Using and abusing the Compose JSON action in Logic Apps 2

Using and abusing the Compose JSON action in Logic Apps

So that Compose JSON action in Azure Logic Apps is kinda under-documented. At least, I had to figure it out all by myself, but when you get the hang of it, it is actually quite simple. The action accepts JSON and only JSON. So don’t you dare to enter invalid JSON. You will be punished by a Logic App that you can’t save. Compose JSON So the action is meant to compose...

Microsoft Flow – my first IFTTT flow

When Microsoft Flow was first announced I was not that impressed. I didn’t know exactly what I could get out of it and I didn’t really look into the product, until I saw Charles Lamanna’s talk at Integrate 2016. His talk was very inspiring and above all, it triggered me on actually using Microsoft Flow. Charles triggered me with one simple example: his automation of reviewing job applications. Instead of having to...

Integrate 2016 – Day 1 Recap

I am in London at the Integrate 2016 conference, again perfectly organized by BizTalk 360.

Adding a JSON schema to your Logic App – Generate, Copy & Paste

And you know what? Yes we can! Let’s start by creating an easy Logic App...

Logic Apps and the purpose of Azure Functions

I have been looking at Azure Logic Apps since last year, but I couldn’t find a purpose for it, except retweeting a tweet. I couldn’t find a real world scenario for it. It was just too limited. There are connectors, but what should I do with the message? Maybe a BizTalk mapping or fire a business rule? And you need BizTalk Services for that. I don’t know about BizTalk Services, but...

A very first look at Logic Apps Preview Refresh

Finally! Well, that’s what it feels like in this day and age anyway. We can’t even wait until the next phone gets released, before we even got the last one. But Microsoft refreshed their Logic Apps Preview and took it to the next level. The next level, but for sure not the final level. Just a short post to see what’s new here. I will be playing with it a little more the...
