Updated: September 6, 2012
Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2
You can programmatically administer Enterprise Portal for Microsoft Dynamics AX by using PowerShell cmdlets or the AxUpdatePortal utility.
The AxUpdatePortal utility, installed with Microsoft Dynamics AX, can be used to deploy Enterprise Portal sites. It can also be used to deploy modifications or additions you have made to existing Enterprise Portal Sites. The utility makes deployment easier, because it can deploy web-related changes to an Enterprise Portal site on an IIS site (virtual server) in just one step. It can also be used to deploy or update specific resources for an Enterprise Portal site. This utility and its parameters are described in detail in the following topic on MSDN, AxUpdatePortal Utility.
