Best way to replace imported file.


I currently have documents coming from a scanner along with a xml file with the metadata that I import from a network path. These files are like a license in that the userID and type will always be the same, only the expire date will change.

What would be the best way to only keep one copy in MFiles. I was thinking about a some c# extension to first check if the user already has a older version of the license and delete it if found.

Is there a better\easier way? I have the compliance toolkit if that can help.

  • Currently there's no built-in way to do this unfortunately.

    Note that I would always update the first document that is imported into the vault and delete the later imported document after updating so that the full version history is maintained. In your original message you suggested deleting the previous version and keeping the latest one, but this way there would be no version history available (unless of course this is what you want).
