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. Allow running headless Chrome (or other browser) in Function apps or Web apps

    Basically it's this:
    https://cloud.google.com/blog/products/gcp/introducing-headless-chrome-support-in-cloud-functions-and-app-engine

    Now obviously Google has a bit of an advantage here what with Chrome being their own tech but there are so many blogs out there with people talking about complicated Docker solutions just to run headless Chrome in the cloud.

    It would be great if we could get a solution where we could run Puppeteer in much the same way, or allow web apps to run Chrome without having to be inside Docker and we could manage a pool of Chromes without having to manage Docker as well.

  3. Support firewall enabled storage account on Premium Plan (regression?)

    This issue is raised and closed as implemented https://feedback.azure.com/forums/355860-azure-functions/suggestions/38215135-support-for-firewall-enabled-storage-account

    But it doesn't work on Premium Plan. The functions runtime reports "Access denied" trying to access "D:\home\LogFiles\Application\Functions\Host"

    As explained at https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-functions/functions-networking-options#virtual-network-integration , "Mounting a drive" is not currently supported.

  4. Durable Functions - Prioritize activities queue

    On my project we tried using durable functions with queue-trigger to process resource-consuming requests at a steady pace instead of being overwhelmed with hundreds of messages arriving at the same time. Fairly basic scenario for queues isn't it?
    But after few weeks of conversations with Azure Support team we ended up with conclusion that it isn't possible to achieve and had to remake project to other technology.

    Need to say we had to configure maxConcurrentActivityFunctions setting to limit the load on our SQL DB, so "processing power", available for orchestrators got limited.

    This resulted in situation when hundreds of messages…
