Flows not triggering after environment copy

Having read this nice tip from Ankita Chavan posted here https://crmtipoftheday.com/1351/flows-not-triggering-after-an-environment-copy/ it did not resolve our problem. Our instance was not in administration mode and it still did not work. This forced me to create a ticket with Microsoft to solve this issue.

Here are the troubleshooting notes:
- you have flows with a CDS trigger
- none of them are working
- the flows are team flows - connection owned by a different user
- we have created a new CDS flow - it worked
- we have exported an old CDS flow and used the current user's connection and it worked
- you remembered you have copied another org over the current environment

Delete the trigger and recreate it
Internally it was checked with MS team and it seems since it's a CDS trigger copying another environment over the current one will not be supported for the trigger.
What will happen if you copy a different environment over, first all the triggers will be deleted and the other's environment's triggers will be copied on top of this.
So a copy with flows is not supported at the moment.
Then as a workaround if this happens what you can do is delete the triggers you have in that CDS and disable/enable the flows again to recreate the triggers.

Yet Another Address Autocomplete PCF Control–powered by Bing

In this blog post I will not go into detail in how to install all the pre-requisites that are required to build and run PCF controls. My goal was to build a new PCF control and get into coding of PCF controls as fast as possible.

Here are a few links to articles that will help you installing the pre-requisites (Microsoft PowerApps CLI) https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/developer/component-framework/get-powerapps-cli
Other good references to get into this topic:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/developer/component-framework/create-custom-controls-using-pcf
I looked through the Guido Preite’s https://pcf.gallery/ which will help you find appropriate use cases / examples for your own needs. It did not take very long to find a simple example to start with: Andrew Butenko's https://pcf.gallery/address-autocomplete/
A few moments later I had the idea to create yet another address autocomplete control b…

Regarding SPFieldMultiLineText (Add HTML/URL content to a field) programmatically

I recently tried so set some HTML content in a SharePoint list column of type SPFieldMultiLineText.

My first approach was this piece of code:

SPFieldMultiLineText field = item.Fields.GetFieldByInternalName("Associated Documents") as SPFieldMultiLineText; StringBuilder docList = new StringBuilder(); docList.Append(""); foreach (DataRow docRow in addDocs) { DataRow[] parent = dr.Table.DataSet.Tables[0].Select("DOK_ID=" + docRow["DOK_MGD_ID"].ToString()); if (parent != null && parent.Length > 0) { docList.AppendFormat("{1}", parent[0]["FilePath"].ToString(), parent[0]["Title"].ToString()); } } if (docList.Length > 0) { // remove trailing tag docList.Remove(docList.Length-5, 5); } docList.Append(" "); string newValue = docList.ToString(); item[field.Title] = newValue;
What this code does is to get all associated documents to the main document and to add these document uri links to the "Assoc…

Set Multi-OptionSet values with a custom workflow activity

As the relatively new multi-optionset field type arrived with v.9 of Dynamics 365 the need to set values via workflow is quite a common requirement. So I searched within the community to find some ideas on how to solve and create such a workflow activity and so I stumbled upon Demian Raschkovan’s Workflow Tools with can be found on his github repository: https://github.com/demianrasko/Dynamics-365-Workflow-Tools/blob/master/msdyncrmWorkflowTools/msdyncrmWorkflowTools/Class/MapMultiSelectOptionSet.cs

It gave me some basic ideas to reach my requirements which are: Should be generic for any type of entity Ability to specify the attribute name of the required multi-optionset for that entity Provide a list of multi-optionset values (comma-separated) Keep existing values (True/Yes => add provided values / False/No => replace all values with the provided values Remove specific value(s) from an existing set of values
My code sample (without other dependencies):
