How to replace files while preserving the same link?

In this article, we talk about file replace, a small functionality in Content Library that enables you to replace the content while preserving your existing links and analytics.

You can replace your file content without needing to replace the existing links using CloudFiles. This is suitable for when you need to make a minor update in a file that has already been shared with the client or when you need static links for files that you want to permanently share but still be able to update file versions.
