replaceReferences( )

Replaces current references with references in the specified property.

The replaceReferences() function returns a Promise that resolves when the item's current references in the specified property are removed and references to the referenced items are added in their place. The Promise is rejected if the current user does not have update permissions for the collection.

Calling the replaceReferences() function does not trigger any hooks.

Note: The replaceReferences() function is not supported for Single Item Collections.
