I have published a map document as a Map Service from ArcGIS Server that is consumed by ArcGIS Portal to display maps in a web app. The actual data source for the map document comes from a shape file. This shape file gets updated on nightly basis and I want the portal to reflect the updates to the map accordingly.

The question that I have is: would updating the shape file automatically update the map that is hosted on the Portal? If not, what steps should I follow to make it happen? I am new to this technologies so I will appreciate any help.
