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.
