This function is intended to unconditionally insert/replace Events, e.g., synchronizing a backup Event database.
Setting performInsertReplace = UPDATE_3 inserts or replaces entries in the Event history database for the specified filter for one or more HistoricalEventNodes .
The Server will, based on its own criteria, attempt to determine if the Event already exists; if it does exist then the Event will be deleted and the new Event will be inserted (retaining the EventId). If the EventID was provided then the EventID will be used to determine if the Event already exists. If the Event does not exist then a new Event will be inserted, including the generation of a new EventId.
All of the restrictions, behaviours, and errors specified for the Insert functionality (see 188.8.131.52) also apply to this function.
If an existing Event entry was replaced successfully then the related operationResults entry shall be Good_EntryReplaced. If a new Event entry was created then the related operationResults entry shall be Good_EntryInserted. If the Server cannot determine whether it replaced or inserted an entry then the related operationResults entry shall be Good.
