Specialist batch job - update document metadata

When you establish and maintain a comprehensive enterprise archive in a company, you will over time need to enhance or remodel the data associated with your documents.

The open architecture of Next® allows you to make any such change and updates using the REST APIs and any scripting language you master.

Now we introduce another and even easier and more efficient tool for our Next® specialists.

While easier than REST, it's still a specialist tool.

Besides being able to enhance and remodel you data like the REST API this batch job is automatically run as a background job, and as such prioritized to avoid interfering with the everyday users of Next®.

The Update document metadata runs controlled and prioritized like any other background task 

Future enhancements

This tool is intended for Next® Specialists only. 
In a future release, Next® will come with a number of specific update functions - Change contract owner, to mention one. These specific update functions are suitable to be run by admins and super users. 

For the techies

This is absolutely FOR SPECIALISTS ONLY.
