I love Azure Functions
Okay with that out of the way I can explain the following:
When you are developing Azure functions locally using the azure function tools and runtime every time you start the functions runtime to test/debug some of your functions the timer triggered functions will run as well - as they should.
However if you are not working on those timer triggered functions it can be a pain that they keep triggering...
Don't disable the function
I saw a lot of solutions on the internet proposing you set disabled:true in your function.json file. That's fine and will work, but when you publish that function will still be disabled and that is not what you want. There is a better solution read on ...
Let's say you have 3 functions:
- TimerTriggeredFunction ==> this is the function you don't want to trigger
You can specify which functions should trigger in your host.json file which should be in the by adding the following
eh voila the timer triggered function will not run.
