the right way to do this ?

EDIT: If I open the dev console, it is saying success. enter image description here

Sadly it is not possible to use the required custom fields on the content version object with the default upload.

you have 2 options:

  1. customize the upload, using a flow, Aura, or LWC.
  2. auto-fill that information using pre-existing data in salesforce, using a trigger.

My guess is that you will need to create a custom upload.


We can't Expose custom fields on ContentVersion when uploading files.
