Debugging C# Azure Functions on a local staged environment using Visual Studio 2017

Once the basic setup of creating the function is complete, the next step is to start working on developing the application as per your needs. Developing code on a daily basis is not at all a cake walk; developers will end up facing technical issues. They need tools to help them identify the root cause of the problem and fix it to make sure they are delivering the solution. These tools include debugging tools that help developers step into each line of the code and view the values of the variable and objects and get a detailed view of the exceptions.

In this recipe, you will learn how to configure and debug an Azure Function in a local development environment within Visual Studio.
