How to trigger an Azure Function with a TimerTrigger during development
So you have just created an Azure Function App with a TimerTrigger and you want to debug it, but you do not want have to change the schedule every time.
You have two options:
- You can trigger the function using a HTTP POST
Make sure you supply an empty body
URL to use: http://localhost:7071/admin/functions/<your function name>
- Add "RunOnStartup= true" to your function method signature
