What’s in that patch? October 2019

NOTE – PDF format updated to include both SharePoint 2013, 2016, and 2019 notes.

Ever wondered what fixes are inside of a given CU?   Please see attached PDF with full detail. I wanted a new format for easy reading.   Show management and make the business case for why downtime should be taken to apply CUs.  Also posted at http://sharepointupdates.com/

ODOPEN – Onedrive Open Protocol

Recently I had F12 network trace open and launch OneDrive “Sync” button from SharePoint Modern pages toolbar.   A strange protocol showed on the network activity.  Not HTTP or HTTPS, but “ODOPEN://”

Application launcher custom URL prefixes enable web browsers to handoff to local desktop applications.   Here, ODOPEN is One Drive Open and activates the OneDrive client by passing parameters for the scope destination document library to sync.

Parameters are enumerated below in the Code section.   GUID for the scope (Site / Web / Library) identify the target data.   Current user detail is passed with user GUID and user Email.  Interesting to see how the “Sync” button works internally and wanted to share notes.

Cheers

VIDEO – Azure CICD Pipeline with SP Framework (SPFX)

Below end to end demonstration of creating SharePoint Framework (SPFX 1.9) with Azure Dev Ops (ADO) code repository to hold original source.  ADO uses for source code repositry (repo) to hold the SPFX project code.

From there, ADO “Build” creates SPPKG dynamically with a Ubuntu container VM that employs NODE and NPM install to load all dependency.   Centralized container build has the benefit of uniform consistency.   No developer workstation configurations.   No server setting inconsistency.

Finally ADO “Release” copies the SPPKG into SharePoint Online App Catalog with Office 365 Command Line Interface (CLI).   From there, it can be added to page on sites across the O365 Tenant.

Cheers.
