We have set up all our folders with metadata cascade policies, as we would like any files that are added to these folders to automatically be assigned the relevant metadata. However, we have noticed that when copying files from elsewhere in Box, any existing metadata on the file is not overwritten by the metadata policies assigned to the folder that the file is moved to.
We are using the API to set up the metadata cascade policies. Is there any way to ensure that any file moved into a folder with a metadata policy assigned to it automatically has any existing metadata overwritten with the new metadata as per the new folder's metadata policy?
Thanks for your help.
