As we start getting to the end to my MB-400 revision notes series, we turn our attention to more obscure topics, involving events, Azure and Webhooks. Although this sounds scary when you first hear it, thankfully, their setup relies on a tool we should all be familiar with...
Often, even subjects that you profess to know deeply can surprise you, as what happened to me recently as I took a nosedive into the Dynamics 365 / Common Data Service SDK and discovered a new method that was familiar, yet different, at the same time.
When developers need to perform complex operations targeting the Dynamics 365 / Common Data Service platform, the Web API provides the best route, using well-established standards that support a variety of programming languages.

A relatively new feature within Dynamics 365 Sales is to the ability to generate PDF documents for common entities, via dedicated buttons on forms. But what if you want to disable this functionality? As it turns out, we don't need the Ribbon Workbench to do this…
