Resolving Git error: RPC Failed

If you get the following Git error:

Git: RPC failed; curl 56 HTTP/2 stream 7 was reset

Running the following command in an elevated command prompt should do the trick:

git config --global http.version HTTP/1.1

Michael Heydasch gets credit for dealing with it first and figuring it out.”

Kyle Hardin added, “Or avoid the problem completely by using GitKraken.”

Debugging a CDX BC environment

Shirley F asked, “Has anyone ever debugged a CDX BC environment? And if so, can you share what your launch.json looked like?”

Pranav Joshi replied, “Yes you can debug in CDX environment like any other cloud environment; you need the correct tenant id and credentials. Here is the launch.json. You can replace the tenant with the tenant id of your CDX environment.

“name”: “Publish: Microsoft cloud sandbox”,

“type”: “al”,

“request”: “launch”,

“tenant”: “43xxx54-03xx-40xx-xxxx-xxxx2919xxxx”,

“environmentType”: “Sandbox”,


Shirley Fowler answered, “Thanks, Pranav. My environment was of type Production – that’s why I couldn’t debug. I created a Sandbox as a copy of Production, and now I can debug the Sandbox.”

OAuth2 from Power BI Desktop to BC on premises

Kyle Hardin asked, “Does anyone know if PowerBI Desktop can do OAuth 2 to BC OnPrem? What about if I use the Power Connector?”

Andy Alldredge replied, “Not sure if this answers your question, but Chris Webb addresses this issue in his blog, Connecting To REST APIs With OAuth2 Authentication In Power Query/Power BI.”

Yann Saint-Laurent added, “In the project I am working on, we are connecting to Microsoft Graph to get to OneDrive, SharePoint and Outlook data, not another BC instance. However, I’ve done some projects in the past where BC on Prem pulls and pushes data to a SaaS Environment if that helps.”
