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. Use token instead of session to call azure function from client app in browser on behalf authorized user

    Return an access token instead of the session after the user authenticated in azure functions.
    To allow functions call from any domain.

  2. vnet integration

    function app and web app cloning

    When cloning apps and adding it to a different ASP you need to add conditions or checks whether the app is vnet integrated and not allow the cloning. This breaks the destination ASPs network configuration and none of the existing apps be able to communicate or function properly.

  3. vnet integration

    Function apps VNET/Subnet integration.

    When a function app in ASP has been integrated, would be ideal to only show the subnet that was used by the first app. It only makes sense because you are only allowed to integrate any additional function app in the same ASP to the same subnet. it makes no sense to present the user all of the subnets in a vnet.

  4. Dynamic file names for Blob out bindings - Python

    I am currently workig with an HTTP trigger with some paramateres. Based on those parameters I do some calculations and save results into a file on blob storage account. Currently I am saving them in static file name defined on binding but I woul dlike to be able to generate dynamically the file name in the az func code.

    For example:

    {

      "type": "blob",
    
    "direction": "out",
    "name": "outputBlob",
    "path": "container/{calculatedFileName}.csv",
    "connection": "AzureWebJobsStorage"
    }

    where calculatedFileName is something we define in the code.

    Is that something feasible? I am using Python.

    Thanks in advanced.

  6. Functions to be stored not at root level

    It would be really nice if we was not forces to have a fold structure where our functions must be stored at root/functionName/index.js. As if the probject contains anything else put the src it gets out of hand.

    I am very suprised you cannot provide a path to where functions lie, ie i would love to have src/functions/<functionName>/handler

    this allows for all shared code to stay under /src/<shared>

  8. Show Function Execute Units in GB/s

    Customer would like to check their Function Execute Units in Azure portal.
    We do have this Metric but the unit is MB/s. However, our bililng unit is GB/s.
    Because customer needs to convert it by themselves, our customer feels it's not easy and convenience to check it at the first glance in Azure portal.
    Please help to add this feature to enable our customer to check their usage in GB/s in Azure portal.
    Thank you!

  9. Function Apps hosted on AKS

    My Function App is hosted on AKS and is working well. However, it doesn't appear on the Azure Portal.

    Is it possible to set this up somehow?
    Perhaps with an ARM template "Microsoft.Web/sites" resource?

  12. Update Azure Functions sandbox to include Visual FoxPro OLE DB provider

    Hi guys

    Trying a real blending of old Microsoft and new Microsoft and have encountered a a problem!

    I'm trying to read a Visual FoxPro DB from within an Azure Function, but unfortunately the Visual FoxPro OLE DB driver is not installed on function machines.

    The driver is available from Microsoft here - https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=14839.

    It should be as simple as to copy the vfpoledb.dll file into the D:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\System\Ole DB\ directory along with the other OLE DB drivers that are currently included. I have tried to do this myself through the Kudu console but don't have permissions…

  13. IAsyncEnumerable support in Azure Functions V3

    Hi!

    In order to return data in a stream and being more memory friendly it would be fantastic if the AF could support IAsyncEnumerable<T> return. Example:

        [FunctionName(&quot;Function1&quot;)]
    
    public static async IAsyncEnumerable&lt;int&gt; Run(
    [HttpTrigger(AuthorizationLevel.Anonymous, &quot;get&quot;, &quot;post&quot;, Route = null)] HttpRequest req,
    ILogger log)
    {
    log.LogInformation(&quot;C# HTTP trigger function processed a request.&quot;);

    for (var i = 0; i &lt; 10; i++)
    {
    yield return i;
    }
    }

    Thanks

  14. Add possibility to dynamically set queueName in @QueueTrigger for Spring.

    It would be great to set queueName parameter in @QueueTrigger annotation dynamically by value from e.g. application.properties in Spring Cloud Function project. In current solution queueName must by constant so it means that this is hardcoded. This is bad when we would like to have our Function App in different environments or we would like to have all necessary configuration for whole Spring project in one place to change this easily. Sometimes annotations have special parameter where you can put string in the same format as in @Value annotation e.g. "${key.from.application.properties}" like fixedDelayString in @Scheduled. It would be great to…

  16. Support health checks from Microsoft.Extensions.Diagnostics.HealthChecks

    Now that we can configure functions using FunctionsStartup, it would be cool to be able to add health checks too. By installing the Microsoft.Extensions.Diagnostics.HealthChecks package, I can get health checks code to compile:

    builder.Services.AddHealthChecks().AddCheck("test", x =>
    {

    return new HealthCheckResult(HealthStatus.Healthy);
    

    });

    But the health check is never executed, why I believe something needs to be done to support health checks in functions.

  17. Allow High Density scaling Azure Function in Container on a single Elastic Plan Instance

    I have an Azure Function in a linux container running on the Elastic Service Plan.

    Currently I can not scale the number of containers of the same azure function container within the same Elastic Service Plan.

    It would be great to have this as I need my Azure Function to run in isolation, but still want to be able to scale to multiple container instances.

    I have lots of room to spare in the Elastic Service Plan, but currently the only way to scale, is scaling to multiple elastic plan instances.

    In short I would like to be able to…

    You can do this today by setting the hubName to WEBSITE_SITE_NAME in host.json. It should work in both V1 and V2 of Durable Functions. (NOTE: it should be WEBSITE_SITE_NAME surrounded in percent signs, user voice may not be displaying the percent signs properly) – Anthony

  19. Durable Functions Workflow fixes support

    Workflows on Durable Functions is great until you make some bug in it. And when you do (not "if you do") make a bug, it may result in thousands or even millions of workflows in inappropriate state, or waiting for never-happen events, or just hang in some infinite loop - there are a lot of ways things can go wrong.
    And we need some way to recover the system from those mistakes. Cancellation is one option (AFAIK, it still doesn't support cancelling sub-orchestrators and activities, so not very useful anyway), but workflows sometimes may take days or months to get…
