How do I edit a read-only Azure Function App?

Need to work on something left by another colleague, but I can't seem to edit it in the portal, and it's not obvious to me how to do it another way.

    Hello @Dan Miller
    When you publish an app to Azure Function using Visual Studio or any CI/CD tool like Azure DevOps, your app is compiled(dll file) and packed into zip file, also becomes read-only to make sure that you don't attempt to modify it via Portal editing.

    If you need to update your app, open code of the app in Visual Studio, make changes and publish it again.

    Hi @Andriy Bilous , you mean to download the .zip and change the code and after that upload it on Azure, don't you?. I have the same problem, I've got Azure Exentisn on VSC but I can't edit the code. However I can dowload the zip from Azure and change the code, but what I can't do is to change te code from the Azure extension. I'm confused!. Do I need a special persmision to upload the code from VSC?
