Copilot for PowerBI

Copilot for PowerBI is now coming out in preview, and the feature will be enabled for all tenants. The feature can enhance data interaction and report creation using generative AI. If the organization is not ready for this roll-out, there are ways to restrict this feature based on security groups. There are controls to include or exclude groups.  One concern organizations have is the possibility of data being processed in a datacenter in a different region than their tenant. This can also be controlled by not allowing the usage of datacenters outside your region. Sign into the admin portal for PowerBI and check the settings associated with Copilot

Missing Meet URL in Global Topology in Lync Hosting Pack v2

For some reason, our provisioning service does not always publish the meet url in the global topology. Strictly speaking this entry is not used to populate the users meetURL, but it is needed whenever you need to deploy changes to the topology.

Missing Meet URL's in the global topology will cause an error message in Topology Builder, and prevent you from deploying anything.

In a huge deployment, finding the missing domain/meet-url mapping can take some time. That's where this short example script comes in play.

Powershell to the rescue, once again :)
$domain = Get-CsSipDomain | select identity
foreach ($d in $domain){
$TenantName = $d.identity.tostring()
$TenOrgID = (Get-CsTenant | where name -eq "$TenantName").tenantID
$TenantSIPDomain = $TenantName
$BaseMeetingURL = ""
$NewMeetingURL =  $BaseMeetingURL + $TenantSIPDomain
$URLEntry = New-CsSimpleUrlEntry -Url $NewMeetingURL
Write-Host "$URLEntry" -ForegroundColor darkgreen
$SimpleURL = New-CsSimpleUrl -Component "meet" -Domain $TenantSIPDomain -SimpleUrl $URLEntry -ActiveUrl $NewMeetingURL
Write-Host "$SimpleURL" -ForegroundColor yellow
Set-CsSimpleUrlConfiguration –identity global -SimpleUrl @{add=$SimpleURL} -Verbose -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue|Out-Null
Be aware you might have adjust the script to match your environment. And I should probably mention we've chosen to name our tenants the same as their sip addresses ;)
