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.

  2. integration with App Config

    It would be nice if Function apps would work with Azure App Config. Currently all the connection strings have to be hard-coded into the app or setup as local environment values (in local.settings.json or project's Environment settings) .

    We have been trying to move ALL of our sensitive configuration (connection strings, ect) to Azure App Config and Azure Key Vault. Our Function Apps are sticking out like a sore thumb in this regard, and we are considering converting all our Function Apps to something else because of this.

  3. Can you add Scopes to Google Authentication in Function App

    For some reason Scopes aren't included in the Google Authentication / Authorization portion of the Function App and when I try to authenticate using Google it fails and I get the error message that Scopes are required. They are available for Facebook and Microsoft and authentication works fine.

  4. Azure Functions should be highly available

    When updating an Azure Function your service become unavailable. During a recent deployment we saw a series of error code such as 503, 404, 502, and 401 (in that order). This is unnecessary and violates the widely recognized high availability attribute of serverless services. I recognize that one is able to use a slot and then swap it into the target slot but this should be the default behavior of every slot, including (or especially) the default slot.

    Not providing a high availability guarantee by default causes faults unnecessarily and requires every one of your customers to solve/mitigate the circumstance…

  5. Azure Functions should synchronize triggers with every update

    Currently you can update the package/zip/contents of an Azure Function and it will not automatically scan for updates to the trigger definitions. To get any alterations to triggers to be recognized by the Azure Function infrastructure you must either restart the AppService or run an explicit trigger synchronization using a command such as follows:


    az resource invoke-action --resource-group ${resource_group_name} --action syncfunctiontriggers --name ${function_app_name} --resource-type Microsoft.Web/sites

    This circumstance breaks down to:
    "You have to declare your triggers in the format we tell you to declare them in AND You have to tell us to actually load and use that declaration"

    Even…

  8. You can improve by making things by minimizing the functions

    It wold be better if the functions weren't so many and minimized to maybe two functions that consisted of different meanings

  9. Enable use of the Secret Manager in development mode

    In a Javascript Azure function, developper settings are stored in local.settings.json. It must be possible to use the Secret Manager (like in an ASP.Net Core app)

  10. Please list all the SKUs for ARM templates in an easy to find place

    We are developing ARM templates for deployment. I need to know which skus to use and what they mean. I can't find this in the App Service Plan page. I did a search and did not find a listing of skus.

  11. Function App VNET/SNET Integration, join a SNET that already has bindings

  13. Azure Functions App Time Trigger Consumption Plan Skipping and Missing executions

    Occasionally Function App Time Trigger type doesn't get executed at a scheduled time due to Instance Node change.
    My Function is set to execute every 20 seconds and occasionally it experiences few seconds delays or doesn't start at all.
    Azure Support has done backend log checks and attributed this behavior to Instance Node change.
    This affects both classic and durable functions.
    Can you please improve this behavior so this problem doesn't occur.
    Our function is too light for even the most basic dedicated service app plan. We want to keep this function costs down and hence would like to continue…

  14. Built-in scheduled reboots for Function Apps

    I would like to be able to schedule a reboot for my function apps. Ive noticed that after a few weeks of running some of my functions fail to launch. a reboot always fixes it. Scheduling a weekly/daily reboot natively in the portal would be the best solution

  15. Add "Staleness" Metric for EventHub Triggered Functions

    TL;DR: Add both offset and time based "staleness" metric for EventHub to Function triggers

    If one is depending on the well ordered guarantee of EventHub, one must crash the process if a temporary error occurs in order to avoid the offset being moved forward (there should be a better mechanism - the retry policy seems to solve for this part of the problem). Crashing the process causes a new function to be run from the same offset repeatedly until the temporary error is resolved. Regardless of how the offset is made to not proceed, this temporarily avoids data loss. However,…

  16. custom domain autosuggested in get url

    When you have a custom domain for an azure function, it would be cool and convenient for that custom domain to show up as an option when you press the Get Function Url button. Currently you can get a URL with a custom code (if you created one) if it gave an option that combined those too would be fantabulous.

    Here is example

    Default:

    https://functionapp.azurewebsites.net/funcname?code=1234

    Custom Domain:

    https://functionapp.domain.net/funcname?code=1234

    Custom Domain + Custom Code

    https://functionapp.domain.net/funcname?code=myCustomCode

    If the last two options would be autogenerated and autosuggested in the portal for the Get Function Url Button. Would be cool

  17. 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.

  18. Support for private end point enabled sql seever.

    It looks like the premium plan also don't support private end point enabled SQL server with Azure function. It should be enabled to use any PaaS resource under firewall and private enabled endpoint

  19. 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.

  20. Templates for dps and iot hub device management using service principal based rest or sdk will speed up iot development and azure adoption

    Templates for DPS and IoT hub device management using service principal based rest or SDK will speed up IoT development and azure adoption for customers who would like to go for custom development with a cheaper cost.

    In the long run, customers will use more services as part of their architecture where azure get benefited
    Customers get benefited with cheaper running and development cost
