Hi

I'm starting with azure functions and should, as part of the function, store output into a Sharepoint site. How would I go about for doing this?

Best, Andreas

    Hi,

    There is no azure function adapter for SharePoint:

    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-functions/functions-triggers-bindings?tabs=csharp

    You can output to SharePoint using code to access the Graph API

    Graph Explorer is handy to create graph queries

    https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/graph-explorer

    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/api/driveitem-put-content?view=graph-rest-1.0&tabs=http

    Andreas Nef Thanks for posting your question in Microsoft Q&A. As mentioned by Bruno Lucas, there are no supported bindings available for SharePoint in Azure Functions. You can use PnP Framework or CSOM to connect to SharePoint and process the output based on your need.

    Here are some references that would be helpful:

    PnP V4 .NET 6 - https://pnp.github.io/pnpcore/demos/Demo.AzureFunction.OutOfProcess.AppOnly/readme.html

    PnP Code samples - https://github.com/pnp/pnpcore/tree/dev/samples

    CSOM discussion thread: Use CSOM instead of PnP core to interact with SharePoint online inside my Azure function, detailed steps: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/answers/questions/1167689/what-i-need-to-do-to-replace-pnp-core-services-wit

    Alternatively, if you can use Logic Apps, it has SharePoint connector to connect to SharePoint and manage documents/list items and review known issues and limitations. I hope this helps with your question and let us know if you have any other questions or face issues.
