Which Azure Functions to use (if I need to update data once a day only)

I am trying to come up with integration plan using Azure Function.

Here are requirements:
1) Pull data from a third party web service once a day.
This is a third party company's website (https://developer.intacct.com/tools/sdk-net/)

2) I am thinking about using Azure Data Factory to move that data to Azure SQL once a day as well.

Which Azure Function should I use?
HTTP Trigger, Timer?

Thank you so much!

@KingJava ,

For pulling data from a third party function once a day, you can use a timer trigger as it can be triggered based on a schedule using cron expression.

I am not sure about your second requirement. You can explore the ADF activity functions , data factory pipelines to choose which one suits your requirements.

I hope this helps!
