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

VIDEO – F12 Trick to Peek at AngularJS Scope

Wanted to share trick for peeking into AngularJS scope with F12 tools and DOM selector.   After selecting any HTML DOM element you can “peek” into the “$scope” with variables available at that level.   No special browser extension or plug-ins needed.   If debugging AngularJS frequently check out Batarang for more advanced browser F12 tools.  For a quick check be sure to memorize “angular.element($0).scope()” for typing into console.   Realize that Angular (2+) has superseded AngularJS 1x.   However, many AngularJS applications continue to need support.   Tricks like this make that work easy.







FIXED – Azure Deployment failed (Exceed vCores for SQL Managed Instance)

Recently encountered error below when deploying a new SharePoint Server 2019 Small Farm High Availability (HA) with SQL Managed Instance.

Root cause was Azure Region.   Selected “US North Central” which doesn’t offer that feature as of today (04/19/2020).   Selecting different region resolved.

Below is a quick reference table showing which US Azure data centers offer SQL Managed Instance, for planning future deployment.   Cheers
