Description

Use the New-NAVAppManifest cmdlet to create a new in-memory manifest object that defines a NAV App along with its required prerequisites and dependencies. The manifest object can then be written to disk using the New-NAVAppManifestFile cmdlet. The manifest is required when creating the NAV App package file (.navx) using the New-NAVAppPackage cmdlet. The manifest property values can be changed using the Set-NAVAppManifest cmdlet.
