Recapping Integrate 2020

Last week I’ve attended the Integrate conference once again. It was my 5th time attending the conference, and the 4th time I’ve participate as a speaker.

But Integrate 2020  was quite a different experience from the last years. Dubbed Integrate 2020 Remote, to reflect the fact that was yet another event that had to adapt to the pandemic reality that assaulted the planet since the end of last year. Kovai, the company formerly know as BizTalk 360, and the event organizer since its inception in 2012, took some time to decide that the event would go ahead, but when decided that it would be in a new format, didn’t pull any stops to get it running. With almost 1000 online attendees – which is impressive for a paid event, Integrate 2020 had 28 speakers, between Microsoft Program Managers and Microsoft MVPs and as many technical sessions distributed across three days.

MS Build Recap – The AIS Edition

This year’s MS Build was very different – we all know that. But for most of us, me included, was the first opportunity to join the event officially. And what event it was.

Ran across three time zone, with a mix of live sessions, Teams Live events and smaller Teams events, like focus groups, which allowed the attendees to really interact with the product groups and advocates from Microsoft.

This year there were some interesting announcements around the Azure Integration Services technologies. I’ve recently shared those announcements on a Auckland Azure User Group meetup, and thought that, since I already had everything collated, it would be a good idea to just share this with you on the blog as well. So, let’s talk about what is now available, or just \around the corner for AIS

Event Grid Advanced Filtering on Logic Apps

“It was the week before Christmas, and…” and I was actually super busy! One of my main tasks on that week was to implement notifications when a legacy Dynamics AX, still running on-premises, had orders ready to delivery.

My solution was relatively simple (although needed to be generic enough to include other notifications later):

I had a very simple event data being provided by the notification repository:

{
  "NotificationId": "NOT-00001",
  "NotificationType": "SalesOrder.Delivery",
  "CustomerId": "CUST-001",
  "Status": "New",
  "LastModifiedDateTime": "2019-12-20T11:02:28.13"
}

I thought that it was quite an easy setup, but I got stuck for a while setting up the Event Grid Logic App trigger. Why? I was expecting that the trigger would support advanced filters out of the box, on the designer experience, but that’s not the case.
