[IMPLEMENTED] Can't upsert a previously deleted document

Current behavior

If I try to upsert a document that I previously deleted through the UI, I get the following error:

  "message": "Object has already been deleted.",
  "traceId": "00-620df20bca942847965aa4ea148a1a3e-091c89e9c52dd347-00",
  "type": "https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7231#section-6.5.1",
  "statusCode": 400

Expected behavior

I would expect the object to be recreated. Is this a mongo feature we can get around that I’m not aware?

This is not a bug. It is a restriction of the custom ID system and the fact that nothing really gets deleted.

There are several solutions for this issue, that could be implemented:

  1. Implement hard delete: Schema Contents Deleting & Bulk Insert

  2. Allow the upsert system to undelete the content item.

  3. Introduce a new feature to “undelete” a content item.

  4. Allow the create operation again when a content is deleted, so it start the flow from beginning basically.

I would prefer 1 and 4. From the logical side they are identical.


It is implemented but not part of the cloud yet
