One of the things I have noticed while exploring Azure Function Apps is it is important to find ways to track what is going on during execution. While exploring the Azure Portal for one of my functions apps I noticed an option for steaming logs. This post is going to show how to get to the streaming logs for a Function App.
Log Streaming Location
From the Azure Portal open your Function App and select Platform features and then click the Log streaming link.
Log Streaming View
The following screenshot is from my sample App and has two different function executions listed.
For this small sample application, this feature isn’t critical, but on a larger application, it would become much more important. Log streaming is a quick way to get an idea of what is going on, but would only be one part of knowing what is going on.
