How to convert your legacy Yammer Groups into Group connected Yammer Groups

Office 365 Groups bring a lot of advantages to a connected workspace within Office 365. For me they are like the glue between all different Office 365 Services. If you provision an Office 365 Group you get an Outlook Mailbox, a SharePoint TeamSite, Planner and much more. When you create a Microsoft Team, you create an Office 365 Group.
Yammer has the option to be Office 365 Groups connected as well. This article decribes how you can trigger the process on your terms.

Secure a web on Azure with an Azure Active Directory Multi-Tenant App

Azure offers a great platform for multiple types of apps and services, Web Apps are one of the PaaS service, we are using much. In some scenarios, it makes sense to host a static website on Azure, but to restrict access just for authenticated users. Well, AAD can help you with that by demanding a successful login with an Office 365 account. See how this works here.

Detect sentiment with Text Analytics

Azure Cognitive Services offer a bunch of services. One is the Sentiment Analysis API that allows to analyze unstructured text for tasks such as sentiment analysis based on Microsoft machine learning algorithms. See the first steps how to use that here.The test works in the same way with Postman as in the previous article.The goal here is to analyze some text to get a positive or negative result of the meaning.So, we just need some Azure logic and a tool to send and get the data. How to detect sentiment with Text Analytics informs about the service we want to consume. Again, we need to create a new Cognitive Service and to get our own access data from the Azure Portal. Once created, we get that data in the service overview and in the keys menu.Then, calling the Computer Vision API is easy: We need a HTTP POST request against the API and modify just the region and the subscription key.https://<region>.api.cognitive.microsoft.com/analytics/v2.0/sentiment?subscription-key=<subscription-key>So, my sample starts with https://westeurope.api.cognitive.microsoft.com/analytics/v2.0/sentiment...In Postman, we just create a new POST request with that URL and some parameters as here:As Headers we add a key "Content-Type" with value "application/json" and the body text that shall be uploaded with that post.As defined, the data we want to submit can be formatted JSON type, as here. First, there's a positive, then there's a negative text, in english language.{         "documents": [             {                 "language": "en",                 "id": "1",                 "text": "We love this trail and make the trip every year. The views are breathtaking and well worth the hike!"             },             {                 "language": "en",                 "id": "2",                 "text": "Poorly marked trails! I thought we were goners. Worst hike ever."             }         ] }See Language and region support for the Text Analytics API for more info.When clicking on the "Send" button, the request should be sent to the API. After some seconds of analyzing, the result will be shown as body, similar as here. Here's the output in JSON format.{     "documents": [         {             "id": "1",             "score": 0.92014169692993164         },         {             "id": "2",             "score": 0.05087512731552124         }     ],     "errors": [] } The return data says, that the first text with id 1 is positive (92%), the second text with id 2 is very negative (5%). A neutral value would be 0.5 (50%). Happy analyzing your text with the Sentiment Analysis API!

First steps with the Microsoft Vision API

Cloud services help to automate simple and complex processes. For analyzing a picture, the Microsoft Cognitive Services offer a bunch of services like the Vision API, (Custom) Computer Vision, Face API, Video Indexer an more. Follow this first sample with Postman to start with the Vision API.
