An API to automatically reprocess all documents enrichments against a new custom model. Merged

Currently, in several customer deployments of Watson Discovery Service currently implementing their MVPs, collections will be thought to contain hundreds of thousands of documents (even millions). Typically the modelling tasks to model custom and domain related analysis is thought to be refined in defined time slots so to obtain more and more accurate models over time. This currently imply that in order to apply the new model to a given collection, so to obtain the new textual analysis, the only way is to drop the current collection, create a new one configured with the new model and reinvest all the documents in the new collection. The impact of this option could be very expensive in a production environment while it could be really minimised if a suitable API to reprocess all the collection content would be available.

    Yes please - even for small collections, having to reload all the docs just to apply an update to the WKS model or configuration set is a bunch of work.
