Description

Use the Sync-NAVApp cmdlet to synchronize the schema changes from an app to a tenant database.

Examples

---------- EXAMPLE 1 ----------

Sync-NAVApp -ServerInstance DynamicsNAV -Id 'Test_Database' -Name 'Proseware SmartApp' -Publisher Proseware -Version 2.3.4.500 -Mode Add

This example synchronizes the NAV App 'Proseware SmartApp' to a tenant database with the ID 'Test_Database'.

---------- EXAMPLE 2 ----------

Sync-NAVApp -ServerInstance DynamicsNAV -Path '.\Proseware SmartApp.app' -Tenant 'Tenant1'

This example synchronizes the app at the specified path to the tenant database for the tenant with the ID 'Tenant1'.

---------- EXAMPLE 3 ----------

Sync-NAVApp -ServerInstance DynamicsNAV -Tenant 'Tenant1' -Name 'Proseware SmartApp' -ExclusiveAccessTicket $ticket

This example synchronizes the NAV app 'Proseware SmartApp' to the tenant database for the tenant with the ID 'Tenant1'. 'Tenant1' is in exclusive access mode and $ticket is the exclusive access ticket.

---------- EXAMPLE 4 ----------

Sync-NAVApp -ServerInstance DynamicsNAV -Tenant 'Tenant1' -Name 'Proseware SmartApp' -Mode Clean

This example uses the '-Mode' parameter to synchronize the tenant database for the tenant with the ID Tenant1 and remove the schema entities created by the NAV app 'Proseware SmartApp' (for example, tables and table extension related objects).

Parameters

-ExclusiveAccessTicket

Specifies the exclusive access ticket allowing this operation on the tenant in the exclusive access mode.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Force

Forces the command to run without asking for user confirmation.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:False
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Mode

The sync mode that dictates the behavior of the command. Specifies how the database schema for the tenant database is synchronized with the database schema that the target NAV App's objects define.

Add: The database schema defined by the objects in the target NAV App are added to the database schema of the target tenant database. That is, if a table or table extension was included in the target NAV App, then the respective full or companion table is created in the tenant database.

Clean: The database schema defined by all versions of the target NAV App will be removed from the target tenant database and all data is lost. That is, if a table or table extension was included in any version of the target NAV App, then the respective full or companion table will be dropped from the tenant database.

Note

You cannot synchronize in clean mode if any version of the extension is installed on a tenant of the server instance. Moreover, in production, this should primarily be done as a final cleanup step after all versions of an extension have been uninstalled and unpublished for good.

Development: This mode is acts similar to Add, except it is intended for use during development. It enables you to sync the same version of an App that is already published, eliminating the need to increase the version number. However, to run this mode, only one version the App can be currently published.
