The BAM management utility deployment commands allow you to apply, modify, and remove definitions.

  • exe deploy-all: Deploys a BAM definition.
  • exe update-all: Updates a BAM definition.
  • exe remove-all: Removes a BAM definition.

BAM Portal:

Now you can check this on BAM Portal. If you run BAM Portal first time then need to set the Compatibility View Setting on Internet Explorer. If you want to open BAM Portal on Google Crome then you need to add IE Tab in Crome.
