こんばんは、SfB サポートのワトソンです。 Skype for Business Online ではこれまで、組織の利用形態やコンプライアンス要件に合わせて、 会議やクライアントポリシーのカスタマイズをすることができなく、準備されている一般的なポリシーの適用を行う必要がございました。 あらゆる企業のコンプライアンス要件を満たし、Office 365・Skype for Business Online の利用を促進するため、 現在 Skype for Business Online では、クライアントポリシーおよびに、会議ポリシーのカスタマイズが可能になりました。 クライアントポリシーとは、クライアントとしてどのような機能が利用可能かについて設定をするポリシーとなります。 設定した内容については、Skype for Business クライアントがサインイン後、Skype for Business Online サーバーより、クライアントに対して、 インバンドプロビジョニングと言われる方式でポリシーの内容がクライアントに対して強制されます。 Skype for Business Online で現時点でカスタマイズ可能なクライアントポリシーのパラメターにつきまして以下の通りとなります。 Set-CsClientPolicy や New-CsClientPolicy でカスタマイズ可能なパラメター パラメター名 カスタマイズ可否 PolicyEntry カスタマイズ不可 Description カスタマイズ不可 AddressBookAvailability カスタマイズ不可 AttendantSafeTransfer カスタマイズ不可 AutoDiscoveryRetryInterval カスタマイズ不可 BlockConversationFromFederatedContact カスタマイズ不可 CalendarStatePublicationInterval カスタマイズ不可…

Subscribing to onValidatingWrite

Most event handlers are straight forward. One exception is when subscribing to a table’s onValidated and onValidating events. The trick is to realize that the DataEventArgs instance passed to the event handler, is a validateEventArgs – a specialization of DataEventArgs. Here is a template to use: [DataEventHandler(tableStr(<TableName>), DataEventType::ValidatingWrite)]public static void <TableName>_onValidatingWrite(Common _sender, DataEventArgs _e){    boolean result = true;    ValidateEventArgs validateEventArgs = _e as ValidateEventArgs;    <TableName> <table> = _sender as <TableName>;     if (<validation>)    {        result = checkFailed(“Validation failed”);    }    validateEventArgs.parmValidateResult(result);}   The platform will keep raising the…

PowerShell Open Source Community Dashboard

Since going cross-platform and open source on GitHub, I’ve wanted to know how we are doing as a community and who the top contributors we should recognize are. The available GitHub graphs are not sufficient as they focus on commits, and there are many other ways for the community to contribute to PowerShell. Certainly receiving…
