Mark or Revert Final Documents in Zoho Writer


The zoho.writer.documents.MarkAsFinal task enables or disables editing in the document. This task is based on the Zoho Writer Mark/Revert Final Document API.

Note: Applicable to all services except Zoho Creator.


<response> = zoho.writer.documents.MarkAsFinal(<document_id>, <markAsFinal>, <connection>);


ParamsData typeDescription
<response>KEY-VALUEThe response returned by Zoho Writer. It represents whether the document has been marked as final or not.

The ID of the document for which editing needs to be enabled/disabled.

The document ID can be obtained from the URL of the document which needs to be marked or reverted as final.

The URL is in the following format:<document_id>


1. If you would like to mark the document as final, pass the value as true.

2. If you would like to revert the document from final, pass the value as false.


The connection's link name.


  • To prevent new authtoken generation and ensure new integration tasks (created after the deadline specified in the post) work as expected, a Zoho OAuth connection with appropriate scopes is mandatory. Existing integration tasks will continue to work, with or without the connections parameter, until you manually delete the authtoken from Zoho Accounts.

  • Add relevant scopes from the Zoho Writer API when creating the connection.

  • Refer to this post for a list of Zoho services that support the Connections page.
