Intermittent Trigger Issues with Event Grid for Blob Upload and Deletion in Azure Function

  Kiến thức lập trình

I am using an Event Grid subscription to trigger an Azure Function for handling blob uploads and deletions in Azure Blob Storage. However, I’m encountering intermittent issues with the triggers not firing consistently.


Storage Account (Event Grid)

Event Grid Subscription subscribed to Microsoft.Storage.BlobCreated and Microsoft.Storage.BlobDeleted events.

Azure Function Event Grid Trigger

Issue: The problem is that the Event Grid trigger is not firing every time a blob is uploaded or deleted. When the trigger does fire, both the upload and delete actions work correctly. However, the trigger itself is inconsistent.

Steps Taken:

Subscribed to both Microsoft.Storage.BlobCreated and Microsoft.Storage.BlobDeleted events.

Implemented function code to handle different event types and execute the necessary business logic.

Despite this setup, the triggers do not consistently fire for every blob upload or deletion event.

Request for Help: Could someone help me troubleshoot and resolve these intermittent issues with the Event Grid triggers for blob uploads and deletions? Any insights or guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!
