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. Recompile loaded .csx files when they change, not just when run.csx changes...

    I'm working on a system where I have a number of functions which add data to a message queue, and one which dequeues the data and handles it.

    I've created an entity class that represents this, and put it in a folder at the same level as the function folders. So I have something like
    Function1

    run.csx
    

    Function2
    run.csx
    Entities
    QueueItem.csx

    I can then load the QueueItem by putting the following line in each run.csx:

    load "../Entities/QueueItem.csx"

    However, when I change QueueItem.csx, functions doesn't notice that the functions need recompilation, even though they do.

    I think this would be fixed…

  2. Support for custom URLs

    It seems like currently the HTTP endpoints for Azure Functions are limited to /api/*?code={code}.

    It would be great to be able to support a custom URL so that clean or existing APIs could be created on Azure Functions without needing to have a server to do the mapping.

  6. Install Visual C++ 2015 or 2017 redistributale

    We need to run c# code that uses c++ libraries like tesseract, these libraries require Visual C++ 2015 or 2017 Redistributable.
    At this moment it seems like only 2013 version is installed in azure functions

  7. At typescript compiler for Azure Functions

    When creating Azure Function in typescript I need to compile it before testing it or deploying code to Azure. Maybe Azure Functions could have typescript complier (tsc/babel) included. That would shorten dev time for typescript developers.

  8. Service Bus Topics names with hyphens are invalid (they should be valid)

  9. Recycle the app when synchronizing chages

    Continuous integration sync that includes .Net assemblies fails unless you manually stop the service before syncing because the assembly is locked. Sync should optionally stop the service, sync the files, and restart the service.

  10. Console w/ one-click from Functions main screen

    When I'm editing a function and want to run console commands, rather than me having to go into KUDU by hacking a URL and add "-scm" to it in new browser tab OR go into Function App Settings and then Advanced settings|Go to App Service Settings then clicking Console.
    Give me ability to click an icon to show a console so I can run commands.

    Scenarios for this show up in blog posts like https://freerangeeggs.net/2016/08/19/sending-application-insights-alerts-to-slack-using-azure-functions/

  11. PowerShell HTTP Trigger template - Out-File "typo" (nice to have)

    The template for HTTP trigger in PowerShell has a Out-file command

    Out-File -Encoding Ascii $Env:res -inputObject "Hello $name"

    it should be using the full parameter names to make it more understandable

    Out-File -FilePath $Env:res -Encoding Ascii -inputObject "Hello $name"

  12. Add a Function integration output option for Table Storage

    In the portal, add a Function integration output option for Table Storage. My requirement is posting low volume IoT sensor readings (~100/day/device) that can be read by Power BI. A database is overkill and too expensive.

  15. Don't show region warning during new app setup when not relevant

    When creating a new Function App I select a storage account which I know is in the same region as the new app. The portal still shows me the attached warning which causes me to doubt myself and go off and check the storage account before proceeding. If I select an existing storage account which is in the same region I'd expect this message not to be shown.

  17. HITRUST Certification for Azure Functions

  18. Ability to mark Application Settings as Slot Settings

    The Slot Settings checkbox is not there. So when swapping occurs, all the Application Settings get swapped. It would be great if we can mark some settings as slot settings, similar to the normal Web Apps settings page.
