Compiling the Web Portal from the Command Line

Compiling the Web Portal from the Command Line

An alternative to compiling the Web Portal in the Web Designer is to compile it from the command line using VI.WebDesigner.CompilerCmd.exe.

Table 47: Program parameters
Parameters Description
Mandatory parameter /conn {string} The database connection string sequence.
/dialog {string} The dialog authentication string sequence.
/project {name} The name of the web project.
Optional parameter /solution {path} The Web Designer solution file to use. If not given, a database project is used.
/mode {mode}

Runs in one of the given modes.

normal = full complication (default)

nostore = assemblies not saved to the database

nocompile = C# codegen executes but without compiling

nocodegen = only compiles Web Designer, no C# codegen


Enables enhanced checking.

For more information about enhanced checking, see the chapter "Global Settings" in the One Identity Manager Web Designer Reference Guide.

-D Enables debug.

Enables generation of stable C# text.

This setting prevents use of certain random values.

/csharpout {folder}

Target directory for C# text.

/help Displays the help text.
Example based on release compilation of the VI_StandardWeb

VI.WebDesigner.CompilerCmd.exe /conn "Data Source=mydbserver.lan;Initial Catalog=Q1IM; User ID=sa; Password=secret" /dialog "Module=DialogUser;User=cccAdmin;Password=strictlysecret" /project VI_StandardWeb

Example based on debug compilation of the VI_User_Registration_Web

VI.WebDesigner.CompilerCmd.exe /conn "Data Source=mydbserver.lan;Initial Catalog=Q1IM; User ID=sa; Password=secret" /dialog "Module=DialogUser;User=cccAdmin;Password=strictlysecret" /project VI_UserRegistration_Web -D

Sub-projects are not compiled, as opposed to the default settings in the Web Designer. This means, VI_UserRegistration_Web is not compiled when the VI_StandardWeb is compiled.
