Support for Azure Managed Service Identities in EventHub (and other) triggers
In Event Hub, I can add my Function App's MSI as a data reader, but in the function I cannot use trigger bindings to read from the queue without using a SecureAccess Key. We are trying to go password free wherever possible, and Azure has been promoting this course of action, so why do we need secret keys for reading from the queue? It then forces us to create and share a secret key for partner teams to read from our queue, rather than just permissioning them in Event Hub.
Great request, but we do not have a timeline for when we will deliver this. We definitely want to get here though.

This has been solved with the new Service Bus and Event Hubs clients. Read this post: https://blog.darkloop.com/post/using-service-app-managed-identity-with-azure-functions-service-bus-bindings
