U4-6536 - Overwrite Media item not working

Created by Scott Leslie 21 Apr 2015, 08:57:49 Updated by Shannon Deminick 26 Jun 2017, 07:11:21

What did you do? Attempt to overwrite media item (PDF) in backoffice. When using the "green" upload button and tick "overwrite existing". The filename and extension is the same.

What did you expect to happen? the file should have been uploaded with the same id and url to the file so links to the document would be maintained.

What actually happened? The file was not overwritten.

on the media item going to the FILE tab and overwriting the file via this appears to work.
