Logging to elmah.io from Azure WebJobs

Logging errors from Azure WebJobs, requires only a few lines of code. We've created a client specifically for Azure WebJobs.

Install the Elmah.Io.Functions package:

Install-Package Elmah.Io.Functions

Log all uncaught exceptions using the ElmahIoExceptionFilter attribute:

[ElmahIoExceptionFilter("API_KEY", "LOG_ID")]
public class Functions
{
    public static void ProcessQueueMessage([QueueTrigger("queue")] string msg, TextWriter log)
    {
        throw new Exception("Some exception");
    }
}

Replace API_KEY with your API key (Where is my API key?) and LOG_ID (Where is my log ID?) with your log ID.

If your WebJob method is declared as async, remember to change the return type to Task. Without it, ElmahIoExceptionFilter is never invoked.

The filter also supports config variables:

[ElmahIoExceptionFilter("%apiKey%", "%logId%")]

The variables above, would require you to add your API key and log ID to your App.config:

<configuration>
  <appSettings>
    <add key="apiKey" value="API_KEY"/>
    <add key="logId" value="LOG_ID"/>
  </appSettings>
</configuration>
