Manage RSS feeds by using Azure Logic Apps

With Azure Logic Apps and the RSS connector, you can create automated tasks and workflows for any RSS feed, for example:

  • Monitor when RSS feed items are published.
  • List all RSS feed items.

RSS (Rich Site Summary), also called Really Simple Syndication, is a popular format for web syndication and is used for publishing frequently updated content, such as blog posts and news headlines. Many content publishers provide an RSS feed so users can subscribe to that content.

You can use an RSS trigger that gets responses from an RSS feed and makes the output available to other actions. You can use an RSS action in your logic apps to perform a task with the RSS feed. If you're new to logic apps, review What is Azure Logic Apps?

Prerequisites

Connect to an RSS feed

  1. Sign in to the Azure portal, and open your logic app in Logic App Designer, if not open already.

  2. Choose a path:

    • For blank logic apps, in the search box, enter "rss" as your filter. Under the triggers list, select the trigger you want.

      -or-

    • For existing logic apps, under the step where you want to add an action, choose New step. In the search box, enter "rss" as your filter. Under the actions list, select the action you want.

  3. Provide the necessary details for your selected trigger or action and continue building your logic app's workflow.
