Extensibility is one of the main advantages of the Power Platform and an area that Microsoft expects you to understand when tackling exam PL-400. As such, it's the focus of this next post in my revision notes series, as we round off our discussion concerning the first exam area.
We're back with the second post in my new series all about exam PL-400. In this post, we will take a high-level look at some of the critical components to consider when designing a solution targeting the Power Platform.
Like me, you may have heard of Adaptive Cards, but not really understood how they work. Courtesy of the Virtual Power Group, I found a great excuse to dip into them and wanted to show how to use them in Power Automate flows to generate variable, tabular data.
A few weeks ago, we took a look at Environment Variables and used a pattern within Power Automate that was less than ideal. In this post, we will revisit this subject to find out what was wrong and how to go about doing things in a better way.
The Wave 2 2020 Business Applications release is upon us and, in true fashion, the community stepped up to deliver a whole event on the subject. It was a pleasure to be involved in this, and, today, I wanted to share my thoughts regarding the day.
Environment variables, a feature that has recently gone into general availability, provides us with some interesting new capability to tailor the functionality of our canvas Power Apps and Power Automate flows, based on the environment we are targeting. What’s more, they are dead easy to start working with.
Trying to achieve a true ALM process using Power Automate or canvas Power Apps has always been a struggle in the past. Fortunately, we are starting to see some new capability land, such as Connection References, which is helping to remedy some past frustrations.
Microsoft Ignite 2020 took place earlier this week, and there were oodles of new capabilities announced to make any Microsoft 365, Azure or Power Platform enthusiast happy. With this in mind, let's take a look at my top five announcements from the event.
As we close out my blog series on exam MB-400, I thought it might be useful to compile all previous posts together into a single location. So if you've been following along or are joining for the first time, I hope this post is useful.
So far in the MB-400 exam series, we've seen the variety of connectors available for Power Apps and Power Automate flows. For situations where you're working with a bespoke API, developers can use custom connectors to provide the same type of functionality and to extend the Power Platform further.
