Create persistent, "latest" featured content

Our team (in fact, our enterprise) commonly uses RAM to publish documentation for consumption by disparate teams who have various levels of familiarity with RAM.

In many cases, we would like to publish a single URL that the users can bookmark as a reference. We don't want to change this URL every time the asset content changes.

When our featured content is essentially static (think: index.html), we have no concerns about the featured content changing from release to release.

We would like RAM to provide an alias URL for featured content that will link always to the LATEST VERSION of the artifact.

    The process for submitting new documents would not change, they would always be submitted as an update or as a new version. Accessing documents wouldn't change, for example, these would still work


    The RFE asks that a virtual URL be accessible as well:


    This would always point to the latest version of the asset. So in the case of this example, these links would take you to the same document:

    The typical use case for this would be, for example, featuring "index.html". The document name would never change but you would want to be able to offer a "latest version" URL to that document. It would be some type of alias. For example, this URL takes you to a specific version:

    If that's the latest version, then this would take you to the same place:

    This would let you give a single URL to a document that is constantly changing.

    This request lacks sufficient information for us to evaluate it. It might not be considered further until it has been revised and clarified.
    How could you create the new document? Rename the doc name just like "xxxxxxxxxxxx_v1.0" to "xxxxxxxxxx_v1.1" and upload it into the same asset?
    Or create a new version of the asset and set it to 1.1, then upload the new doc with the same name?
    Thanks a lot.
