General availability: Azure Cosmos DB Azure Functions extension version 4
Published date: December 14, 2022
The new version of the Azure Cosmos DB Azure Functions extension is based on version 3 of the Azure Cosmos DB .NET SDK. This adds the option to authenticate with Azure Active Directory instead of using a primary key. It also has simplified NuGet dependencies because support for the change feed processor is built-in to the SDK rather than being a separate package. This means you will no longer have to worry about mismatched versions between the SDK and the extension, if you’re using the latest version of the Azure Cosmos DB .NET SDK. In addition to these benefits, the new extension also takes advantage of the superior performance of the v3 .NET SDK and user experience features such as seamlessly deserializing JSON documents.
