Calling SharePoint CSOM from Azure Functions (Part 3) | Bob German’s Vantage Point
This series will show you how to call SharePoint’s Client-Side Object
Model (CSOM) from an Azure Function. It’s divided into three sections,
in hopes that the first two sections are reusable in other scenarios. I’ll probably add more scenarios in the future, but will keep the URL’s the same.
Overview of labels – Office 365
Labels in Office 365 can help you take the right actions on the right content. With labels, you can classify data across your organization for governance, and enforce retention rules based on that classification.
With labels, you can enable people in your organization to apply a label manually to content in Outlook on the web, Outlook 2010 and later, OneDrive, SharePoint, and Office 365 groups.
Apply labels to content automatically if it matches specific conditions, such as when the content contains:
- Specific types of sensitive information. This is available for content in SharePoint and OneDrive.
- Specific keywords that match a query you create. This is available for content in Exchange, SharePoint, OneDrive, and Office 365 groups.
Custom modern page header and footer using SharePoint Framework
To extend the functionality of my SharePoint-hosted add-in to modern pages using the SharePoint Framework, I created a new SharePoint client-side solution containing an application customizer extension to handle the rendering of the header and footer on all modern pages, reading the same configuration values from the site property bag that are set by the add-in part from my original SharePoint-hosted add-in.
Azure Function Development-Deployment Strategy
The goal is to be able to have a set of functions that do work against our SharePoint tenant. How they are triggered (HTTP Trigger, Timer Trigger, etc) is irrelevant, what is relevant is that I want to leverage the same Azure Application and its corresponding certificate, as well as some common code for all the functions.
Embrace the power of SPFx WebPart properties
Spfx Web Part properties can now have metadata, which can be indexed by search engines, and can auto-update if it is a URL and the refrecned asset is moved.
The Prince Estate and Pantone Unveil Love Symbol #2
The Prince Estate, alongside Pantone Color Institute™, the global color authority, announced today the creation of a standardized custom color to represent and honor international icon, Prince. The (naturally) purple hue, represented by his “Love Symbol #2” was inspired by his custom-made Yamaha purple piano, which was originally scheduled to go on tour with the performer before his untimely passing at the age of 57. The color pays tribute to Prince’s indelible mark on music, art, fashion and culture.
Introducing the PnP Provisioning Engine
This short whitepaper introduces the PnP Provisioning Engine […] now days with the new CAM the approach should be based on provisioning artifacts using the so called „remote provisioning“ technique. But what does mean to do „remote provisioning“? It means using the Client Side Object Model (CSOM) to provision artifacts, instead of using the feature framework.
Well, and what if I want to model and provision artifacts using a test and a production environment? Or what if I want to automate provisioning of artifacts, just because I want to sell my customizations to multiple customers? Or again, what if I want to define a custom site template that I want to re-use across multiple site instances, like customer-oriented sites, or project-oriented sites?
Using the new PnP Provisioning Engine, you can model – even simply by using the web browser – the design of Site Columns, Content Types, List Definitions and Instances, Composed Looks, Pages (either WebPart Pages or Wiki Pages), and much more. When you are done with the design, you can export what you have done into a persistent provisioning template format (XML, JSON, or whatever you like), and you can apply that template to as many target sites as you like.
Is there a coherent ideology at the core of Silicon Valley? Adam Greenfield responds
„It is inescapable that those determining the shape of our choices when engaging with Information Technology are physically and culturally located in a very small region. Apple, Facebook, and Google are within a stones throw of each other, and even though they recruit from all over the world, there is an astonishing physic self-similarity among the people who work there, whatever their national or cultural origin.“ – Adam Greenfield, author of Radical Technologies
Running #ProjectOnline #PowerShell in #Azure using #AzureFunctions #PPM #Cloud #Flow #LogicApp Part2
Following on from part 1 where I introduced the idea of automating certain Microsoft 365 PPM Project Online customisations using PowerShell, Microsoft Flow / Azure Logic Apps and Azure Functions, in part 2 I will set up an example automation for creating a Project Online event driven snapshot application on project published without having to set up any server or write any complied code!
