    Hey Ed. Thanks for your question.

    By default we give uploads a name that is a random string of characters, but you can set uploads to use the original filename if you want/need. The best thing to do would be to set up an Upload Preset like so:

    This will allow you to upload files with the same name as existing assets in your cloud, and they'll be overwritten. You can find your Upload Presets by pressing the settings icon and choosing upload, or by clicking this link.

    You can also set this Upload Preset to be applied to uploads that take via the Media Library, the API, or both. Alternatively you can just target image/video/raw uploads.

    In the example below, I've made an upload preset called keep_filename with the options above, and set it so that it is automatically applied to uploads done via the Media Library:

    Regarding waiting for the CDN cache to clear, overwritten assets are given an updated version number, so you could use that in the URL to bypass any caching. You can read about versioning in this article.

    I hope this helps answer your questions. If you have any further queries, please feel free to reply here or raise a ticket via our Support Portal.
