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. Azure auth populate request.user

    When using the azure auth over functions, specifically those that take a http trigger, it would be great if it would populate the request.user in a similar way you can do using node.js and passport (https://github.com/Azure-Samples/active-directory-b2c-javascript-nodejs-webapi/blob/master/index.js) rather than just providing some headers.

    This would make it much easier to work with authenticated users and interact with their information

  3. better error handling for EventGrid calls that you want to retry

    The Microsoft sample documentation (link below) suggests using a Run method with void return type. This doesn't allow convenient handling of errors that you want to handle by getting EventGrid to retry invoking the Azure Function again after a period. For example, my Azure Function sends a message to a server (Azure Container Instance) which may be down. In this situation I want EventGrid to invoke my Azure Function again after a period when the server might be up. However, with a void return type my only option seems to be that of throwing an exception (InvalidOperation?). Agreed, I could…

  4. Consumption plan for Linux-based function apps in Canadian regions

    Hi, are there any plans to open up consumption plans for Linux-based function apps in Canada Central or Canada East regions?

    Thanks.

  5. At-a-glance failure monitoring in UI

    Would be great to see the current health of all functions in a single view. Black for successful, Orange for functions with warnings and Red for functions with errors on last execution.

    Also, last x runs in a color-coded graph (same as last x builds in VSTS) would be brilliant so we can quickly visualise the health of our function apps.

  6. What is the timeline for supporting the new Azure SDKs?

    I really want to get rid of the connection strings in my functions and I want to be able to switch to the Azure.Identity SDK for auth. I understand that this will be a breaking change, however some communication about the plan would be nice.

  7. Support user assigned managed identities in keyvault references

    Keyvault references support system assigned managed identities. However in a lot of applications you might need to create your own managed identity since the system assigned ones get destroyed when the resource is deleted (upgrading to a new plan would be an example of when an azure function needs to be destroyed and recreated).

    Every time this happens you need to re-assign permissions, then wait for replication which takes time. Please consider supporting user assigned managed identities in keyvault references.

  8. 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.

  9. 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!

  11. disabled function

    A colleague of mine disabled one timer triggered function on the host.json file, for testing purposes, and then forgot to re-enable it.

    I spent over one hour until I realised it.

    There should be an indicator in the portal warning if a function is disabled.

  12. Add settings to change local logs verbosity/level

    When running functions locally, on every call to a function I am bombarded with logs, can we have an options on the cli, or in local.settings.json to change the logs verbosity/level (debug/info/warning/error...) so it will be easier to debug and work with functions?
