To modify web parts in Enterprise Portal, use the web-based interface in SharePoint. You can control characteristics of the web part, such as its appearance or behavior.


To modify web parts in Enterprise Portal, we recommend that you have at least Design permissions for the Enterprise Portal site.

To modify a Web part

  1. In Enterprise Portal, browse to the page that contains the web part that you want to modify.

  2. In the ribbon, display the Page tab.

  3. Click the Edit Page command.

  4. In the menu for the web part, click Edit Web Part. The properties and settings for the web part will be displayed.

  5. Make changes to the settings. The settings for each Microsoft Dynamics AX web part type can be found in Web Part Types, which contains a description of each web part type.

  6. Click Apply to have the changes applied to the web part.

  7. Click OK to save the changes and close the list of properties.

  8. Click Stop Editing in the Page tab to save the changes made to the page.

  9. If you will be distributing the web part modifications to other Enterprise Portal installations, import the updated page into the AOT. For more information, see How to: Import Pages into the AOT.
