To support a Continuous Integration/Deployment (CI/CD) workflow, you can access the DXP Management Portal deployment functionality through an API.
The API is exposed as a REST API and consists of the following functionalities:
- Deployment. To start, complete, and reset deployments to individual environments.
- Content synchronization. Synchronize databases and/or BLOBs from Production down to other environments such as Preproduction or Integration.
- Export. Export databases of various DXP environments in bacpac format and download to use them as needed.
- Storage containers. List available BLOB storage containers in a DXP environment, and also generate a read-only SAS link with dynamic retention hours to access the contents of the container.
The PowerShell module wraps the functionality to integrate with a CI/CD pipeline.
See Octopus Deploy and Episerver's deployment API - Quickstart guide for how to integrate Octopus Deploy with the DXP Management Portal.
