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

Restore SimpleURL for Lync

Keen eyes might have noted the SimpleURLs were not restored using PowerShell to restore the Topology.

I have created a video, showing how you may restore the SimpleURL to the topology with a backup created with the Lync 2013 backup script v3.5

The video is about 1 minute 20 seconds long, and shows a restore of my lab in near real time. It has no sound, but the CC will explain what's going on.

The important giveaways from this movie should be:
  • Permissions required to run Lync command
  • When importing the CsConfiguration like this, you also restore the rest of the information created with the export-/import-CsConfiguration.
As always, you can find the script right here.
