Save task element document by reference

The save-document-element-by-reference command allows you to reference other existing document type elements in order to copy that file to the target element of the selected task.

To do this you need to pass a reference to the document using the 'uri' attribute. In case you want to add a new document, please use the save-element-document command. If values already exist for the provided element code, it replaces them with the new ones, otherwise it creates them. In multievaluated elements, the values of the previous elements that no longer exist will be deleted.
