SCRIBE Online Status Monitor


When working with cloud solutions it's always important to understand the options you have available to monitor that service.  For SCRIBE Online, they have a website you can go to to see the current status of:

  • Agents
  • API
  • Connectors
  • Event Solutions
  • User Interface
  • Sandbox
Not only can you see current statuses but you can also see information about current incidents and past incidents.  Also they offer the ability to sign up for alerts by email, text and RSS.  Personally, I am signed up for email and text alerts.  To help keep the team of people I work with update, I setup RSS notification within our Microsoft Team's account.  I also recommend that if you are a consultant, you make sure any client you have setup with SCRIBE of integrations, you let them know about this page.

Here are some helpful tips for working with the site:
  • Subscribing To All Updates:

    1. Navigate to https://trust.scribesoft.com/
    2. Click on "SUBSCRIBE TO UPDATES" button
    3. Choose how you want to subscribe:
    4. Envelope = email
      1. Phone = text message
      2. Comment Bubble = support page
      3. RSS = Subscribe by rss or atom rss feeds
  • Subscribe To Current Incident:
    • If there is a current incident you will see a yellow banner with a message under it.  To subscribe to only that incident do the following:
    1. In the yellow banner click on "Subscribe"
    2. Input email address and/or phone number in the pop up
    3. Click "SUBSCRIBE TO INCIDENT"
As I stated above if there is a current incident happening you will see this in yellow as soon as you load the page.  Scrolling down the page you will see the current statuses for each of the items I outlined at the beginning of this post.  Under that you will see about the last 2 weeks broken down by day.  Here you can see if anything happened on those days.  At the vary bottom of the page you will see "Incident History".  Clicking on it takes you to page where you can see past incidents by month.

Azure Blob Storage For Storing Microsoft Dynamics 365 Attachments

In my Living In SCRIBE Online Blog I talked about work I did to migrate CRM 4.0 on-premise to Dynamics 365 using SCRIBE Online.  In that blog I mentioned how there are about 80 GB worth of attachments that had to be moved into the cloud.  Well this could quickly get expensive if we stored them directly in CRM.  Also, this client wasn't using SharePoint.  So what option do we have to store this data so end users can access the data?  Why not use Azure Blob Storage?

Microsoft has an app in AppSource to move attachments from CRM to Azure blob storage.  Not only does it all for this, but it also has a web resource in it so you can allow for bulk uploads.  Here is how to set it up:

1) Go To AppSource
2) Install the Attachment Management App by clicking the "Get It Now" button under the image.
3) While its installing go to Azure and setup your blob storage account.
4) For each CRM instance you will need to setup 2 containers in your blob storage.  One is for email attachments …

Updated To Version 1.7 - Azure Blob Storage For Storing Microsoft Dynamics 365 Attachments

In another post I talked about using Azure Blob Storage to store CRM attachments in Azure rather then in CRM.  Today I installed the app in a clients CRM system and found that Microsoft Labs updated the App to version 1.7.  This change had a lot of updates from UI to how to setup notes attachment movement.  Also they now allow for moving of existing attachments.  Here is the updated steps:

1) Go To AppSource
2) Install the Attachment Management App by clicking the "Get It Now" button under the image.
3) While its installing go to Azure and setup your blob storage account.
4) For each CRM instance you will need to setup 2 containers in your blob storage.  One is for email attachments and the other is for notes attachments.  So if you have a production instance and sandbox instance you will need to have 4 containers (DevEmails, DevNotes, ProdEmails, ProdNotes).  If you want to separate note attachments by entity, then create one container per entity.  The DevNotes or ProdNote…
