Connecting to Azure Functions Using REST
In the 9.8.0 release of the PubSub+ event broker, the Click-to-Connect Wizard in the PubSub+ Broker Manager can create REST connectors to cloud services like Azure Event Hubs, Azure Service Bus, and Azure Functions.
You can trigger Azure Functions on events from a PubSub+ event broker, leveraging its REST Delivery Points (RDP)s to event enable your serverless architecture as part of your event-driven architecture (EDA) journey.
The goal of this tutorial is to demonstrate how to set up an Azure Functions REST connector in a PubSub+ event broker to send messages to an Azure function from a remote connection. This tutorial will show you how to:
- Configure the event broker to set up RDPs with a REST connector
- Send messages to the Azure function using the Try Me! functionality built into the PubSub+ Broker Manager
- Review messages in the Azure Functions logs
- Solace PubSub+ Event Broker 9.8.0 or higher
- Access to PubSub+ Broker Manager (refer to PubSub+ Broker Manager)
- An Azure function that responds to the messages being sent from the connector
Connecting to Azure Functions
In the 9.8.0 release of the PubSub+ event broker, the new REST Connector wizard can help you set up and configure integrations to various cloud platforms and their services.
This example shows how to integrate the PubSub+ event broker with Azure Functions.
Log into the PubSub+ Broker Manager.
Launch the connector Click-to-Connect Wizard (refer to Creating a REST Connector with Click-to-Connect).
Click Microsoft Azure.
Click Azure Functions then click Authenticate.
Provide a name for this connector and fill in the Azure Function URL.
You can get the Azure Function URL from the Azure console in the Overview section.
Click Connector Setup and review the settings (they are auto-populated based on the Azure Function URL that was provided in previous step).
Click Subscription Setup and set up the subscription for the messages.
Click Create and Enable Connector to finalize the connector creation.
Use the PubSub+ Broker Manager Try Me! application to send a message.
View the message in the Azure Functions logs.
