Known Issues

  • I was hoping to have the Azure Functions live as part of the Azure Kit library, but the SDK as of the time of publish still could not reliably scan the assembly for functions and create the manifest. So if you're using Azure Functions, you'll have to either use that project directly or derive from it.
