Does anyone know how to take ownership of a workshared element from within a macro?

 

I found the "Edited_by" builtinparameter but it is a read-only parameter.

Revit API cannot change the "Edited by" parameter. Normally if the parameter value cannot be changed via the Revit UI, the value cannot be changed via API.

So you can't take ownership of elements programmaticly (via api)?

NO, developers cannot take the owership for a specific element via API.
