The ManagedDashboard class contains a Publish method that allows you to publish dashboards to a DataPA Enterprise server. The first argument of the Publish method requires a ClientConfig object that defines the location of the server and any licensing or security details that are required to successfully publish the dashboard.
The second argument of the Publish method takes the unique ID of the Category you wish to publish the dashboard to. You can obtain the unique ID of a Category from the context menu (press the right mouse button) of the Managed Publish screen.
