Free Microsoft Flow + Twitter + SQL Server

Those days I was playing around with Microsoft Flow and have created some automation for a few things.

While playing with it the thing that I liked was the possibility to host workflows in a free account. So, if you have a live account you can pretty much use a ton of connectors and create your own workflows. You should check it out the plan offers in this link below and understand how you can use it.

SQLSat679_Speaking_600x300_02

Hello everyone!

I just wanted to share that I will be presenting a Lightining Talk at SQL Saturday 679 in Vienna, Austria. I will have 10 minutes to present the following session.

Title: My 5 favorite Powershell Commands!

So, if you are planning to be in Vienna for the SQL Saturday, make sure to register yourself, as there are only a few spots available. Also, if you are a DBA, I would say that you really should be attending my Lightining Talk, because the commands that I am gonna show you will save your life.. or at least make it easier.

Also, look at the Event Agenda, as there will be many other sessions in all areas of the Data Platform world.

Looking at dbatools github with Power BI

First of all! Really, really thanks dbatools team for this. I don’t have words to describe the impact that you guys have in my job. I use it every single day!

Now… back to the subject..

Those days I was preparing myself for a presentation and started to play around with Online Services Content Packs and decided to use the GitHub App Connector that is available.

In the left bottom of the Power BI area you have the Get Data option.

Once the page is opened you should choose Services and click on GET.

Creating Custom SSRS Security Roles

When you have a consolidated environment, usually you don’t want to set very broad permissions to users, most of the times you only want them to see what is really necessary.

Doing that in the Database Engine is quite easy, but what about Reporting Services? We know that SSRS exposes the following default roles: Browser, Content Manager, My Reports, Publisher and Report Builder. However, for me sometimes those roles offer too much to the user.

What people usually don’t know is that you can connect to your SSRS Instance using SQL Server Management Studio and then create customized roles. So, let me show you how to do it. Read the rest of this entry

Novos vídeos no canal do Youtube

Olá pessoal,

A algum tempo atrás estava gravando um curso sobre criação de baselines com SQL Server, Integration Services e Reporting Services. Acontece que com a minha mudança de rotina, de trabalho e de uma série de outros fatores a gravação do curso acabou ficando em segundo plano.

Depois de pensar mais sobre isso, decidi que não iria mais continuar a gravação dos vídeos e então resolvi liberar em meu canal do youtube os primeiros que eu tinha gravado. São cerca de 4 a 5 vídeos curtos, mas que passam alguma dicas bem legais. Read the rest of this entry
