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.

  1. More Python examples

    Still not clear on how to use some of the methods. Could we have more examples or scenarios?

  2. Increase VM SKU options for premium plan

    As durable functions for python become GA this year, it would make sense to increase the limit for number of cores available to be used for a function app. For ETL jobs that can be parallelized, it would be very beneficial. Is there a plan to offer more SKUs?

  4. Processing Python Dataframes - how to write out to Blob Storage?

    I am trying to build a file processing function - ingests excel files, performs some column transformations using python data frames. subsequently I want to write the file to a Storage Container. So far I haven't been able to read from the docs on how to convert the python DataFrame into a Stream that is writable? How can we achieve that?

  7. azure cli from azure functions

    I would like to run az cli from azure fuction.

    it will help me to manage my Azure environment.

  8. Allow Azure Function triggers to be enabled/disabled at runtime

    This feature would allow developers to decide when a triggered function (Service Bus, Event Grid, Storage queue, ...) should be disabled or re-enabled.

    Consider the following scenario where you develop a function that's being trigged by new messages on a Service Bus Queue. Whenever your function gets triggered you call a downstream API. This downstream API could have throttling limits or might have issues. To get around this you think about implementing the Circuit Breaker pattern. Whenever the circuit opens, you would stop calling the downstream API.

    Today the only way to stop processing messages it to completely stop the…

    There is no option to set the sessionId in Service Bus output bindings for node.js environment.
    I suggest to add that

  11. Add a "Run" button to the portal

    There are 2 documented ways to "manually" run a funciton.

    HTTP triggered: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-functions/functions-create-first-azure-function#test-the-function

    Non-HTTP triggered: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-functions/functions-manually-run-non-http

    Both approaches are quite clunky. Since running a function manually is obviously possible and documented, it seem like a glaring omission that a simple "Run" button isn't provided in the portal.

  12. Azure Function functionTimeout needs to be configurable per-environment via app settings, not only through host.json

    I need to configure my functionTimeout on an Azure Function per-environment. I have dev deployments that should just use a default timeout, and production deployments that can handle a long timeout (dedicated app service).

  14. Client cert authentication support in Azure functions

    the ability to support mutual authentication with client certs. Today the only way to do this is built it into your functions
    https://stackoverflow.com/questions/49686316/azure-functions-configure-client-certificate-authentication
    it would be great to have this as a feature of the platform.

    you could compare this lack of functionality to the something like Kubernetes ingress controller that easily allows you to do mutual auth https://github.com/kubernetes/ingress-nginx/tree/master/docs/examples/auth/client-certs

  16. Allow configuration of Storage Account for Function with Event Hub input binding

    Currently, an Azure Function gets one Storage Account, which is configured via the AzureWebJobsStorage property.

    This Storage Account is then used for any meta-data that the Function may need to store to work as expected.

    In the case of an Event Hub input bound Function, a blob container is created, which tracks the checkpoint of every partition in the Event Hub.

    Due to the Storage Account requirements for a Function, it is not possible to take advantage of Premium Storage for the Event Hub checkpointing process.

    While it makes sense to require a Storage Account that can support multiple types…

    It would be great to get an a sense for some of the specific features you need from the storage configuration, but this seems like a perfectly reasonable request. There has been some recent exploration of the AzureWebJobsStorage usage, so we’ll look to see how that all lines up with this.

  17. Allow regex or port ranges in CORS rules

    Not sure if this is Azure Functions specific, but it would be great to be able to specify a regex statement or a range of ports for a CORS rule for my function app.

    My specific use case is I am working on a Twitch.tv extension, and the "developer rig" they provide for hosting the frontend files when developing locally uses a new random port number every time the files are reloaded, and I can't change that behavior. I would love to be able to specify a CORS rule like " http://localhost:[50000-60000] " but it seems this isn't allowed. I…

  18. Visual Studio always uses name of req in the function.json file

    Visual Studio always puts name : req in the function.json file. There appears to be no way to set this from code, and when publishing, it overwrites any manual changes you may have made. This name needs to be the different when using an additional parameter to your function method, like an auth token from Azure AD.

  19. Allow non-public constructor for Function DI

    A (non-static) Function's constructor that is used for dependency injection must currently be public.

    Sometimes a Function has dependencies that (even as interfaces) are internal to its own project. As parameters of a public constructor, they are forced to become public, even though that is not the correct visibility modifier for them.

    Non-public constructors (particularly internal ones) are the natural solution to this.

    support http input binding
    I found that input binding for HTTP did not exist.

    In my case, I needed to have a function request data via HTTP, and then write to Azure Table. (timer trigger)
