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. Better support for SharedAccessSignature for inputs and outputs

    I have a Azure Function with an Azure Table as input, and I was trying to use a SharedAccessSignature in the connection string. I wanted to limit access to a specific table, and provide no access to other Azure storage services. However, when I try to run the function, there are errors saying that no Blob endpoint is configured, no Queue endpoint is configured, etc.

    I would like to have a connection string with only TableEndpoint and a SharedAccessSignature, and support signatures that limit access to a specific table or even a specific subset of a table (partition key range).…

  2. 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...

  3. Allow moving from AppServicePlan to Consumption plan (in Azure portal)

    It should be easy to move between hosting plans for Azure functions so we can change this based on the current needs. At the moment, I would like to move away from app service plan for a lot of functions (use consumption plan instead), but in the future, high continous demand might move some back to an app service plan. Changing between the to modes should be as easy as scaling out on an app service plan

    I have read somewhere that there is a problem if a function was created as an app service plan because of missing storage.…

  4. 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.

  5. Set environment variable override for AuthorizationLevel.Function key

    When running within the Azure Functions Runtime inside of a Docker container, we can't use AuthorizationLevel.Function as there is no way to retrieve the key from the runtime. It'd be great if we could directly set a function key in our compose.yml as an environment variable. For deployment, we just leave the environment variable blank and the App Service can set the keys.

  7. Support for queue settings per function

    As I was looking for a way to configure the visibility timeout for queue messages I found that the only configuration seemed to be at the host level. The problem is that my queues have different needs and one setting will not work optimally for all queues. I am looking for a way to configure each queue independently.

  8. Autocomplete and intellisense on a portal

    Hi,
    it's cool that we have source code editor, but without Autocomplete and intellisense it's really hard write and debug code directly on a porta.
    Few years ago was project Monaco on a classic azure porta. could you reuse it add autocomplete somehow else?!

  9. 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…

  10. Add "clientCertEnabled" support for local development of Azure Functions

    If I set the following flag on my azure-published azure-function "clientCertEnabled": true, my sample code below is able to use/consume the client certificate I send.

    I am unable to get local debugging to accept client-certificates.

    This makes unit-testing my azure function very difficult.

    using System.Net;
    using System.Net.Http;
    using System.Threading.Tasks;

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  14. False azure function status on azure portal

    There are 2 ways in which an azure function can be created, one from the portal itself and other through SDK for example .NET SDK using which you could create functions and deploy the function to azure from Visual Studio.

    Problem Scenario : When we deploy it from Visual Studio, the functions are deployed in a pre-compiled state and so we are not able to ENABLE or DISABLE the function from the portal itslef.

    Solution suggested by Azure Support : Have an application setting on the portal which will be set to true/false or 1/0 which will enable/disable the azure…

  15. console.log works as well as context.log in node.js

    In a function written in node.js, console.log should log to the error log/console just as context.log does.

    It would allow using the same debug in code that is been run both in standalone node.js and in function node.js. It is painful to have to alter the calls when moving code between the environments.

  16. 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.

  17. Azure Services/PaaS or E2E-scaffolding for Facebook GraphQL/Relay

    There is something beyond Azure App-Services and Functions; Facebook GraphQL as a service, end-to-end which should in clude a CQRS "back-end" (REDIS...) and API-Mgmt/Monitoring features. Here are some examples: https://www.graph.cool/features/ and https://scaphold.io/... but we leverage Azure, so we are currently developing with graphql in AppServices...

  18. Support for blob trigger on entire storage account

    Microsoft’s mobile services are designed to place blobs that are pushed in from mobile clients into many containers - a separate container for each entity that the files are associated with. Microsoft’s solution for sourcing events from blob operations is not compatible with this, as the existing blob trigger required you to know the name of the container at setup/binding time. It would be useful to have a blob trigger that can monitor an entire storage account.

    Changing this and clarifying. You can do this today with the Event Grid trigger (e.g. create an event grid trigger and then add subscriptions for each container in a storage account – or many storage accounts – and point to same function). That’s the way that works today and is planned to be the solution for this short term. However leaving this open as I think it was more general to have the Blob and not the Event Grid trigger do this. Keep the votes coming and comment on if Event Grid may not be enough.

  19. Quartz Timer Feature

    Please enhance Azure Functions or Azure in general that exposes an API against which we can post quartz like timer jobs.

    Would be great to set a timer in Azure that can eventually trigger an Azure Function when executing.

  20. Scala support for Azure Functions

    The Java worker for Functions allows Scala to be exectured in Functions relatively easily. It would be great to see Microsoft support Scala as they do Java with MSFT endorced build and deploy practices.

    See post here seeing how easy it is to deploy manually https://monteledwards.com/2018/10/07/deploying-scala-code-on-azure-functions/
