Deploy Logic App via Portal

Another quick gotcha. If you want to migrate a Logic App from Development to Accept and you don’t want to use Powershell/ARM or Visual Studio Team Services (DevOps), you can perform the following steps in the Azure Portal: Clone the Dev version of your Logic App and name it Acc_LogicApp (follow the correct naming convention).…

Logic App parameters in SQL

In a previous post, I explained how you can use Logic App parameters in ARM templates. This solution is quite complicated. You will have to parameterize your Logic Apps. At deployment, the parameters are substituted by actual values. But, If you lookup the logic app in the Azure Portal, you will notice that the value…

Deploy API Connection using ARM

Azure API Connections have a name and a display name. When you create a new API Connection via the Azure Portal, you are not able to specify the name of the API Connection. This name is actually used in Logic Apps however. Example: @parameters(‘$connections’)[‘sftp_1’][‘connectionId’] In this case sftp_1 is the name, not the display name.…

Extract ZIP file on FTP

The Azure FTP Connector currently has a limit on file size of 50MB. That’s pretty tiny for a file transfer application. It may even mean that you are unable to use this connector. There’s a solution however. In my situation I had a file of 134MB. I send this file in zipped format to the…

Remote debugging Azure Functions

In a previous post we talked about debugging an Azure function in Visual Studio. You can also debug a function deployed to Azure, ie. remote debugging. There’s a few points to note: For remote debugging to work, we will have to deploy the function container in Debug mode. Next open the Azure Portal. In the Application…

Whitelist Azure

If you want to call a webservice from Azure, the webservice provider might ask you for a list of ip addresses to whitelist on their firewall. As you know, Azure has no fixed IP addresses. It’s no good practice either to supply ip addresses per individual service. As an example in the properties of an…

Debug Azure Functions

Since July I’m doing an assignment where Azure functions are intensively used. The functions are developed in Visual Studio, which has many advantages over developing functions in the Azure Portal. In Visual Studio you have intellisense, functions can be brought under source control and you can easily debug function execution. When you develop a Http…

Durable Functions

I a previous post I explained the webhook solution to make it possible to call a long running function asynchronuously. This approach is quite complicated, since you will have to create and manage queues yourself. There’s a solution called Azure Durable Functions where you can simply call a function from your logic app an leave the…

Large Web Request

A client has sent messages with a size > 30 MB to an Azure Web App. After two minutes the connection is aborted, which means the Azure Web App cannot be not called. A colleague pointed me to the following site: Slowtick.com I have changed the maximum message size (in bytes) and time-out settings in the…
