Update files

Files that you add to your organization—such as a shapefile, PDF, or packages—are static. To update the file, you must replace it.

Item owners, organization administrators, and data curators can update items. How you update item content varies by item type.


Use the Item type filter in the Content page to display only file or layer file items.

Follow these steps to replace a file item:

  1. Sign in to the organization.
  2. Open the item details for the file.
  3. Click Update Data on the Overview tab.
  4. Choose the replacement file from your local machine or a network drive.

    The name of the replacement file must be the same as the name of the file you replace.

    The file is immediately replaced with the file you choose.
