Having trouble finding the code where the data source for the overview map for the Portal SDK application is specified.
I would like to specify an alternative datasource for the overview map in my project.

There's no specific API for the Overview window. This window is actually another map control consuming a predefined Map in Administration Portal.
Other option is to register Administrator user for the Portal SDK instance, create a map and make it Public. Then refer to this Map ID in web.config file, section <webclient gpw="SDIPortalSampleWorkspace" overview="SDIPortalSampleMap"
"- overview (identifier of published GPM, identifier of GPM which will be automatically loaded in overview window)"
Public maps are located at:
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Hexagon\Services\Instances\Portal\App_Data\Maps\public
You will find a file name with GUID string, the content is the name of user account that created this map, in our case adminstrator. If that's the case Then go to:
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Hexagon\Services\Instances\Portal\App_Data\Maps\private\administrator\maps
And find files with the same GUID. Inside those files you will find JSON configuration of the map composition.
If you're looking for dynamic modification of the overview window using code then I'm afraid this is not possible. At least not with the public API.
