Azure Mobile Services 1.2.4

Microsoft

Store data in the cloud, authenticate users, and send push notifications.

Add structured storage, authentication, push notifications and more to your Xamarin based mobile application in minutes using Microsoft Azure Mobile Services.

To get started, follow the tutorial for the appropriate platform:

To learn about more Mobile Services, visit the Microsoft Azure Mobile Developer Center.

Release Notes

Known issues:

  • When running on iOS, if you encounter a "Windows Azure Mobile Services assembly for the current platform was not found" error, make sure you call Microsoft.WindowsAzure.MobileServices.CurrentPlatform.Init(); in your iOS application.

  • If you encounter a CryptographicException using this component in Xamarin.Android projects, note that this only occurs when 'break on all errors' or the equivalent in Xamarin Studio is turned on. The exception occurs within the mono HTTPS infrastructure and is automatically caught and handled and will not impact your application.

New to version 1.2.4:

  • Added support for following link headers returned from the .NET backend
  • Added a MobileServiceConflictException to detect duplicate inserts
  • Added support for datetimeoffsets in queries
  • Added support for sending provider specific query string parameters in LoginAsync()
  • Fixed an issue causing duplicate registrations in Xamarin.iOS against .NET backends

Thanks for the latest update. Definitely a great addition. But we're still desperate for Azure Blob Storage client SDK for Xamarin apps. Please forward that request to the relevant people.

There were some bumps for a while there, but this DOES now work nicely from a PCL. I've detailed the steps in a blog post here: http://blog.alectucker.com

This NEEDS to work in a PCL project, which it clearly doesn't - the whole point of Xamarin is to share code via PCL

One warning - if you tell the debugger to break on all errors, you'll see an exception in the HTTPS infrastructure. The exception is actually thrown, caught and handled by Mono under normal conditions.

Is there anyway to reference this component from a profile78 PCL project?

I used it in PCL project and, as declared in Known Issues, the component is not compatible with WP8.

Anyone knows a common way to organize a project that targets iOS, Android, WP8 and WindowsStore, build with Xamarin, where there is a Core project to share common logic? I mean that in this Core project I would like to put as much code as possible to manage Azure calls.

To everyone having problems, follow the walkthroughs from the mini-hacks that were part of Evolve on Github: https://github.com/xamarin/mini-hacks/tree/master/WindowsAzure

I was able to get the Login to work using the component. Looks promising, thanks!

InvokeApiAsync is not available, so accessing custom api scripts is not (currently) supported :\

Other than this, it's working properly.

LoginAsync does not work (null reference). If I use the sources from https://github.com/xamarin/azure-mobile-services it works fine. (iOS).

Data manipulation is fast and easy.
