I'm mostly a C# developer. Lastly, i had to programmatically modify an Azure Web application to add or remove firewall rules in a Web application and a SQL one.
To me, it was obvious to use:
- a C# Azure function
- azure C# sdk
It was easy for the SQL part.
but i was stuck for the Web application part, as the firewall rules was part of the inner configuration of the web application.
It was a surprise to me as the Powershell Core command was pretty simple to use.
So i was gladly surprised to see powershell function available, and the experience is simple.
I just need Az modules to complete my task. In order to check which modules are available, i just have to insert those lines in the function:
Get-Module -ListAvailable | Select-Object Name, Version | Sort-Object -Property Name
Az modules are here, so nothing to install.
For the authentication / authorization part, i rely on a Managed Service Identity, and on role based authorization control (RBAC) on the Web application.
In order to connect and i have the right identity i just have to:
Connect-AzAccount -Identity $az = Get-AzContext write-host $az
I just have to execute the command to add the access :
Hope this helps !
