Most setup and administration tasks for Enterprise Portal for Microsoft Dynamics AX are completed by using the Microsoft Dynamics AX client. In Enterprise Portal, administrators can view alert rules and workflow history, and refresh data that has been cached. These options are available under Administration on the Quick Launch on the Home page.

Enterprise Portal caches resources from the Application Object Tree (AOT) and data from tables in Microsoft Dynamics AX. If you make changes in the AOT, the changes may not be reflected immediately in Enterprise Portal. Likewise, if you change data in tables in Microsoft Dynamics AX, the changes may not be reflected immediately in Enterprise Portal. Stale data in these caches can cause unexpected results for Enterprise Portal users.

The following table describes the refresh commands in the Administration section. For information about alert rules, see Alerts (Enterprise Portal). For information about Workflow, see Workflow (Enterprise Portal).

Command

Description

Refresh AOD

Flushes cached information about application objects for all items in the AOT. Use this command when changes that you make in the AOT are not immediately reflected in Enterprise Portal. The system notifies you in Enterprise Portal when the refresh is completed.

Refresh data

Flushes cached database records. Use this command when changes that you make in the database are not immediately reflected in Enterprise Portal. The system notifies you in Enterprise Portal when the refresh is completed.

Refresh dictionary

Flushes cached information about application objects for items in the Data Dictionary node of the AOT. Use this command when changes that you make to resources in the Data Dictionary node are not immediately reflected in Enterprise Portal. These resources include tables and extended data types. The system notifies you in Enterprise Portal when the refresh is completed.
