Updating Selected plugin Media in InDesign

New Here ,

I'm developing a plugin for Adobe InDesign that allows users to add media from plugin. Currently, there is a feature to identify updated media versions within plugin's backend and display them in the Links panel.

I'm looking to implement a new feature that mirrors InDesign's functionality: the ability to update selected plugin media with their latest versions in a single action. InDesign allows users to achieve this by selecting media in the Links panel, right-clicking, and selecting "Update URL."

However, I'm unsure how to replicate this behaviour within my plugin. Is there a recommended approach for plugins to interact with the Links panel and update selected media? Any guidance or resources on achieving this functionality would be greatly appreciated
