A common scenario is where you have a vast number of external customers that need access to a set of company services. To add security to the backend service, you can create an application in Azure AD and next add an inbound policy to login to AAD using Graph.
When you add a Resource Deployment step in a release pipeline, you will have to select an Azure Resource Manager service connection (or service principal) instead of the subscription itself.

From there you can create build and release pipelines for CI/CD via DevOps. You also need to realize that Flows are linked to Sharepoint lists or libraries. That means: no reuse, but rebuild per list/library.
How to define a datetime field in a REST service. Because json doesn’t know datetime fields, I thought you were forced to use a string in combination with a regular expression. But in fact you can actually use a DateTime field.
Zapier is an automation tool that let’s you create workflows between your apps and services. I used Zapier to collect client reviews for the Van Gogh Museum from Facebook, Google and TripAdvisor. All these reviews are added to a single platform, the so-called ReviewTracker Platform. ReviewTracker created both a trigger and an action for Zapier.

Parameterizing a Logic App can be a tedious exercise. This is why Jeff Hollan created the LogicApp Template Creator. First you will have to download the zip file from GitHub. Next you will have to extract it to a folder of your choice. For example: D:\LogicAppTemplateCreator\ The Logic App Template creator assumes you have deployed…
When securing webservices that are exposed to external clients, you can use basic authentication, client certificates or Azure Active Directory B2C. In this post, I focus on the use of client certificates and describe the inbound policies we can use.
