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.

Dynamics 365 v9 Unit Testing and .NET Confusion

Recently while creating a plugin for Dynamics 365 v9, I ran into an issue trying to connect to CRM via the tooling connector in my unit test project.  The underlying problem was that the .NET version I was using in my unit test was 4.5.2.  This was preventing me from being able to connect to CRM to create my organization service.  I updated the .NET version on my unit test project to 4.6.1 and was then finally able to connect.  I will also add that I am using the latest nuget package version for Dynamics 365 v9.

For consistence, I updated the plugin project I was working on to .NET 4.6.1.  Locally, everything was working great.  I was able to connect to CRM and make sure that all the methods I had written did what they where suppose to do using test driven development practices.

Then when publishing my plugin via the latest version of the plugin registration tool, I received an error and could not publish my plugin.  The error was due to the .NET version of my plugin project not bein…

Getting Started Connector Development

One of the benefits of working with Scribe Online is how easy they make it to create connectors if one does not exist.  In this blog post we are going to look at how to get setup, if this is the first time you have made a connector for Scribe Online.  But, before we get into that, we should first make sure that a connector doesn't already exist that can handle what we need.

We can do this by looking in the Scribe Online Marketplace.  Still not seeing what you need?  Reach out to Scribe directly or ask in the Scribe forums if a connector exists for an application.  There are instances where a connector exists but is not listed in the marketplace.  An example of this is for a client that I built a connector for.  They didn't want to setup a system to run the on-premise agent, so they asked me to set up the connector to run on Scribe's cloud agent.  This meant that I had to submit the connector to Scribe for validation.  Once published the connector is in the Scribe marketpla…
