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. Zip deploy Functions with app level credentials instead of user credentials

    Right now you if you want to use zip deploy you need to use user credentials, those can be used to deploy any function anywhere in your tenant. Not really the best way to handle DTAP. Would be nice if you could also the app level credentials which do work for the other deployment options.

  2. 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

  3. Add ability to restrict deployment from dev environments

    I recently created a new function app in our team's tenant to handle some custom monitoring. Now that I'm done prototyping it and have it in a workable state, I've created an Azure DevOps build and release to handle publishing the app.

    I need to do this, rather than simply use the CD from git branch option, because I'm using Typescript (currently unsupported), and need to install both node_modules and extensions for the app (because the app won't perform those steps itself based on package.json or extensions.csproj)

    While the pipeline now works, I can't find a way to lock down…

  4. certificate

    Can Azure Functions support SSL certificate for consumption plan?
    I found on https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-functions/scripts/functions-cli-configure-ssl-certificate that "To bind an SSL certificate, your function app must be created in an App Service plan and not in a consumption plan."

  5. 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.

  6. Proxies should support backend.request.body expressions in requestOverrides

    Would be great to be able to create or change the request BODY dutring request overrides processing like it is possible for headers and the method already. Expressions could override parts of the body, create a body when e.g. overriding a GET to a POST or update body parts / subparts. Even deletion of body or body parts would be usable...

  9. Add support for hybrid connections to Consumption Plan

    Can we add Hybrid Connections to functions running in Consumption Plans

    I'm aware of the idea ...
    https://feedback.azure.com/forums/355860-azure-functions/suggestions/14807298-should-support-hybrid-connections

    But this is for App Service Plans, and only mentions Consumption Plan in the response.

  10. Allow websockets ( SignalR ) feature in azure serverless using Functions

  11. Add support to Open Tracing/Zipkin

    Opentracing (http://opentracing.io/) is a popular standard for tracing correlated requests across many different services communicating via RPC. It contains implementations on several different platforms and various tools (zipkin being one of the most popular ones). The standard can be easily extended over HTTP using dedicated headers from client/server side. It would be great if Azure functions would be able to provide more or less transparent support for it.

    We are currently working on supporting a suite of Azure based distributed tracing solutions. We have no current plans to support this tool, but would love to hear from the community, and are leaving this item open to collect feedback :)

  12. Enable direct internal Function-to-Function calls

    There is a need to call one Function from another Function without an Internet round-trip, and without dependencies on additional services. (To me, "no Internet round-trip" implies the same region, but if "anywhere within Azure" optimizations could be made without a direct http call to go elsewhere, that would also be ideal.)

    Since the request linked below was closed as Completed even though the "resolution" refers to orchestration, a completely different concern, I'm opening this to re-request with the original intent.

    Related: https://feedback.azure.com/forums/355860-azure-functions/suggestions/15622413-enable-calling-of-other-functions-via-internal-id

  13. Wildcard within path of blob input bindings

    I wish we could specify blob storage input bindings path that included wildcard.

    --- function.json
    {
    "type": "blob",
    "name": "faces",
    "path": "face/profile-{date}-*.png",
    "connection": "AzureWebJobsDashboard",
    "direction": "in"
    }

    Then, I hope to process these as array of Blob objects.

    ---index.js

    module.exports = function (context, myQueueItem) {
    const fileSizeList = context.bindings.faces.map(face => face.size);
    context.log(fileSizeList);
    context.done();
    };

  14. Add ability to register Service Bus plugins

    Azure Service Bus .NET Standard client supports plugins registration for incoming and outgoing pipeline customizations. Already existing plugings are:
    - Message ID (to follow message ID conventions or for de-duplication)
    - Attachments (claim check)

    Service Bus customers can implement and plug their own plugins to satisfy encryption requierments and other aspects internal to their business. By allowing plugins registration via trigger configuration API, the code normally distributed with the functions would be reduced to a package reference. This will allow Functions authors focus on the logic and not the miscelanious aspects.

  15. Support Service Bus trigger with use of SAS token

    In our company we are using Service Bus with a framework that deals out the SAS tokens to queues. These tokens are living for few days only and concern hierarchical queues (eg. queue name could be productA/event-type-B/subtypeC) and only Listen policy.
    This would mean that listening on a different level then root level of namespace would be needed.
    Best if also the whole connection to SB described by this token would be separate object from the Function, so we could modify it (by altering with new SAS token/whole connection string) without modifying the Function code (as API Connections in Logic…

  18. Renaming functions using the web UI

    Renaming an Azure function doesn’t seem to be easily possible using the web interface. It would be helpful if the user could:
    - right-click the function name and choose a rename option in a context menu
    - use the “Manage” submenu (which already allows to delete a function)

  20. Add an empty / drain trigger to Azure Storage Queues

    Currently there seems to be no easy way to run code as soon as a Storage Queue has been emptied. It would be great to have an empty or drain trigger to call a different Azure Function for some pre-processing of batch jobs.
