I want to have an ability to reupload files.
For example Firebase Storage suggests me to replace a file if there is another file with same name already exists:
But Backendless Files service can not do it:
I have to delete the existing file manually and only after that I can upload a new one with same name.
In that moment some users can try to downloading a file, so it’s not a good way
You have this opportunity using REST API, passing parameter overwrite=true.
See documentation - https://backendless.com/docs/rest/files_file_upload.html - https://api.backendless.com///files//?overwrite=true
We will consider adding this feature to the console. When adding this task to our roadmap, we will inform you here.
Overwriting feature is present in Android, JS and iOS SDKs as well.
