Replacing an entire ApplicationXtender document from within a Grooper script

I am at a point in my script where based on a set of conditions I will want to replace an entire document (PDF) in ApplicationXtender with a newer version.  Is there a convenient way to add, access, delete the documents in ApplicationXtender already built into the Grooper API?

Any help is appreciated.

    This depends on a few things.  How are the documents coming into Grooper?

    Currently the only way (that I'm aware) to manipulate documents that already exist in ApplicationXtender is through a link to that actual document.  From there, manipulation is done through Grooper's Link Action activity.

    To create a link from a Grooper document to one in ApplicationXtender, the Grooper batch would have to be made using a New From > CMIS Import..., going to a batch process step for Link Action where the Command property is set to Load Content.

    When all is said and done, you can use the Link Action activity to delete the document in AX before uploading a new one.

    New From > CMIS Import...

    Telling Grooper where to start the batch once you specify which documents to import

    Link Action properties of the starting step (specified above)

    You could also utilize the Save Content and Save Properties commands on the Link Action activity:

    Save Index Fields(Save Properties):

    (Ensure your Scope and Folder Level properties match the batch structure.)
