In this production release (March 12), Canvas includes changes to several feature areas designed to improve user accessibility.
Instructors can differentiate assignments by groups and improve their course workflows with changes to the To Do list, Thin Common Cartridge imports, and Quiz previews.
Apart of the traditional partitioning, Azure offers another option for horizontal partitioning: Elastic Database. The quick answer is ‘yes’ (at this moment it is in preview): But, as with most things related to SQL Server, it depends.
In this special case, it depends on your service tier.
Once this part of the process is done, all the connections will be redirected to the “new” database, and the active connections will be disabled.
The process of changing the ‘Service Tier’ is simple, just follow the steps: The point-in-time restore is available on all the three editions – Basic, Standard and Premium. This database can be used to recover data to the original database or to fully replace the original database, which can be performed by renaming the restored database, using the ALTER DATABASE command: Once the database is restored, you can access it and copy the data from the recovered database to the live one. Thanks to the automatic backup process, available on all the tiers, you will be able to still recover the latest backup of your database.
For all those questions that you're too shy to ask, Murilo gives a reassuring answer.
One of the great advantages of a cloud services such as DQL Database is its capacity to easily scale up and down.It is better to set the rules as needed at the database-level, but there are cases where it is easier, or necessary, to define the rules at the server-level.There’s (still) no way to do this using the Azure portal, so you will need to connect to the database using SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS), with an user login that has the “CONTROL” permission and from a computer that is allowed to access the SQL Server logical instance.New features may differ from those available in your beta environment. Account, course, and user analytics can be viewed in graph or table view.This change improves accessibility and allows keyboard users to access additional data that could previously only be viewed by hovering over the graphs. To view data in tables, toggle the analytics view at the top of the page.
