Advanced Serverless Architectures with Microsoft Azure

By: Daniel Bass

Overview of this book

Advanced Serverless Architectures with Microsoft Azure redefines your experience of designing serverless systems. It shows you how to tackle challenges of varying levels, not just the straightforward ones. You'll be learning how to deliver features quickly by building systems, which retain the scalability and benefits of serverless. You'll begin your journey by learning how to build a simple, completely serverless application. Then, you'll build a highly scalable solution using a queue, load messages onto the queue, and read them asynchronously. To boost your knowledge further, the book also features durable functions and ways to use them to solve errors in a complex system. You'll then learn about security by building a security solution from serverless components. Next, you’ll gain an understanding of observability and ways to leverage application insights to bring you performance benefits. As you approach the concluding chapters, you’ll explore chaos engineering and the benefits of resilience, by actively switching off a few of the functions within a complex system, submitting a request, and observing the resulting behavior. By the end of this book, you will have developed the skills you need to build and maintain increasingly complex systems that match evolving platform requirements.

Chapter 4: Security

Activity 4: Protecting an Ordering System

  1. Open the API management service and import the orders function app, as we did in Exercise 12, Protecting a Function with Azure API Management.

  2. Copy and paste the API Management Service endpoint address into the orders page fetch call:

  3. Modify the order.html page to retrieve the user and retrieve the email address and delivery address (refer to Exercise 13, Implementing User Sign-up and Sign-in Using Azure Active Directory B2C). Your file will look as follows:
