I got an error when trying to update the content for an existing document that's managed by Ivy.wf().documents(). This api doesn't have the method update so I just tried with following code:

ivy.wf.documents().add("newfolder\\hello.pdf").write().withContentFrom(new File("sourcefolder\\file2.pdf", false));

The message looks like:

IOException: File newfolder\hello.pdf already exists PersistencyException: Cannot create file 'D:\work\AxonIvyDesigner6.3.0\files\application\newfolder\hello.pdf' for document 'newfolder\hello.pdf'

Yeah! it's correct! But, I want to update this existing file with new content.

I already tried to use method delete first:

ivy.wf.documents().delete(new ch.ivyteam.ivy.workflow.document.Path("newfolder\\hello.pdf"));

Or, trying to delete the physical file; but it did not work.

Thanks for your checking!

Update of a existing document should work with:

ivy.wf.documents().get(new Path("/test")).write().withContentFrom(in.file);

Thank you. It works. I think it was just because I made a mistake with the string of path. it should be "newfolder/hello.pdf" rather than "newfolder\hello.pdf"

I agree that the update methods are missing. However you get an existing document with the workflowDocument API and update it with the ch.ivyteam.ivy.scripting.objects.File api:

private static void update(IDocument document) throws IOException {
    Path path = document.getPath();
    ch.ivyteam.ivy.scripting.objects.File myFile = 
            new ch.ivyteam.ivy.scripting.objects.File(path.toString());
    myFile.write("new content "+new Date());
