Question 1 Topic 8, Mixed Questions

A company plans to replicate a Dynamics 365 Sales database into an Azure SQL Database instance for reporting purposes.
The Data Export Service solution has been installed.
You need to configure the Data Export service.
Which three actions should you perform? Each correct answer presents part of the solution.
NOTE: Each correct selection is worth one point.

  • A. Enable auditing for all entities that must be replicated to Azure SQL Database.
  • B. Create an export profile that specifies all the entities that must be replicated.
  • C. Set up server-based integration.
  • D. Enable change tracking for all entities that must be replicated to Azure SQL Database.
  • E. Create an Azure SQL Database service in the same tenant as the Dynamics 365 Sales environment.

Explanation:
B: The Export Profile is the core concept of the Data Export Service. The Export Profile gathers set up and configuration
information to synchronize data with the destination database. As part of the Export Profile, the administrator provides a list
of entities to be exported to the destination database.
D: Only entities that have change tracking enabled can be added to the Export Profile.
Incorrect Answers:
E: To use the Data Export Service the customer engagement apps (i.e., Dynamics 365 Sales, Dynamics 365 Customer
Service, Dynamics 365 Field Service, Dynamics 365 Marketing, and Dynamics 365 Project Service Automation) and Azure
Key Vault services must operate under the same tenant and within the same Azure Active Directory. However, the Azure
SQL Database service can be in the same or a different tenant.

Question 2 Topic 8, Mixed Questions

HOTSPOT
A delivery service uses a canvas app to track and deliver packages. The app uses SQL Server as a data store. The
database includes the following tables:

The app includes the following code to save all required information. (Line numbers are included for reference only.)

For each of the following statements, select Yes if the statement is true. Otherwise, select No.
NOTE: Each correct selection is worth one point.
Hot Area:

Mark Question:
Answer:


Explanation:
The ClearCollect function deletes all the records from a collection. Syntax: ClearCollect( Collection, Item, ... )
Collection Required. The collection that you want to clear and then add data to. Item(s) - Required. One or more records or
tables to add to the data source.
Box 1: Yes
The Patch function in Power Apps modifies or creates one or more records in a data source, or merges records outside of a
data source. Use Patch with the Defaults function to create records.
Box 2: No
The return value of Patch is the record that you modified or created. If you created a record, the return value may include
properties that the data source generated automatically. However, the return value doesn't provide a value for fields of a
related table.
For example, you use Set(MyAccount, Patch(Accounts, First(Account), 'Account Name': "Example name"); and then
MyAccount.'Primary Contact'.'Full Name'. You can't yield a full name in this case. Instead, to access the fields of a related
table, use a separate lookup such as:
LookUp(Accounts, Account = MyAccount.Account).'Primary Contact'.'Full Name
Box 3: Yes
Box 4: Yes
Merge records outside of a data source.
Specify two or more records that you want to merge. Records are processed in the order from the beginning of the argument
list to the end, with later property values overriding earlier ones.
Patch returns the merged record and doesn't modify its arguments or records in any data sources.

Mark Question:
Answer:


Explanation:

combination of columns. Box 2: Delete AlternateKey1 and re-create it with all three fields

Question 4 Topic 8, Mixed Questions

Note: This question is part of a series of questions that present the same scenario. Each question in the series contains a
unique solution that might meet the stated goals. Some question sets might have more than once correct solution, while
others might not have a correct solution.
After you answer a question in this section, you will NOT be able to return to it. As a result, these questions will not appear in
the review screen.
You are designing a one-way integration from the Common Data Service to another system.
You must use an Azure Function to update the other system. The integration must send only newly created records to the
other system. The solution must support scenarios where a component of the integration is unavailable for more than a few
seconds to avoid data loss.
You need to design the integration solution.
Solution: Register a service endpoint in the Common Data Service that connects to an Azure Service Bus queue.
Create and register an Azure-aware plug-in that uses the service endpoint.
Register a step on the plug-in that runs asynchronously on the records Create message and in the post-operation stage.
Configure the Azure Function to process records as they are added to the queue.
Does the solution meet the goal?

  • A. Yes
  • B. No
Mark Question:

B

Explanation:
Plug-ins are one of two methods used to initiate posting the message containing the data context to the Azure Service Bus,
the other method being a custom workflow activity.
Note: Microsoft Dataverse supports integration with Azure.
For the Dataverse and Azure connection to work, there must be at least one solution in an Azure Service Bus solution
account, where the solution contains one or more service endpoints. For a queue endpoint contract, a listener doesnt have
to be actively listening.

subcomponents.
The solution must meet the following requirements:
Ensure that the BOMs are enabled to include the necessary subcomponents.

Report changes to the BOMs or their sub-components that are made by engineers.

Answer:


Explanation:
Box 1: Configure entity relationship
Box 2: Configure entity change tracking
The change tracking feature in Microsoft Dataverse provides a way to keep the data synchronized in an efficient manner by
detecting what data has changed since the data was initially extracted or last synchronized. Previously, without this new
feature, it was difficult to build a reliable and efficient mechanism to determine what records had changed in Dataverse.

Box 1: Event handler
An event handler is the place where the event is sent. The handler takes some further action to process the event.
Box 2: Event subscription

Question 11 Topic 8, Mixed Questions

HOTSPOT
A company is building a new model-driven app.
The app must integrate with a number of on-premises and cloud solutions. No VPNs are in place.
You need to determine the method for each integration.
Which methods should you use? To answer, select the appropriate options in the answer area.
NOTE: Each correct selection is worth one point.
Hot Area:

Mark Question:
Answer:


Explanation:
Box 1: Webhook
With Dataverse, you can send data about events that occur on the service to a web app by using webhooks. A webhook is a
lightweight HTTP pattern for connecting web APIs and services with a publish-and-subscribe model. Webhook senders notify
receivers about events by making requests to receiver endpoints with some information about the events.
Webhooks enable developers and ISVs to integrate Dataverse data with their own custom code hosted on external services.
Box 2: Azure Service Bus
Service Bus provides a secure and reliable communication channel between Dataverse runtime data and external, cloud-
based line-of-business apps. This capability is especially useful in keeping disparate Dataverse systems or other Dataverse
servers synchronized with business data changes.
Box 3: Azure Event hub
Azure Event Hubs is a big data streaming platform and event ingestion service. It can receive and process millions of events
per second. Data sent to an event hub can be transformed and stored by using any real-time analytics provider or
batching/storage adapters.
Note: The most popular approaches in Dataverse involve webhooks, Azure messaging (Service Bus, Event Hubs), Azure
Logic Apps, or Power Automate.
