Install-AXModel

Install-AXModel

Installs a model from an .axmodel file to the Microsoft Dynamics AX model store database.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Default
Install-AXModel -File <String> [-Config <String> ] [-Conflict <String> ] [-CreateParents] [-Database <String> ] [-Details] [-NoOptimize] [-NoPrompt] [-Replace <String> ] [-Server <String> ] [-TargetLayer <String> ] [ <CommonParameters>]


Detailed description

The Install-AXModel cmdlet installs a model from a model file to the Microsoft Dynamics AX model store database. You can specify the action to be taken in the event of a conflict with element IDs from another model in the same layer. By default, after this cmdlet is run, the system takes steps to optimize the database, such as re-indexing. If you are importing many models, you may want to set the -Optimize parameter to False to postpone optimization until after all of the models have been imported.

You cannot specify the layer where the model should be installed. It will be installed to the same layer that it was exported from.

Parameters

-Config<String>

Specifies an Application Object Server (AOS) configuration to use to determine the model store database and server name. The default value is the currently active configuration. This parameter cannot be used with the -Database or -Server parameters. If no -Database, -Server, or -Config parameters are supplied, the default configuration is used.

-Conflict<String>

Specifies what to do in the event that a conflict of element IDs between the model being imported and another model in the same layer is found. Possible values include Reject, Push, or Overwrite. Reject stops the import process. Push duplicates the model element into the related update layer. For example, for the ISV layer, the update layer is ISP. Overwrite replaces the existing model element with the imported model element. The default value is Reject.

-CreateParents

Specifies that if you install a child element that does not have a parent in the model store , a new parent element should be created. By default, this option is off, so that if child elements that do not have parents are encountered, the import process is stopped. In general, we recommend that you avoid the use of this parameter, if possible. If you are importing multiple models that have dependencies, we strongly recommend that you import them in the correct order, so that the use of the -CreateParents parameter is not required. If you must use -CreateParents, then we recommend that you use it in combination with the -Conflict parameter set to Push, and then resolve issues with the parent elements in AOT. Note that if you use the -CreateParents parameter, a new model of Category virtual will be created.
