If developers cannot deploy their code locally, then there’s a significant problem here that needs addressing. That’s why, in the context of SQL Server database development, the use of a publish profile becomes almost essential, by allowing you to ignore problematic components, such as Active Directory scoped user credentials.
Complex integration pieces that involve on-premise systems can be difficult to scope out and implement. One of the benefits of working with the Microsoft cloud is that there are multiple tools available to help us in this regard. Figuring out the correct one to use, though, can be a challenge…
OAuth authentication, especially involving the Common Data Service or Dynamics 365, is a subject you may not grasp fully the first time around. The technical setup required can be tricky to understand or even implement at all, meaning you find yourself dealing with error codes such as AADSTS65001.
Having sat the new exam for Dynamics 365 and the Power Platform now's as good a time as any to do another series providing revision notes for MB-400. In the first post, we dive deep into the theory behind creating a technical design involving the Power Platform.
IT enterprise projects, particularly ones involving the public cloud, can often be a nightmare from a corporate governance perspective. Fortunately, if Microsoft is your chosen vendor, you can get access to a website with tonnes of useful assets to help you sleep a little more easily.
Developers typically get the short end of the stick in lots of things, and consistent learning tools is one area I’d highlight, particularly in the Dynamics 365 space. Fortunately, this no longer appears to be the case, thanks to the release of exam MB-400.
A common gripe concerning Microsoft Azure App Service is the fact that you must pay an additional cost to deploy a TLS certificate. Fortunately, this concern is now a thing of the past, thanks to the introduction of the App Service Managed Certificate preview feature.
A few weeks ago, I did a post on the process involved when migrating Microsoft Azure Cloud Solutions Provider (CSP) subscriptions across tenants. Having done some actual work relating to this since then (shock horror!), I thought I'd follow up with a new post, sharing some additional thoughts and lessons learned.
One of the best things about Azure Data Factory is its ability to incorporate continuous integration and automated deployments quickly alongside your solution. However, if you’re working with SQL Server data sources and are using square brackets to interact with tables, then you may be in for a bumpy ride…
