Rename Document in Zoho Writer


The zoho.writer.documents.setName task allows you to rename a document. This task is based on the Zoho Writer Rename Document API.

Note: Applicable to all services except Zoho Creator.


<response> = zoho.writer.documents.setName(<document_id>, <name>, <connection>)


ParamsData typeDescription
<response>KEY-VALUEThe response returned by Zoho Writer. It represents the status of the document rename.

The ID of the document which needs to be renamed.

The document ID can be obtained from the URL of the document which needs to be renamed.

The URL is in the following format:<document_id>


Pass a String value through the name key inside the JSONObject.


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.
