What’s in that patch? January 2020

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 https://sharepointupdates.com/

FIXED – MS Flow HTTP 400 – Managed Metadata

Wanted to share resolution for tagging Managed Metadata term in MS Flow and seeing error HTTP 400.  Managed Metadata terms are stored in SharePoint with GUID identifiers.   That enables us to rename terms while preserving all current tag usage.  However, it means that we must use GUID when adding and updating tag values to ensure lookup saves successful.  Cheers

Error

HTTP 400.  The data returned from the tagging UI was not formatted correctly.

Resolution

Format text for Managed Metadata tag as “VALUE | GUID”.  For example, here we have “JavaScript|6f634666-d2a6-4367-9b65-4bb4ab33afc6” in the MS Flow Set Variable set.  Publish, run flow, and confirm SPListItem successfully added to demo list.

VIDEO – Azure Function running F5 on localhost

Wanted to share brief for creating a new Azure Function 2.0 on localhost.  Followed quick start wizard within Azure for steps.  Initially received error message pressing F5 but able to resolve by navigate down three folders and run command manually.  Root cause was local PowerShell configuration.   Updating “$profile” to remove Change Directory commands (“CD C:\CODE”) resolved the F5 error with Azure function not starting.

Thank you to @nthonyChu and @fiveisprime for help troubleshooting.   Cheers.
