Microsoft Azure Logic Apps Service is a service that provides companies and organizations with a fast way of creating a powerful integration solution. This service allows key enterprises to create powerful integration solutions by deploying and running Logic Apps wherever they are needed. It also automates workflows and increases scalability.
This blog will provide all the information you need to fully understand the Azure Logic Apps service. Let’s begin by giving an overview of the service.
What are Azure Logic Apps and how do they work?
Azure Logic Apps is a platform as a Service (iPaaS), which is created using a containerized runtime. This cloud-based platform service allows you to build and run automated workflows that integrate your apps, data and services. This allows you to easily create highly scalable integration solutions that can be used in your business and business-to-business (B2B).
Logic Apps also clarifies how you connect legacy, modern and cutting-edge systems across hybrid, on-premises and cloud environments. Logic Apps Service offers the following tasks and processes:
First, you can schedule and send email notifications using Office 365 to notify you when a particular event occurs.
Secondly, routing and processing customer order across both on-premises systems as well as cloud services.
Finally, upload files from an FTP server or SFTP server to Azure Storage.
Logic Apps: Working
First, every workflow in logic starts with a single trigger. A trigger is when a condition is met. This could be when a specific event occurs or data meets certain criteria.
Many triggers also have scheduling capabilities that allow you to control how often your workflow runs. One or more actions then execute the trigger. The workflow begins with a Dynamics trigger. It contains a condition called When a record has been updated.
Secondly, the actions include transforming XML and calling a web application for updating data.
The trigger fires when it finds an event that matches the condition. The Logic Apps service creates a workflow instance that runs the actions every time the trigger fires.
Azure Logic Apps: Features
The Logic Apps integration platform provides prebuilt Microsoft-managed API connectors with built-in operations that allow you to connect and integrate apps, data, services, systems, and services. This allows you to concentrate on the design and implementation of your solution’s business logic. To get a better understanding, let’s look at the top features of Logics Apps.
1. With easy-to-use tools, visualizing and editing workflows
Logic Apps provides visual designing tools that simplify complex processes and save time. Using the Logic Apps Designer, Visual Studio Code or Visual Studio, you can create workflows from start-to-finish.
2. Connecting different systems in different environments
The Logic Apps platform allows for seamless integration of disparate systems across the cloud, on-premises, or hybrid environments. It also provides a reliable, consistent, and fast way to deliver reusable and reconfigurable solutions in these situations.
3. Built-in extensibility
If there is no Azure connector, you can create and call your own code snippets with this service. You can also create your own connectors and APIs that you can call directly from your workflows.
4. Accessing resources inside Azure virtual networks
When you create an integrated environment (ISE), Logic app workflows have access to secured resources such as virtual machines (VMs), and other systems or service that are part of an Azure virtual network. An ISE is a separate instance of the Azure Logic Apps services that runs on dedicated resources. It is independent from the global multi-tenant Azure Logic Apps.
However, running logic applications in your own instance reduces the impact of other Azure tenants on app performance.
5. Develop, deploy, and run anywhere
You can run logic applications locally or in Azure. This service offers private endpoints, simplified virtual networking access, and deployment slots. Visual Studio Code allows you to debug and test on Windows, macOS and Linux.
6. Boost productivity by automating business-critical workflows
Azure Logic Apps allows you to create large, complex workflows. You can also view more steps simultaneously without scrolling. This app supports stateless workflows to improve performance in response and request scenarios.
7. You can use hundreds of connectors that are not in your box or create your own
This service allows you to access a large number of software-as-a-service (SaaS), and cloud connectors, including SQL, Office 365, Salesforce, and many more. You can create running connectors in code.
8. Supporting complex mapping, B2B and enterprise messaging scenarios
Working with trading partners that use Electronic Data Interchange standards (EDI), such as X12, EDIFACT, and AS2. This allows you to host schemas and maps locally within your logic apps, and then reference them with new built in actions. Azure Monitor and Application Intelligences allow you to troubleshoot issues.
