A powershell script for activating an eligible role assignment in Azure AD
Recently my role assignments in Azure AD were switched from permanent to eligible ones. This is part of PIM - Privileged Identity Management, you can read more about it on MS Docs: Start using Privileged Identity Management To activate your eligible assignment you can use Azure Portal, Graph API, and PowerShell. The activation in the portal and Graph API is described on MS Docs: Activate my Azure AD roles in PIM My roles within Privileged Identity Management in Azure Portal
Sites.Selected and Governance
The new permission in Graph API - Sites.Selected - is a step in the right direction. Since long we have been looking for ways of scoping the accesses to live up to the least privilege principle. It was either nothing or everything. I have tried out the new Sites.Selected permission and here are my findings. First of all, if you haven’t heard about Sites.Selected, please visit these pages to find out more.
Smarter way of loading SharePoint CSOM dll in PowerShell
Have you also got a legacy powershell script that loads SharePoint dlls and runs CSOM code directly? It’s quite easy to convert to PnP PowerShell. But if you run out of time and just need to execute the script, then I have a quick tip for you. First of all, a CSOM script can be recognized by Add-Type commands (or Import-Module) plus the SharePoint dll paths. Loading the dll the old way.
A cost effective way of running legacy scripts in the cloud
Have you also got some old huge scripts that run on a server locally? Have you also considered moving them to the cloud? Here comes an idea of how to do it quickly and easy. In my case I have some older powershell scripts that are harder to convert to serverless applications: They use MSOnline module in PowerShell, hence they require rewriting to AzureAD before using them in an Azure Function They take around 15 minutes to complete, Azure Functions Consumption Plan is limited to 10 minutes.
Monitoring Microsoft 365 using Raspberry Pi and M365 CLI

Git Merge develop to main in an Azure DevOps Release
This post is a techy one. It’s about running git commands in Azure DevOps Releases in order to finalize a deployment job to production. Let me first describe our scenario: We use Azure DevOps for code and for deployment. Our branch strategy a simplified Gitflow model, where all the current work is merged to the “develop” branch. The code from the “develop” branch is then built and released to staging environments and production.
1TB=1024GB in SPO Storage
You want to calculate your storage capacity in SharePoint Online? Here is how: Every 1TB is 1024GB (it might be confusing, see my previous post, but it’s how it is calculated) A tenant gets 1024GB by default For every user license of a product that includes the service plan called “SHAREPOINTSTANDARD”/SharePoint Online (Plan 1) you get 10 GB extra For every user license of a product that includes the service plan called “SHAREPOINTENTERPRISE”/SharePoint Online (Plan 2) you get 10 GB extra For every user license of a product that includes the service called “ONEDRIVEBASIC”/SharePoint Online OneDrive Basic you get 0.
Print2SPO - en enkel utskrift till SharePoint
Den här bloggposten är ett (en aning större) användar- (eller verksamhetsutvecklar-)tips om hur man kan sätta upp smarta utskrifter till SharePoint Online - utan några extraappar eller lösningar. Först och främst, stort tack till min kollega Shahram som har presenterat idén för mig. Tänk dig ett följande scenario: Du har en mall i Word som du fyller i, skriver ut på papper. Låt säga, det är en plockorder. Du vill digitalisera processen genom att skicka pdf:en till ett gemensamt dokumentbibliotek i SharePoint eller Teams.
1 TB = 1024 GB in SPO?
There is confusion around how the storage is calculated in SharePoint Online. I believe, in SharePoint Online 1 TB is 1024 GB (based on powers of two), although the SI Prefix is for numbers based on powers of 10 (1TB = 1000GB, Wikipedia). In this post I would like to summarize the results of my investigations and I hope Microsoft or the community can confirm or disconfirm this. First, let me explain why we care about it.
