Terraform: Get Azure Function key

So you’ve deployed your function and you want to get pass the secure url another component in your deployment so it can use it…

Well currently there isn’t an output item on the azurerm_function_app resource in Terraform (I’m hoping to fix that up if I get some time) so how do you do it?

Here is a my quick and dirty fix using the azure_template_deployment resource in Terraform.

We create an empty release and then use the listkeys function to pull back the keys for the function. We only want the function key so we index into the object with functionKeys.default (you can get the master key too if you want).

Then we output this from the Terraform so it can be used elsewhere. You can now go ahead and pass this into your other component.
