Using GenAI – Meeting Minutes Service

Using GenAI – Meeting Minutes Service

In one of my last blog post I outlined the use case of generating meeting minutes from a meeting protocol. Furthermore, I have shown how I tested my concept in a simple way and then designed a solution. For the sake of simplicity, I have not yet explained the technical part of creating the meeting minutes. This means, I will share this time more details about my Meeting Minutes API in Microsoft Azure with you. Before I start, I select…

Using GenAI – Generate my Meeting Minutes!

Using GenAI – Generate my Meeting Minutes!

Today I will share another example where I utilize Generative AI with you. Although the story is explained quite quickly. Documenting meeting minutes can be a tedious task, especially when I am an active participant. However, the outcome of the meeting is crucial as I need to share the action items and results with my colleagues. What if I had a buddy who could do this task for me? Right, I use my Generative AI for this. In other words,…

Logging in Custom Connector Code

Logging in Custom Connector Code

Today, I’m excited to introduce you to a new feature that addresses a common challenge faced by both Citizen Developers and Pro Developers. Yes, you guessed it – we’re delving into the world of creating custom connectors. But I’m not talking about the usual tasks like setting up requests, responses, or authentication. No, the real test comes when we venture into coding within our custom connectors.See more here at Microsoft Docs: Write code in my custom connector. Moreover, there’s a…

Authorize from Swagger UI

Authorize from Swagger UI

Authorization is a must for APIs, there is no question about that! On the other hand, development and testing becomes more difficult. So I’d like to introduce you to the feature “Authorize” in Swagger UI that I recently discovered. I have to say, I’m impressed! As a developer, I often use Swagger UI to test my APIs, but I’ve always struggle when it comes to authentication. In the past, I couldn’t test my API in Swagger UI because authentication was…

Moreover, I use the Microsoft Power Platform together with AWS cloud in perfect harmony. So here is the story: some days ago, I stumbled upon a terraforming process for new AWS Accounts. The initial idea was, to prepare reusable and preconfigured building blocks. In other words, my…

PCF in Dataverse for Microsoft Teams

PCF in Dataverse for Microsoft Teams

After creating my Microsoft OpenAI powered Intelligent Assistant canvas app was still one open question for me, “Can I install and uses my Intelligent Assistant also in Dataverse for Teams?” You might also have the question, “Why would you consider bringing your Intelligent Assistant into DataVerse for Teams?” Well, integrating my Intelligent Assistant into DataVerse for Teams offers several advantages. One of them is that canvas apps empower users to create intuitive and tailored interfaces for data management, enhancing collaboration…

Build a Microservice for Power Platform

Build a Microservice for Power Platform

Building microservices instead of a monolithic system is state of the art. These also apply to Power Platform, PowerApps, and Power Automated Flows. You don’t have to solve every problem with the same technology! In other words, sometimes it’s better to build a microservice for Power Platform to improve your apps and flows. This is especially true if your PowerApps or Power Automated Flows require additional power in terms of speed or functionality for a certain data processing. Here, one…

Business Central in Dataverse with Virtual Tables

Business Central in Dataverse with Virtual Tables

In my session at Dataverse Summit 2022 I also introduced Business Central’s feature, the virtual tables in Dataverse. Virtual tables complement the possibilities such as Data Sync and Connectors to connect both worlds. In my opinion, virtual tables are the best way of integration. Unlike data synchronization, you do not copy the data from one system to another. Furthermore, virtual tables in Dataverse are similar to physical tables in usage and this is a clear advantage in contrast to connectors….

Power Automate Flows as API

Power Automate Flows as API

Did you ever create an API based on Power Automated Flows as endpoints? You might be wondering, why would you do that? Trust me sometimes there is a reason. Furthermore, with the growing Citizen Developer Community and the amount of Power Platform solutions being created, this will become increasingly important in the future. If you have joined my session Power Automate Flows as API at the Azure Developer Community Day 2022 at Microsoft in Munich, you already know the story….

Transforming API Responses

Transforming API Responses

Custom connectors are amazing to consume external APIs in Canvas Apps or Power Automate Flows. But what are you doing, when the external API response does not fit for you? To be honest, this week I had the same issue with an own API. I set up my custom connector and everything was fine. The connector worked as expected and my operation provided a response. So far so good… But, on the second look, I found out my response won’t…
