In PowerApps Portal UAT environment, I have done many changes in web files, entities, web roles , web pages, etc.. Once I get the sign off how to deploy the changes in to prod environment.
Currently I am moving it manually and honestly it is so hard and always a hole in the pot 😞
NB: I have used "Migrate portal configuration" tool and works really well.
But what I am looking for is once the approval / signoff is done. Is there any way it can automatically move from one environment to another environment (UAT to Prod) ?
Need your guidance on how to achieve this.
Any changes to entities and views should be added to a solution and then exported from UAT and Imported to Production?
For portal components like web files, web roles
Please use the Portal Records Mover tool on XRM Toolbox it is awesome.
Hi @Mira_Ghaly , Thank you for your response. I have used Portal Records mover tool and the Configuration migration tool from Microsoft which works great. The scenario I have mentioned is once my manager approves it then it has to happen automatically instead of we doing the transfer.
Hi @ragavanrajan, many projects run into how to embed Portal deployment in their build&release pipelines and I've yet to see one that will work universally. Many projects have come up with their own solutions, but none will be perfect - e.g., how to determine which files should be moved and which aren't. You can manually export using one of the tools and then (assuming using something like Azure DevOps) have a branch commit with approval gates to build/release to use PowerShell for deployment, you can setup a clever process to use Draft/Published Publishing States to query and move records automatically, you can look to extend Jim Novak's CMD-line version of the Portal Records Mover plugin (maybe Azure Service Bus, or a VM, any number of options), etc.
It will most likely take some dev work on your end to setup a process.
