I've replaced an existing image with a new one, but my website still shows the old one. Why is that?

    Shirly said: You can add `invalidate:true` on upload and it will invalidate the new version. For example in NodeJS:

    cloudinary.v2.uploader.upload(".../../myNewImage.jpg",{ public_id: "sample",invalidate:true },
    function(error, result) {console.log(result, error) });

    Why does this not work for Unsigned Uploads? This thing is driving me nuts! It's seriously changing my mind about using Cloudinary in my projects.

    Hi Malcolm,

    When using unsigned upload we don't allow updating/deleting existing images. It for security reasons. because unsigned upload can upload is for anyone to upload assets to your account but we don't want to let them delete or update your existing assets.

    Hope it makes sense,

    Shirly
