Description

Use the Set-NAVApplication cmdlet to set the applicationversion or applicationfamily fields in the application database connected to the specified Business Central Server instance.

Examples

EXAMPLE 1

Set-NAVApplication -ServerInstance BC -ApplicationVersion '10.0.14824.3'

This example specifies the revision number of applicationversion field in the $ndo$dbproperty table of the application database connected to the specified Business Central Server instance. The example assumes that the existing applicationversion is '10.0.14824.0'.

EXAMPLE 2

Set-NAVApplication -ServerInstance BC -ApplicationVersion '10.0.14840.0' -Force

This example specifies the build number of applicationversion field in the $ndo$dbproperty table of the application database connected to the specified Business Central Server instance. The example assumes that the existing applicationversion is '10.0.14824.0'.

EXAMPLE 3

Set-NAVApplication -ServerInstance BC -ApplicationFamily 'W1'

This example specifies the applicationfamily field in the $ndo$dbproperty table of the application database connected to the specified Business Central Server instance. The example assumes that the existing applicationfamily is '' (empty).

EXAMPLE 4

Set-NAVApplication -ServerInstance BC -ApplicationFamily 'W1' -Force

This example specifies the applicationfamily field in the $ndo$dbproperty table of the application database connected to the specified Business Central Server instance. The example assumes that the existing applicationfamily is non-empty.

EXAMPLE 5

Set-NAVApplication -ServerInstance BC -IncrementApplicationVersion

This example increases by 1 the last number of applicationversion field in the $ndo$dbproperty table of the application database connected to the specified Business Central Server instance. The example assumes that the existing applicationfamily is non-empty.

Parameters

-ApplicationFamily

Specifies the string for the applicationfamily field in the $ndo$dbproperty table of the application database.

If applicationfamily field already has a value in the table, you must use the -Force switch parameter to change the value. Be aware that this change may impact the data upgrade process.
