Metadata Cascading with Overwrite does not update but deletes and creates Metadata Instances
The request here is for box to update the current metadata instance object if already exists on a file/folder instead of deleting and creating new instance when cascading policy with overwrite is applied to a folder.
Box in the current behavior of Metadata Cascading with Overwrite option deletes the
existing metadata Instance and creates a new metadata instance object, this is causing conflicts when any custom business process through API has to manage metadata on items under the cascaded folders. The process gets caught into a scenario where between get metadata and update metadata methods during update the custom process gets the error metadata instance not found on a folder because of Box behind the scenes continuously is deleting and creating new metatdata instance on files and folders under that folder.
