Azure Functions - Creating a new function

📮 Contact 🇧🇷 🇺🇸 🇫🇷


Creating a Function App

Once you're connected on Azure Portal, you can create a new Function App.

I recommend to user Consumption plan for your new function because it's included on Microsoft's limited free services.

Using Visual Studio Code

Installing extensions on Visual Studio Code

It's recommended to install Azure Tools on your VS Code that will connect with your Azure account to make easy to interact with Azure Cloud Services

You could install Azure Functions Core Tools

Creating a local function

So you can click on create a new function and choose some information for your new function.

For our test we've choosen the following values:

  • Language C#
  • .NET runtime .NET 6
  • Template HTTP trigger
  • Name you can choose the name that you want
  • Namespace you can choose the namespace that you want
  • Aythorization level Anonymous
  • How do you like to open your project Add to workspace

Using Visual Studio

Creating a local function

Click on File > New > Project

And search for Azure Functions

Fill out all required information for your new function. For our example we'll use HTTP trigger and Anonymous authorization.

You can find more information about function triggers here and information about Authorization here.

Running the function

Now you are able to run your new function. You can hit F5 for that and you'll see some message like that
