QueueOutput Interface

Definition

Place this on a parameter whose value would be written to a storage queue. The parameter type should be OutputBinding, where T could be one of:

  • Any native Java types such as int, String, byte[]
  • Any POJO type

The following example shows a Java function that creates a queue message for each HTTP request received.

@FunctionName("httpToQueue")
@QueueOutput(name = "item", queueName = "myqueue-items", connection = "AzureWebJobsStorage")
 public String pushToQueue(
    @HttpTrigger(name = "request", methods = {HttpMethod.POST}, authLevel = AuthorizationLevel.ANONYMOUS)
     final String message,
    @HttpOutput(name = "response") final OutputBinding<String> result
 ) {
     result.setValue(message + " has been added.");
     return message;
 }
public interface QueueOutput implements Annotation
Implements
java.lang.annotation.Annotation
