Historie Dynamics CRM / CE / 365 for Sales

Jako základ pro další články a informace o platformě považuji za nezbytné, abych přiblížil historický kontext a vývoj platformy, která dnes stojí za službou Common Data Service a jistě ji čeká další velká budoucnost, protože byla zvolena jako základ pro budoucí business aplikace Microsoftu a stejných způsobem je otevřená jako stavební základ pro nás a různé aplikace třetích stran.

Azure AD authentication for SSH

To be honest, managing authentication in Linux for multiple users/admins can be a huge pain. Different companies use various tools – generally, they use a centralized tool to distribute developer’s SSH keys. This can still be a pain, however if the company has Azure AD (or Office 365), why not to use those accounts for authentication?

Setting up ADFS with Azure AD as Dynamics 365 Identity Provider

In previous article, we have looked at the possibility to connect Dynamics 365 on-premise directly with Azure AD, which is on one hand really cool, on the other, it doesn’t provide all the features like mobile apps integration. In this article, we are going to explore a production ready solution by leveraging Active Directory Federation Service and Azure AD as a Claims Provider Trust.

Představení Azure Logic Apps

Služba Azure Logic Apps zjednodušuje vytváření automatizovaných škálovatelných workflows (pracovních postupů), které integrují aplikace a data napříč cloudovými službami a on-premise systémy.

Zabezpečte vaše webové aplikace jednoduše pomocí Azure App Service Authentication

Zabezpečte jednoduše vaší aplikaci bez nutnosti většího zásahu do backendu. App Service Authentication vám pomůže zabezpečit váš web nebo mobilní aplikaci. Toho je dosaženo prostřednictvím federované identity. Uživatel se tedy nepřihlašuje oproti vaší aplikaci, ale je přesměrován na třetí stranu (poskytovatele identit), která jej přihlásí a následně je uživatel přesměrován zpět. Vaše aplikace tedy nemusí uchovávat údaje o identitě uživatele. Pro přihlášení do vaší aplikace si můžete vybrat více poskytovatelů identit.

Dynamics 365 Unified User Interface: Direct View Links in SiteMap

You may have used direct links to specific view in the past but you don’t see these sub areas now in your UUI App.

You could have achieved this by using a special URL in the sitemap sub area with the view’s parameters and Dynamics managed to detect your intent when rendering the application navigation.

This is still working but the format has changed for UUI Apps.
