One taketh one giveth (or other way around). Returning a favor to AK who asked: How does the portals handle uploading of virus? (Want your favor returned? Send your awesome tip to email@example.com!) There are multiple mechanisms you can put in place to protect your users from the viruses (no, not that virus, unfortunately).
I need to perform some data… uhm… “augmentation”. Easy as using Power Automate – get all the records, loop through, fudge I mean augment the data. Right? Except there could be more than 100,000 records. Why 100K? That’s the maximum you can get with the List Records action. (Wanted to insert a reference here but […]
Today’s tip is from AK. (Be like AK, and send your next awesome tip to firstname.lastname@example.org). Adding a subgrid to model-driven form in the maker portal brings the search box which takes an extra row. If you want to hide it, you may tempt to switch to classic and clear the Display search box. Don’t […]
Today’s tip is indirectly from Alex Shlega. Alex is very thorough in his writing so I was a bit surprised that his answer to running a synchronous flow from a webhook was a ‘no’. The reason cited was that CDS “execution pipeline” won’t wait for the Flow completion. Well, it will indeed not, but only […]
Today’s tip has nothing to do with Power <insert noun here>. Not because I have nothing to talk about but because I feel strongly about today’s subject. tl;dr When sharing a link, remove en-us from the URL. What are you talking about? We all consume and produce a fair amount of the computer-related material. Being […]
When we talked about triggering Power Automate on Associate/Disassociate, I did set aside the task of “dealing with horrendous serialization”. Short version: it’s a RemoteExecutionObject that is serialized in the message and every DataCollection property is serialized as an array of objects with the key and value properties. Fair enough. But in the jsonified world […]
It’s not every day one gets to chime in on a post from Jerry, the lifetime tipster and Power Automate connoisseur. In this post Jerry talks about When a record is created, updated, or deleted trigger in CDS (current environment) connector and how to tell the event that triggered the flow using a clever combination […]
Is there a smart way to get an Environment Variable in a flow? Jonas “Giving XrmToolBox a good” Rapp Say no mo…
Many to many relationship is everywhere, from good old marketing lists to web roles in Power Apps portals. The secret sauce is in the little hidden intersect entity holding the relationship together, those of you who used FetchXml Builder from XrmToolBox to craft a query, are very familiar with. The messages to control the relationship […]
Smart people are very useful. Sometimes just talking to them helps you understand the technology better. Consider, for example, John Liu educating ignorant yours truly about the intricacies of failing Power Automate flows. tl;dr For a flow run to be a success, all execution paths including those containing skipped actions, must complete.
