Azure Digital Twins with Function and Private Link service

Last updated: 2022-02-24

This template creates an Azure Digital Twins service configured with a Virtual Network connected Azure Function that can communicate through a Private Link Endpoint to Digital Twins. It also creates a Private DNS Zone to allow seamless hostname resolution of the Digital Twins Endpoint from the Virtual Network to the Private Endpoint internal subnet IP address. The hostname is stored as a setting to the Azure Function with name 'ADT_ENDPOINT'.
