We have an ASP.NET application that runs locally on Windows PCs. We have the following requirement:

During an event, our application will send an email to a recipient with an Approval link.
Recipient can either approve or decline the request.
Based on the approval or decline state, our desktop app should trigger an event to change a state.

I'm not familiar with cloud services. I would like to know whether any public cloud service providers like AWS or Azure offer any cloud service to support such scenarios.

Note: We already have a provision to send email from our application. We are using MailKit.

    any website technology with a persistent store would work. the links in email are to the cloud hosted website. it would also have a api called by on premise server.

    if you want to stick to asp.net both AWS or Azure support it. you might also be interested in Azure functions or AWS lambdas.
