Post MSIgnite 2018 – What I’m Watching

As I filtered through the 1700+ sessions leading up to Microsoft Ignite, I quickly knew that unless I was able to clone myself I would have some catching up to do.  Rather than try to sort through all of the sessions again later, I made a playlist of sessions that I’d like to go back and watch.

The playlist is a compilation of 70+ videos and 24+ hours of content, mostly in the Azure and Office 365 arena since that is where a lot of my focus is these days.  Is there a session that shouldn’t be missed?  Feel free to let me know what should be added!

What I’m hoping to see at Ignite 2018

Azure Sign-In Error Code 50140

While troubleshooting an issue recently, I noticed failures showing up in the Azure Sign-In Activity panel with a sign-in error code 50140.  The error code gave the following details:

Failure reason

This error occurred due to ‘Keep me signed in’ interrupt when the user was signing-in. Open a support ticket with Correlation ID, Request ID, and Error code to get more details.

This was happening for a variety of single-sign on enabled applications.  Upon testing, the user logged in and was prompted with KMSI as expected.  They experienced no trouble either when selecting Yes or No to the prompt.  After opening a case with Microsoft, and reaching out to someone on the inside, both confirmed that this was more of an anomaly in the logs and could be safely ignored.  It sounds like this will soon either be resolved or changed to an Informational message instead.

MSTeams Tip: Forms on the fly survey

Microsoft Teams continues to get new functionality and I saw a nice addition just the other day.  The ability to quickly create a survey in a channel conversation without leaving the app or even adding Forms as a new tab makes collaboration with your team more seamless.
