When using the Microsoft-provided PowerShell scrips to assist with an upgrade from Portals v7 to v8, there are a few known issues that could still leave your data in an undesirable state. We’ve released an XrmToolBox plugin to help address a couple of those items.

One of the big things we’ve talked about during the transition from Adxstudio Portals v7 to the Portal Capabilities for Dynamics 365 v8 is losing the ability to include server-side code in your website project. There are ways around this limitation – typically we recommend using a Dynamics 365 Portals Companion App. However, there is another technique, which we’ve always considered a bit of a hack, but not only does it work, Microsoft is using the technique in their own Portals. So if they can do it, why not us?

We have an Adxstduio Portals v7 site that’s been causing us grief recently by getting stuck in an error state. The error state is easily resolved by clearing the cache, but this solution required manual intervention. Since the site is currently being upgraded to v8, we didn’t want to invest too much into finding the root cause – it was easier to just kill the cache when the site went down. But what was even easier was using Microsoft Flow and Uptime Robot to do the job for us.
