How can I authenticate from an external site for communication with a Function App?

I have an external website that I would like to call my Function App. However, this Function App has Service Authentication enabled and needs to be logged into using Active Directory. Is it possible for my non-Azure App Service hosted website to get data from the Function App?

It is possible for your website to authenticate and get data from the Function App, regardless of whether it is hosted on Azure.
While there are a few options here, I would recommend to use API Management for Authentication.
The following article walks through how to configure this for your Function:
