application. Messages may not be sent to the service consistently.
You have the following requirements:
Queue size must not grow larger than 80 gigabytes (GB).

Use first-in-first-out (FIFO) ordering of messages. Minimize Azure costs.

Question 3 Topic 19

DRAG DROP
A company backs up all manufacturing data to Azure Blob Storage. Admins move blobs from hot storage to archive tier
storage every month.
You must automatically move blobs to Archive tier after they have not been modified within 180 days. The path for any item
that is not archived must be placed in an existing queue. This operation must be performed automatically once a month. You
set the value of TierAgeInDays to -180.
How should you configure the Logic App? To answer, drag the appropriate triggers or action blocks to the correct trigger or
action slots. Each trigger or action block may be used once, more than once, or not at all. You may need to drag the split bar
between panes or scroll to view content.
NOTE: Each correct selection is worth one point.

Mark Question:
Answer:


Explanation:
Box 1: Reoccurance..
To regularly run tasks, processes, or jobs on specific schedule, you can start your logic app workflow with the built-in
Recurrence - Schedule trigger. You can set a date and time as well as a time zone for starting the workflow and a recurrence
for repeating that workflow.
Set the interval and frequency for the recurrence. In this example, set these properties to run your workflow every week.

Box 2: Condition..
To run specific actions in your logic app only after passing a specified condition, add a conditional statement. This control
structure compares the data in your workflow against specific values or fields. You can then specify different actions that run
based on whether or not the data meets the condition.
Box 3: Put a message on a queue
The path for any item that is not archived must be placed in an existing queue.
Note: Under If true and If false, add the steps to perform based on whether the condition is met.
Box 4: ..tier it to Cool or Archive tier. Archive item. Box 5: List blobs 2

Question 9 Topic 19

DRAG DROP
You are developing an Azure solution to collect inventory data from thousands of stores located around the world. Each
store location will send the inventory data hourly to an Azure Blob storage account for processing.
The solution must meet the following requirements:
Begin processing when data is saved to Azure Blob storage.

Filter data based on store location information.

Trigger an Azure Logic App to process the data for output to Azure Cosmos DB.

Enable high availability and geographic distribution.

Allow 24-hours for retries.

Implement an exponential back off data processing.

You need to configure the solution.
What should you implement? To answer, select the appropriate options in the answer area.
NOTE: Each correct selection is worth one point.

Mark Question:
Answer:


Explanation:
Box 1: Azure Event Grid
Blob storage events are pushed using Azure Event Grid to subscribers such as Azure Functions, Azure Logic Apps, or even
to your own http listener. Event Grid provides reliable event delivery to your applications through rich retry policies and dead-
lettering.
Box 2: Azure Logic App
Event Grid uses event subscriptions to route event messages to subscribers. This image illustrates the relationship between
event publishers, event subscriptions, and event handlers.

Box 3: Azure Service Bus
The Event Grid service doesn't store events. Instead, events are stored in the Event Handlers, including ServiceBus,
EventHubs, Storage Queue, WebHook endpoint, or many other supported Azure Services.

You are a developer for a Software as a Service (SaaS) company. You develop solutions that provide the ability to send
notifications by using Azure Notification Hubs.
You need to create sample code that customers can use as a reference for how to send raw notifications to Windows Push
Notification Services (WNS) devices. The sample code must not use external packages.
How should you complete the code segment? To answer, drag the appropriate code segments to the correct locations. Each

Question 12 Topic 19

DRAG DROP
You are developing a REST web service. Customers will access the service by using an Azure API Management instance.
The web service does not correctly handle conflicts. Instead of returning an HTTP status code of 409, the service returns a
status code of 500. The body of the status message contains only the word conflict.
You need to ensure that conflicts produce the correct response.
How should you complete the policy? To answer, drag the appropriate code segments to the correct locations. Each code
segment may be used once, more than once, or not at all. You may need to drag the split bar between panes or scroll to
view content.
NOTE: Each correct selection is worth one point.

Mark Question:
Answer:


Explanation:
Box 1: on-error
Policies in Azure API Management are divided into inbound, backend, outbound, and on-error.
If there is no on-error section, callers will receive 400 or 500 HTTP response messages if an error condition occurs.
Box 2: context
Box 3: context
Box 4: set-status
The return-response policy aborts pipeline execution and returns either a default or custom response to the caller. Default
response is 200 OK with no body. Custom response can be specified via a context variable or policy statements.

Question 15 Topic 19

A company is implementing a publish-subscribe (Pub/Sub) messaging component by using Azure Service Bus. You are
developing the first subscription application.
In the Azure portal you see that messages are being sent to the subscription for each topic. You create and initialize a
subscription client object by supplying the correct details, but the subscription application is still not consuming the
messages.
You need to ensure that the subscription client processes all messages.
Which code segment should you use?

  • A. await subscriptionClient.AddRuleAsync(new RuleDescription(RuleDescription.DefaultRuleName, new TrueFilter()));
  • B. subscriptionClient = new SubscriptionClient(ServiceBusConnectionString, TopicName, SubscriptionName);
  • C. await subscriptionClient.CloseAsync();

a message handler and begins a new thread to receive messages. This handler is waited on every time a new message is
received by the receiver.
