Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Content - Version 11.1.1.3.0 and later
Oracle WebCenter Content: Records - Version 11.1.1.3.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Webcenter Content : Records gives the functionality to mass-update metadata of Records folder,Categories,Records and Contents.This however cannot be used for updating metadata of Physical Items . But, it can be achieved using either of the following approaches : 

1. Archiver 

2. RIDC  

With the former the problem would be that that Audit Trail tables will NOT track the metadata update operation since it is a direct database operation. This would make the record administrators not take this approach since it would be a non-record compliant solution .

The latter solution invokes the core Records Idc Services where in the result of the search operation is iterated and the update operation performs the metadata changes , there by triggering the Audit trail updates as well.
