When consuming messages from an Azure service bus the order may not be guaranteed due to the brokered based messaging scheme where multiple consumers can consume messages from the bus. Sure you can force the Logic App to execute as a single instance but then you sacrifice performance and scalability. You can also use ReceiveAndDelete but then you loose the transactional nature of the bus. Ultimately to ensure a message is consumed in the correct order using the transactional nature of the bus you would add a sequence number to each message and use this to enforce the ordering.

To achieve ordered delivery using Logic Apps, you would need to ensure all related messages are consumed by the same Logic App instance and for this we use the session Id property on the service bus. Below is the full workflow process to force ordered delivery using Logic Apps and session…

This allows you to push updated Azure API Management configurations to this internal Git repository as a new branch and then Deploy the configuration to API Management.

The internal Git repository in Azure API Management is not intended to be used for a normal development workflow. You’ll still want to develop and store your Azure API management configuration in an external Git repository such as GitHub or TFS/VSTS and then copy configuration updates to the internal Git repository in Azure API Management using some sort of automated process (e.g. Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery could be adopted for this).

The Internal Git Repository

To access the Internal Git Repository requires short lived (30 days maximum) Git credentials to…

While AutoSave is enabled your work will automatically be saved, similar to the Office mobile apps.

If you’re not already saving your work to the Cloud (OneDrive or another) then you should seriously consider doing this. It provides a better experience and also peace of mind that your content is backed up to the cloud and accessible from just about any device.

Enjoy!

Recently, I’ve created an audition video to become a Pluralsight author.  I wanted to share this video, as it might be interesting for you.  The video gives an introduction to Azure Logic Apps and finishes with a great demo about Saleforce integration (at 5:43).

Enjoy!

After the installation is complete, when you open up SSMS 17.2 and look at the About dialog you will see the following components updated:

Sadly we still don’t have an official Dark theme for SQL Server Management Studio. I recall reading comments from the SQL team last year that they needed to do work on all the dialogs before releasing this theme. If the base SSMS IDE supports the Dark theme than just release it You can work on the dialogs as needed and provide them in future updates.

Enjoy!
