Guy launched his first training website in 1995 and he's been helping people learn IT technologies ever since. He has been a sysadmin, instructor, sales engineer, IT manager, and entrepreneur. In his most recent venture, he founded and led a cloud-based training infrastructure company that provided virtual labs for some of the largest software vendors in the world. Guy’s passion is making complex technology easy to understand. His activities outside of work have included riding an elephant and skydiving (although not at the same time).

Congratulations on making it all the way through this learning path. If you’re preparing to write the AZ-203 exam, note that although we’ve covered all of the major topics in the exam guide, there are a few details that weren’t covered. I’ll list them for you and show you where you can learn more about them.

After you’ve created an API, you’ll want to make it as easy as possible for others to use it. Fortunately, you can automatically generate documentation for an API by using the Swagger specification (also known as OpenAPI). Here’s a link to a page that explains how to use Swagger with .NET Core.

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/aspnet/core/tutorials/web-api-help-pages-using-swagger?view=aspnetcore-2.2

To save you some typing, I put all of the links from this video in the transcript below.

Azure Functions is a great way to run stateless applications, but it can also be used to run stateful applications by using its Durable Functions extension.

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-functions/durable/durable-functions-overview

To give people restricted access to Azure Storage, you can use shared access signatures. But what if you issue lots of them and then need to change their permissions or expiry date? The easiest way is to create a stored access policy.

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/rest/api/storageservices/establishing-a-stored-access-policy

To create, read, update, and delete data in relational database tables using code, have a look at this page, which shows an example of how to do it with .NET Core.

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/aspnet/core/data/ef-rp/crud?view=aspnetcore-2.2

To implement authorization in Azure, you would normally use role-based access control, but there’s another, slightly different approach you can use called claims-based access control.

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/aspnet/core/security/authorization/claims?view=aspnetcore-2.2

To set up automatic notifications when your web application is not performing well or not responding at all, you can set up a web test and multiple alerts in Application Insights.

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-monitor/app/alerts

Azure Search is a really helpful service for adding search capabilities to an application. This link shows you how to create an Azure Search index.

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/search/search-what-is-an-index

And this one shows you how to import data into an index.

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/search/search-import-data-portal

I also recommend that you get more hands-on experience with Azure, which will help reinforce what you’ve learned.

Please give this course a rating, and if you have any questions or comments, please let us know.

Thanks and good luck on the exam!
