As we close out my series on exam PL-400, I thought it’d be helpful to compile all posts together into a single location. So if you've followed along or are joining for the first time, hopefully, you'll find what you need.
Today, we’re looking at the final topic for the PL-400 exam - data synchronisation - a common requirement arises within the Power Platform. Fortunately, we don't need to write complex, custom code to achieve this, as we can leverage two features - change tracking and alternate keys.
As we start getting to the end of my PL-400 revision notes series, we focus on more obscure topics involving events, Microsoft 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...
When developers need to perform complex operations targeting the Microsoft Dataverse platform, the Web API provides the best route, using well-established standards that support various programming languages. It’s also a topic you need to be familiar with when tackling Microsoft exam PL-400.
So far in the PL-400 exam series, we've seen the various 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 functionality and extend the Power Platform.
As we saw last week, PCF controls provide a superb way to tailor a model-driven Power App's interface. To help us further in this objective, we can also modify the Ribbon, which (surprise, surprise) is also the next topic area for the PL-400 exam...
PCF controls are no longer new and shiny, but they remain a powerful tool at the disposal of Power Platform developers. And, much like MB-400, they remain a crucial topic within the PL-400 exam and the focus for today’s blog post.
As well as having a good awareness of Power Automate flows, Power Platform developers also need to grasp two additional automation tools - Business Process Flows and Business Rules. As we continue my PL-400 exam series, let's dive in to see what these tools can offer us.
