Create a function app for serverless code execution
This Azure Functions sample script creates a function app, which is a container for your functions. The function app is created using the consumption plan, which is ideal for event-driven serverless workloads.
Use Azure Cloud Shell
Azure hosts Azure Cloud Shell, an interactive shell environment that you can use through your browser. You can use either Bash or PowerShell with Cloud Shell to work with Azure services. You can use the Cloud Shell preinstalled commands to run the code in this article without having to install anything on your local environment.
To start Azure Cloud Shell:
|Select Try It in the upper-right corner of a code block. Selecting Try It doesn't automatically copy the code to Cloud Shell.|
|Go to https://shell.azure.com, or select the Launch Cloud Shell button to open Cloud Shell in your browser.|
|Select the Cloud Shell button on the top-right menu bar in the Azure portal.|
To run the code in this article in Azure Cloud Shell:
Start Cloud Shell.
Select the Copy button on a code block to copy the code.
Paste the code into the Cloud Shell session by selecting Ctrl+Shift+V on Windows and Linux or by selecting Cmd+Shift+V on macOS.
Select Enter to run the code.
If you choose to install and use the CLI locally, this article requires that you are running the Azure CLI version 2.0 or later. Run
az --version to find the version. If you need to install or upgrade, see Install the Azure CLI.
This script creates an Azure Function app using the consumption plan.
#!/bin/bash # Function app and storage account names must be unique. storageName=mystorageaccount$RANDOM functionAppName=myserverlessfunc$RANDOM # Create a resource group. az group create --name myResourceGroup --location westeurope # Create an Azure storage account in the resource group. az storage account create \ --name $storageName \ --location westeurope \ --resource-group myResourceGroup \ --sku Standard_LRS # Create a serverless function app in the resource group. az functionapp create \ --name $functionAppName \ --storage-account $storageName \ --consumption-plan-location westeurope \ --resource-group myResourceGroup
Clean up deployment
After the sample script has been run, the following command can be used to remove the resource group and all resources associated with it.
az group delete --name myResourceGroup
Each command in the table links to command specific documentation. This script uses the following commands:
|az group create||Creates a resource group in which all resources are stored.|
|az storage account create||Creates an Azure Storage account.|
|az functionapp create||Creates a function app.|
