HTTP Trigger template (Azure Functions)

Create your first Arcus Azure Functions with HTTP Trigger project

First, install the template from NuGet:

> dotnet new --install Arcus.Templates.AzureFunctions.Http

When installed, the template can be created with shortname: arcus-az-func-http:

Creates a starter worker project with by default configured:

  • Arcus secret store setup with Azure Key Vault secret provider (see more info here on what this includes)

  • Serilog as logging mechanism with default enrichers (version, application, and correlation when appropriate), sinking to Application Insights.

  • Example Azure Function HTTP 'order' trigger with:

    • HTTP correlation (see more info here on what this includes)
    • Request content and header to restrict to JSON content and JSON parsing with data model annotations validation
    • General exception handling that results in 500 Internal Server Error
    • OpenAPI docs generation and UI (see more info here)


And additional features available with options:

  • --include-healthchecks (default false): include a default Health Azure Function and health check services from the project
  • --exclude-openapi (default false): exclude the Azure Functions OpenAPI docs generation and UI from the project.
  • --exclude-serilog (default false): exclude the Serilog logging infrastructure in the Azure Functions project which includes default enrichers (version and application), and sinking to Application Insights.
