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.
Secure authentication between Azure Logic App and Function Apps has been possible for a while. What's less clear is whether we can automate the setup of this as part of an Azure Resource template deployment. So, that leaves us with only one option - let's find out!
It's relatively rare that you will find differences between what's available in Power Automate flows and Logic Apps. The Common Data Service is perhaps the exception to this rule, as its missing some options to allow you to define which attribute data to return from your instance...
Azure API Management and resource manager templates are not natural bedfellows, as I recently discovered. Although it's possible to get them working alongside each other, there is a bit of trial and error involved. That's why I thought I'd share my recent experiences working with them both.
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.
Are you considering enabling Security Defaults on your Azure Active Directory tenant? If so, you may want to think twice before flipping that button so that you can prepare for the potential disruption involved...
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.
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…
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.
