• Get Record CDS action missing attributes in Government Cloud

    While most of you might not be experiencing this issue, it is still a good workaround for a situation that you might have. Recently we had a situation that when we tried to retrieve the account record using the Get record action in our Government Cloud instance, but the results did not retrieve all the attributes. The attribute that we were really having an issue with was the address1_name.

  • Integrate CDS and SQL Server with Power Automate and On-Premise Data Gateway

    In a recent blog I posted a few days ago, I posted how to use Azure Service Bus and a Listener application to integrate between the Common Data Service (Dynamics 365 or Power Apps Model Driven Application) and an On Premise SQL Service database. As mentioned that there are a few easier ways to implement this, I wanted to demonstrate how easy it would be to perform similar functionality using a Microsoft Power Automate Flow that connects to the On-Premise Data Gateway

  • Configure Azure Service Bus to integrate between CDS and On-Premise SQL database

    In this blog post I will demonstrate how to use Azure Service Bus and a Listener application to integrate between the Common Data Service (Dynamics 365 or Power Apps Model Driven Application) and an On Premise SQL Service database.

  • Eventbrite to CDS Integration - Part 1

    In this series of posts, I will demonstrate how to integrate between Eventbrite and the Power Platform by creating a Model Driven App to store event information, Creation of Microsoft Flow to execute when a new event is created or a new order is added to an event in Eventbrite, and the creation of a Custom Connector to retrieve the event details from Eventbrite.

  • Eventbrite to CDS Integration - Part 2 (Eventbrite Settings)

    In the second post will concentrate on the configuration of Eventbrite. We assume that you have already an Eventbrite account and you can create your own events. If you don’t have an Eventbrite account yet, this is the time to create one. You only need an email address and to set a password in order to create an Eventbrite account. Eventbrite is available as a free or paid service. Everything in this series of posts was done using the free Eventbrite account.

  • Eventbrite to CDS Integration - Part 3 (Custom Connector)

    In the third post will create our custom connector in order to connect with Eventbrite. The custom connector will allow us to call the Eventbrite api to retrieve the required information about the Events and the Attendees that have not been provided by the Webhook.

  • Eventbrite to CDS Integration - Part 4 (Event Flow)

    In this fourth post we will update the original flow that we created for when a new event is created in Eventbrite. The flow should have a couple of steps as the baseline. The steps include When a HTTP request is received, and the Initialize Variable action.

  • Eventbrite to CDS Integration - Part 5 (Attendee Flow)

    In this fifth post we will update the original flow that we created for when a new attendee is registered in Eventbrite. Your flow should have a couple of steps as the baseline. The steps include When a HTTP request is received, and the Initialize Variable action.

  • Eventbrite to CDS Integration - Part 6 (Testing)

    In the final post, we will quickly view the results of this entire process. We will create an Event in Eventbrite, and add an attendee to this event, and then verify that the Event has been created in CDS as well as Attendee added to the Contacts entity and linked to that Event.

  • Format Text by using PCF Control and Regular Expressions

    On one of our recent projects, we had a requirement to only allow valid Tax Id Numbers on that field. There are various ways of implementing this, but as the direction seems to be to shift the development of these kind of features to custom controls, we decided to implement it as a PCF custom control.
