How to Handle Error and Conflicts in Microsoft Fabric

Error and Conflicts in Microsoft Fabric : Microsoft Fabric is a cloud-based platform that enables you to create, share, and consume business intelligence (BI) content. It offers a variety of tools and features to help you analyze data, create reports and dashboards, and collaborate with others. One of the most powerful features of Microsoft Fabric is Fabric lifecycle management, a tool that allows you to integrate your development processes, tools, and best practices straight into the Fabric platform.

Fabric lifecycle management enables you to connect your Fabric workspaces to Git repositories, where you can store, version, and manage your BI content as code. You can also use deployment pipelines to manage the lifecycle of your BI content in a production environment. However, sometimes you may encounter errors or conflicts when using these tools, which can prevent you from working on or deploying your content. In this blog post, I will show you how to handle error and conflicts in Microsoft Fabric.
