Deploy Azure function app with private endpoint results gateway error

SATYA PAVANKUMAR 40 Reputation points Microsoft Employee

I am trying to do ZIP deployment of azure function app that has private endpoint enabled. As a part of this, I created azure resources as follow:

  • Function app with private endpoint enabled and disabled Allow public access on.
  • Storage account with private endpoint enabled, disabled public access and associcate with function app. I make sure private IP is added to Private DNS Zone A record.
  • Created VNET with 2 subnets such as InboundSubnet, OutboundSubnet. I associated same inbound subnets while creating azure function app, storage account. For Azure VNET integration outbound traffic , I used OutboundSubnet.

Since inbound traffic for function , storage is cut off with internet access, I published my ZIP to a storage account(Newly created and public enabled) via build(CI) pipeline and fetching the same ZIP file in release pipeline to deploy.

Function App name: demo-funcapp-test

However I am getting below issues:

The gateway did not receive a response from 'Microsoft.Web' within the specified time period

Encountered an error (InternalServerError) from host runtime. - From aztivity log

Ran CLI command from local machine

The command failed with an unexpected error. Here is the traceback: HTTPSConnectionPool(host='', port=443): Max retries exceeded with url: /api/publish?type=zip&async=false (Caused by NewConnectionError('<urllib3.connection.HTTPSConnection object at 0x05EA4B50>: Failed to establish a new connection: [Errno 11001] getaddrinfo failed'))

Commands I tried:

$ZIP_URL = (az storage blob generate-sas --full-uri --permissions r --expiry 2023-12-31T23:59:59Z --account-name publicsgtest -c functionzipfiles -n | Out-String).Trim()

Write-Host $ZIP_URL

az webapp deploy --name demo-funcapp-test --resource-group osh-poc-rg --type zip --src-url $ZIP_URL --async false

az webapp deployment source config-zip --name demo-funcapp-test --resource-group osh-poc-rg --src $ZIP_URL

I tried to set env variable AZURE_CLI_DISABLE_CONNECTION_VERIFICATION=1 in azure function app settings but none helping.

    @SATYA PAVANKUMAR Thanks for your patience, you were trying to deploy the zip file from the storage account(public) to the private endpoint enabled function app and it was failing with below error

    2023-12-06T08:58:05.1946792Z ERROR: Gateway Timeout({"error":{"code":"GatewayTimeout","message":"The gateway did not receive a response from 'Microsoft.Web' within the specified time period."}})

    verified the zip file and noticed that folder structure was incorrect, it had 2 folders in it. We modified the zip file and tried removing private endpoint and did the deployment first after deployment, we added the private endpoint and vnet. with that we were able to deploy the functions successfully.

    Do let me know if you have any queries.
