In the previous chapter, we learned how to create Azure Functions with Visual Studio and Visual Studio Code, how to publish a function on Azure, and how to call an Azure function from a Dynamics 365 Business Central extension.
We also learned how to use Azure Functions to implement serverless processes on Azure and execute .NET code in the cloud by looking at a real-life example of how to handle files in a SaaS environment. These topics are extremely important to understand so that you can execute custom code in a cloud environment and interact with external services in a serverless way.
In this chapter, we'll explore other important aspects related to Azure Functions, including the following:
- Monitoring a function published in the Azure cloud
- Scaling an Azure function
- Applying DevOps and CI/CD to Azure Functions
