Creating Azure Logic Apps

Using Azure Logic Apps a user can simply schedule tasks and automate them, and logic apps are very much a simplification of designing and building applications

In this article I will explain about Azure Logic. The Azure Logic appis a cloud service that helps the users to schedule, and automate their tasks. Logic Apps is very useful for simplification of designing and building scalable solutions for application integration, data integration, system integration, and enterprise application integration. In this article, we will be creating a logic app that regularly checks a website's RSS feed for new items. If new items exist, the logic app will send an email for each item.
 
Example, Azure Logic app functions may include:
  1. Sending email notifications with Office 365 when events happen in various systems, and services.
  2. Monitoring tweets for a specific subject, and creating alerts for items that need review.

Step 2

After selecting Logic apps, we need to provide the basic required requirements for creating an Azure Logic app. We need to provide a unique name for the Logic app and create a resource group or select an existing resource group, in addition to that select->datacentre location and then select->Create.

Step 3

The deployment process will take some time and after the resource has been created the logic app designer window will show the predefined templates. Now, we can select the blank Logic app, so that we can create a Logic app.

Step 4

The designer of the logic app will show all present services that are all available with the triggers, which a user can use in the logic app. In the search box, search for RSS and select a trigger->when a feed item is published.

Step 5

Provide a link to the Webpage RSS feed, as per your wish. In addition to that, we can also change frequency and interval on how the Logic app should check the feed content and click Save.
 
So coming to the next step, from the designer page, select New step-> Add an action button in trigger page.
 
Step 6

For sending an email from the user account, type Gmail in the search box and then, Select->send Email.

Now, we need to provide the details for triggering the action by providing email id & required fields for the content and then select->Run.

Step 8

Finally, we can  run the logic app, for checking that,  click on notifications and we can see that the trigger is successfully executed. If the logic app finds the new items and feeds then the logic app will send the contents to email.
