Supporting Azure Functions and WebJobs

Ensuring that works great with any web and logging framework for .NET, is a key priority for us. Serverless development using Azure Functions and WebJobs (as well as AWS Lambdas) have gained a lot of traction during the last years. Logging errors from Functions and WebJobs have been supported using our API client for a while, but today we are ready to introduce native support. Let me introduce you to Elmah.Io.Functions.

With the Elmah.Io.Functions NuGet package, logging errors from Azure Functions and WebJobs requires only a single line of code. In the following example, I'm logging all errors happening in a timed function. Start by installing the Elmah.Io.Functions package:

Install-Package Elmah.Io.Functions -Pre

And now for the code:

[ElmahIoExceptionFilter("API_KEY", "LOG_ID")]
public static class Function1
    public static void Run([TimerTrigger("0 */1 * * * *")]TimerInfo myTimer, TraceWriter log)
        // Your business logic goes here

Look ma, no try catch! That's right. The ElmahIoExceptionFilter attribute automatically logs all unhandled exceptions in your business logic.
