How to: Get a Microsoft Graph Access Token when logging into Azure Active Directory with Azure App Service

If you have used Azure App Service, you will have loved how easy it is to set up authentication to providers such as Azure Active Directory and Facebook.  It lets you get started with a single line of code.  You can literally login with a single line of code like the following: client.login('aad').then(results => {     // successful login }, error => {     // login error }); This will give you an id_token that you can then turn into a access_token by calling the /.auth/me endpoint with a REST call.  However, that access_token won’t have access to anything even though you configure...

Complete Surface Pro 3 Review - 3 days later

While I have always been a die hard fan of my Surface 2 and Surface RT, when the Surface Pro 3 was announced I was pretty excited.  As someone that travels a lot, I question every item that goes into my bag.  I am done with carrying around an 8 pound Lenovo W520.  With the shift of SharePoint to the cloud with Office 365, I hardly ever need to run a local virtual machine any more.  I found I could get a lot done on the road with my Surface 2.  It has all the Office applications I need plus runs a variety of apps.  However, the once place I had issues is when I needed to use a pro...

An Easier Way to Enable Managed Metadata Site Columns

Whenever you use the Blank Site template for a site collection, a lot of supporting features that you may want are not activated.  One of these is the feature for Managed Metadata site columns.  When you pick one, you might see the following error. The required feature is not enabled for this column type. That’s nice, but why don’t you actually tell me the feature name that I need to activate?  I’ve seen a lot of posts on this, and they state to activate the required feature using PowerShell using the GUID of the feature.  Some even, dare I say it, recommend you use stsadm.  Tsk...
