Whenever you deal with ARM templates, you always face to handle some sensitive information. This is mainly for API keys handling. How can you cope with those values other than hard-code them into the templates? There are six different ways to handle them we’re going to discuss in this post.
In January 2019, Azure Functions Team has released a new version of its runtime,
I wasn’t able to believe what that meant at the first place.
Does that mean we now can get rid of the infamous
staticmodifier from both classes and methods?
In my previous post, ARM Template Lifecycle Management: DOs and DON’Ts, I recommend to consider YAML for ARM template authoring. In the post, I also suggest using yarm to convert YAML to JSON and/or vice-versa. However,
yarm is not that easy to use because it has to be deployed to Azure or, at least, it has to be run...
In my previous post, Testing ARM Templates with Pester #1 – PowerShell, I showed how to test behaviours ARM template deployment without actual deployment. At the end of the post, I also briefly mentioned how we can integrate this testing into our CI/CD pipeline. However, I was actually asked many times how I did it on
Are you an experienced DevOps engineer or managing cloud resources on Azure, or about to jump into Azure resource management?
Azure Logic App is a set of workflow definitions, which is written in JSON format. The nature of JSON object results in this being tightly bound with ARM template. In other words, the Logic App has a dependency on an ARM template. Due to these characteristics, when any update is made on the workflow, the...
Dependency Injections on Azure Functions are not very intuitive. I’ve written many blog posts about dependency management on Azure Functions to improve testability and this was my latest one. However, they are mostly about V1, which supports .NET Framework. Azure Functions V2 is now on public preview and I’m going to...
As one of serverless families in Azure, Cosms DB is becoming very popular. In many development scenarios, Cosmos DB actually replaces existing RDBMS because it requires relatively lower cost for maintenance, and is easy to use. Another serverless family, Azure Functions, also provides triggers and bindings for Cosmos...
In many information system development scenarios, including integration scenarios, handling date/time value is always problematic. If your information systems reside in your office or data centre located in your area, that won’t bring about too much trouble. However, if your organisation runs applications in several...
ARM template is a great tool for Azure resources deployment. However, it’s very tricky to use because:
- It’s a JSON object with massive number of lines,
- Its JSON structure is quite complex so that it’s not that easy to read at a glance,
- It’s hard to validate if there is a typo or not, and
- We only know if the resource...
