    Question

    What happens in terms of file movement during the updateRepresentation web service?

    Answer

    Update representation behaves differently when performed from the UI (add representation or replace a file) and from the API.
    In general the flow of the deposit is: Customer file is copied/moved to the Deposit storage. Then the file is copied to the operational shared (or symbolic link is created). Then the file is moved / copied to the permanent.

    In update a representation from UI, the flow is: Customer file is copied to the Operational_share. From there it is copied/moved to the Operational storage and continues as deposit flow.

    In updateRepresentation from API, the flow is: Customer file is symbolic linked / copied to the Operational storage. From there it is copied/moved to the Permanent storage.
