Microsoft Data Platform MVP based in Auckland, New Zealand. Software Engineer and Microsoft Data platform MVP. Before deploying our Functions, it's good to debug our Functions locally to ensure that it works as expected. Using Azure Function Core Tools can help speed up our development process by allowing us to retrieve our app settings from Azure. Using these tools, we can import our Function settings to that file so we can run our functions locally as if we were running it against that environment. We wouldn't want to waste our time copying and pasting all those settings!
