Description

Use the Install-NAVApp cmdlet to install an already published NAV App for a tenant.

Examples

EXAMPLE 1

Install-NAVApp -ServerInstance BC -Name 'Proseware SmartApp' -Version 2.3.4.500 -Tenant 'Tenant1'

This example installs the NAV App with the specified name and version for the tenant with the ID Tenant1. If the NAV App includes a database schema change, the tenant database is automatically synchronized.
For V2 extensions, the Install-NAVApp cmdlet does not handle synchronization, and in this case, the Sync-NAVApp cmdlet must be used.

EXAMPLE 2

Get-NAVAppInfo -ServerInstance BC -Name 'Proseware SmartApp' -Version 2.3.4.500 | Install-NAVApp -Tenant 'Tenant1'

Description


This example installs a NAV App that is returned from the Get-NAVAppInfo cmdlet for the tenant with the ID Tenant1. If the NAV App contains a database schema change, the tenant database is automatically synchronized.
For V2 extensions, the Install-NAVApp cmdlet does not handle synchronization, and in this case, the Sync-NAVApp cmdlet must be used.

EXAMPLE 3

Install-NAVApp -ServerInstance BC -Path '.\Proseware SmartApp.app' -Tenant 'Tenant1'

This example installs the NAV App at the specified path for the tenant with the ID Tenant1. The NAV App must have already been published to the server instance before you can install it for the tenant. If the NAV App contains a database schema change, the tenant database is automatically synchronized.
For V2 extensions, the Install-NAVApp cmdlet does not handle synchronization, and in this case, the Sync-NAVApp cmdlet must be used.

EXAMPLE 4

Install-NAVApp -ServerInstance BC -Name 'Proseware SmartApp' -Version 2.3.4.500 -Tenant 'Tenant1' -DoNotLoadData

This example installs the NAV App with the provided name and version for the tenant with an ID of Tenant1. If the NAV App contains a schema change, the tenant database will be synchronized but since the -DoNotLoadData switch was used any data backed up from a previous uninstall of this NAV App will not be loaded.
For V2 extensions, the Install-NAVApp cmdlet does not handle synchronization, and in this case, the Sync-NAVApp cmdlet must be used.

EXAMPLE 5

Install-NAVApp -ServerInstance BC -Name 'Proseware SmartApp' -Version 2.3.4.500

This example installs the NAV App with the provided name and version on a single tenant NAV server instance. If the NAV App contains a schema change, the tenant database will be synchronized.
For V2 extensions, the Install-NAVApp cmdlet does not handle synchronization, and in this case, the Sync-NAVApp cmdlet must be used.

EXAMPLE 6

Get-NAVTenant -ServerInstance BC | Install-NAVApp -ServerInstance DynamicsNAV90 -Name 'Proseware SmartApp' -Version 2.3.4.500

This example installs the NAV App with the provided name and version to all tenants of the BC NAV server instance.
