Azure Functions

Azure Functions is an event driven, compute-on-demand experience that extends the existing Azure application platform with capabilities to implement code triggered by events occurring in other Azure services, SaaS products, and on-premises systems. With Azure Functions, your applications scale based on demand and you pay only for the resources you consume. Azure Functions provides an intuitive, browser-based user interface allowing you to create scheduled or triggered pieces of code implemented in a variety of programming languages.

How can we improve Microsoft Azure Functions?

  1. Enable triggering of Azure functions based on an event in RabbitMQ

    Hello, we are having a scenario where we should be able to trigger a function when a message is added to RabbitMQ. This would be really helpful in using Azure functions to integrate with other Message queuing platforms that support AMQP protocol.

    • Manage Function Proxies using the Azure REST API

      Similar to how functions work, it would be useful if we can programmatically manage Proxies within Functions using the Azure REST API.

      • Keep supporting Powershell in Azure Functions!

        I went to set up Azure functions for a new client and had to delete and re-create my application so I could downgrade to runtime 1.0 in order to use a powershell function. Even AWS has realized the proliferation of Powershell and now allows it to be used in Lambda functions. I have probably thousands of administrative scripts in my archives that could easily be ported to Azure functions. I'd move to AWS before I'd invest the time to re-write them all.

            • Fine grained function billing please

              Please add a more fine grained billing please.

              A minimum execution of 100 ms and 128 MB is to coarse. A lot of my functions execute within 10ms or less and use less than 128 MB of RAM.

              Please add more fine grained executions possible (10ms or even per ms) and in smaller memory steps, maybe 16 or 32 MB.

              Also make async execution time not count toward function execution time, because if is often not in our control (waiting for an slow external service, database or slow response writing because the caller of the Azure Function has a very…

              • On Premises Function App - Method to deploy from Visual Studio

                It dosen't appear that there is any method to deploy Functions to the on-premises "Azure Functions Runtime" - it seems you need to create the Function in the web-based IDE.

                Can we expect some method to deploy Functions from a local development environment to an On Premises server running Azure Functions Runtime?

                • API Management + Azure Functions: Custom Authorizers

                  Hi, guys are you fine?

                  I'm thinking to create an interceptor function but I didn't find this feature at azure functions/API Management.

                  at the AWS they have a native implementation called Custom Authorizers: "Custom Authorizers allow you to run an AWS Lambda Function before your targeted AWS Lambda Function. This is useful for Microservice Architectures or when you simply want to do some Authorization before running your business logic."

                  Do you know if is that possible in the future?

                  • Fix the first public-facing Visual Studio Durable Functions example so that it works.

                    When a newbie to Functions wants to learn more about Durable Functions by getting hands-on with VS, it would be nice if the first public-facing example one is likely to encounter at the following link...

                    • Code-To-Function - Specify git location for the function code.

                      Code-To-Function is idea similar to the Code-To-Container when where Azure function has only pointer to the function code git location.

                      Additional features could -"well known branches" where master is associated with prod and trunk with pre-prod deployment slots.

                      The failure of the exxecutin would configurably create an issue in the Git

                              • Add C++ support for Azure Functions

                                Allow C++ binaries to contains Azure Functions. It could be done by invoking the main in an executable, or a DLL with a specific export method with predefined signature.

                                C++ allows to control memory usage and allow users to be incredibly fast when used properly. In an environment where scaling is needed, squeezing a few seconds of CPU or lowering a few KB of RAM can translate to hundreds or thousands of dollars in savings.

                                If memory leaks are a concern, putting aside the fact that C# code can also leak, you could create fail safes for Azure Functions. A…

                                • Trigger Azure Function From Azure File Storage

                                  I'm having the need to use an Azure file storage trigger binding but I have seen that they have not fully supported yet [ref](https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-functions/functions-triggers-bindings).

                                  I would like to know if it will be possible in the near future to implement file storage triggers.

                                  Is there a schedule in the roadmap?

                                    Currently Azure Function Apps cannot be hosted on a Consumption Plan if the target Cloud is China.

                                    We would like to have the capability to use the Consumption Plan also on this Azure Region.

                                    • Offer ability to train a Neural Network Model using Azure Functions with GPU

                                      Offer ability to train a Neural Network Model using Azure Functions with GPU. this will be very useful, especially if you want to train Models using different parameters or hyper-parameter optimization.

                                      • Add Functions 'Experimental Language Support' button back to the portal to create python, etc functions

                                        Please put the 'Experimental Language Support' button back on the portal when creating new functions. Having to use the cli to create the experimental language functions (python, php, etc) is much slower than simply clicking a button and using the portal editor.

                                        Thank you!

                                        • Azure Function - Event Grid Output Binding

                                          Presently there is only an Azure Service Bus output binding for Azure Functions, there is nothing to pass the output on to another Event Grid Endpoint.

                                          This would be very useful.

                                          Kind Regards

                                          Paul
