Azure Data Factory (ADF) remains a massive area for me, and within the projects I'm involved in. Previously, those looking to use ADF to map into Owner or Customer fields in the Common Data Service may have hit a few issues. Thankfully, this is now all in the past.
We are back once again with my MB-400 revision notes series! In this post, we round off our discussions relating to user interfaces by discussing command buttons and how to work with them via the Ribbon Workbench.
Resolving ‘Entity could not be retrieved from data source’ Errors with Virtual Entities (Dynamics 365 / Common Data Service)
Are you having fun with Virtual Entities? That might be why you've come across this blog post. All sorts of problems can emerge if you've not configured them correctly. In this post, I'll talk you through the common things to look out for and fix.
If you are building applications leveraging Azure Active Directory, you may already be aware of the new OAuth 2.0 V2 endpoints to use when generating access tokens. And, although it requires a refactor, it’s possible to utilise them today when connecting to Dynamics 365 / the Common Data Service.
Power Apps Component Framework (PCF) controls are a new, shiny, thing that Power Platform / Dynamics 365 developers can work with. They are also a subject area within Microsoft exam MB-400. Therefore, in my next post on my series targeting this exam, let’s see how they work.
The Dynamics 365 / Common Data Service Web API allows developers to leverage a wide variety of functionality, from almost any conceivable location - such as, for example, an Azure Data Factory V2 pipeline. With this in mind, let’s dive in and see how to achieve this.
For an exam like MB-400, which targets developers building code-heavy solutions targeting Dynamics 365 or the Power Platform, you'd expect Microsoft to skip a topic like Business Rules entirely. However, they are very much a feature you should use and fully understand.
Traditionally, Dynamics CRM developers would find themselves constrained by the capabilities within traditional workflows. With some of the exciting innovations that Power Automate brings to the fore, it becomes possible to do some pretty amazing things, which is why they are a central topic for exam MB-400…
