Azure functions and Python

Get data from a http request, in a function app.

How is it possible?

This is the link to the official documentation https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/python/api/azure-functions/azure.functions.httprequest?view=azure-python .

We prefer to set down some notes, anyway.

“`def main(request: func.HttpRequest): “`

so, you can access, the request data (mind that often the request is shoted in req):

  • request method  with request.method (like  ‘OPTIONS’)
  • request header with request.headers.get, for instance
    (‘Access-Control-Allow-Origin’), ‘*’, ‘http response header allow origin’)

    request.headers.get(‘Access-Control-Allow-Origin’), ‘*’, ‘http response header allow origin’)

  • the body = request.get_json(). Simply that: this command already returns a dictionary! I.e. body == dictionary
