    Versioning state

    The version information. Available options are:

    • Major: Adds the document with the version 1.0.

    Note To add a document with major or minor version, you must enable the Versioning option for a CMIS-compliant site.

If Versioning is enabled and you try to add a document without a version (None), the job is suspended.
