running azure function locally (conda)

Prasad, Rakesh 221 Reputation points


I am trying to run azure function locally.

I want to use conda python for it. And I do not want to set python path at system level. (i have 4-5 python projects each using different conda environment).

function runs fine in Azure. My question is can i run it locally with conda?

my build process run fine, as settings.json and tasks.json can take python path as argument. and I am able to run it with one specific environment of conda.

but it seems launch is having an issue. how can i resolve it? 74160-azure-function-local-run.png

i am getting error as =>
