Hi:

Which version of Alfresco are you using ?

In last 201707GA (Alfresco Community v5.2.0 (re21f2be5-b22)) , I don't see the replaceExisting parameter. Instead I find existingFileMode parameter SKIP|REPLACE|ADD_VERSION

The default one is SKIP.

Regards.

Hi:

May you test curl with a site path without spaces ? Do you see some WARNING or ERROR in Alfresco logs relating Bulk Import process ? 

Regards.

Hi,

The batch is able to load documents , not to replace them...It seems that the parameter 'replaceExisting=true' is bad..

Thanks for your help.
