Debugging Azure Functions in Visual Studio

This article has been migrated to its new home here:

I wrote this article here where I talk about how to debug and troubleshoot an Azure Bot service.  Since the development approaches are very similar between the Bot Service and an Azure Function, I wonder if this feature will ever support the Bot Service.  It would be much easier doing that versus the example I documented.  That would be cool.

You can download the Visual Studio Tools for Azure Functions here.


Then in Visual Studio select File –> New –> Cloud –> Azure Functions (Preview)


Nonetheless, look at this video where this capability is discussed.  Enjoy and give it a try.
