Retrieve Azure Storage access keys in ARM template

Last updated: 11/09/2019

This template will create a Storage account, after which it will create a API connection by dynamically retrieving the primary key of the Storage account. The API connection is then used in a Logic App as a trigger polling for blob changes. The complete scenario can be found on https://blog.eldert.net/retrieve-azure-storage-access-keys-in-arm-template.
