    This still needs the entire document to be updated and re-ingested.

    The API documentation says : Replace an existing document. Starts ingesting a document with optional metadata.

    We don't want to replace an existing document. We want to add additional metadata without having to re-ingest the entire document again.

    I have a client that is looking for this capability in order to be able to customize the metadata associated with segmented documents. Right now, the same metadata is associated with all segments. They see cases where they want different metadata in each segment.
