What’s in that patch? May 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/ If you found this helpful, please leave a comment.

Explore SharePoint REST API with Chrome F12 cURL (bash) to Postman

Wanted to create demo for how to leverage F12 tools to capture SharePoint Online REST api calls and replay into REST Postman.   Allows adjustment of HTTP headers, inspecting output, and execute test API calls.  Postman provides benefits of storing history, export data, and fine tuning the API headers.

Leveraging Chrome F12 enables us to quickly create a valid HTTP POST with correct authentication HTTP  headers, cookies, and endpoint URL.  Cheers.

VIDEO – AngularJS SPA and WebAPI SQL database secured with Azure AD – MS FLOW EMAIL(Part 3 of 3)

Continuing series with more detail on security.   Add MS Flow to read REST API data with Azure AD token.     MS Flow acts as HTTP client same as end user web browser.   MS Flow can execute HTTP POST pair to first download Access Token and then retrieve HTTP JSON data with Azure AD “Bearer” token.   Chrome F12 and Postman are essential tools for mapping out HTTP POST format with headers, body, and expected JSON reply schema.

When complete, we have daily MS Flow scheduled email which downloads JSON from WebAPI via secure AzureAD token.  Great way to protect API endpoints and provide rich email features.  Cheers.
