Goal

Webcenter Content:Records (WCCREC) gives the functionality to mass update Records , Record Folders and Categories using the Global Update option. The drawback with this functionality is that it cannot do the same for Physical Contents . Using archiver functionality also is not a feasible solution since there are multiple tables where data for Physical items are stored . 

In both the above cases , the content items update will not be tracked in Audit Tables since these are direct database level updates. Records auditing being a key requirement , it might be unacceptable to use the aforementioned 

In this kind of a scenario , RIDC api gives the ability to mass update the items using OOTB Records service which even adhered to the audit requirements and is captured in the respective tables.
