Azure Functions

I had a requirement to use azure functions, so I have managed to get it working with Radzen.
So I am passing on how easy it is to use them.
Images of the process are at the end as I can only have 1 image

  1. Create your function in the Azure portal
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-functions/functions-create-first-azure-function

  2. Add http://localhost:8000 to the Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) panel in the portal under Platform Features

  3. Get the Function key URL https://radzenfunction.azurewebsites.net/api/HttpTriggerCSharp1?code=dghdkdashksddkld=sdjkdjds-sjdkdjksdjskjsk

  4. Create a Radzen Application and add a REST Datasource to it
    Name the Datasource radzenfunction
    The REST point is the Parent path of the URL https://radzenfunction.azurewebsites.net/
    Authorization set to API Key
    Name set it to code
    Value is dghdkdashksddkld=sdjkdjds-sjdkdjksdjskjsk (after the code= in the URL)
    Press next

  5. Add schema
    In the text box just add Greeting
    Press Next

  6. Add resource
    In the textbox add api/HttpTriggerCSharp1 (middle of the URL)
    Press the plus sign
    Name : getGreeting
    Method select GET

    Add a parameter
    Name name The parameter that the function is expecting in the query string
    Type String
    In query

Responses
HTTP Status 200
Schema Select Greeting name from step 5
Press next.
7) Create a new page
Call it home with Start page and Include in navigation selected
8) Add a Textbox and Button to the Page
In the Events of the Button add new click event

Invoke data source method then select getGreeting for the name field
Add a parameter from the dropdown select name and The Value can be your name Fred Dragg

Add a “then” handler
Select Set property
Name getGreetingResult
Value ${result}
Press Done

In the Textbox add ${getGreetingResult} to the Value box

  1. Run the program when you press the button it should get back a result in the textbox “Hello Fred Dragg “

This is a simple example but there are a lot of features in azure that this opens up.
