Can I use GetAzureADAppOnlyAuthenticatedContext in Azure Functions?

I am trying out using SharePoint webhooks with Azure Functions. I have the webhook functioning okay, but looking at the authentication options for calling back into SharePoint, I would like to be able to use the GetAzureADAppOnlyAuthenticatedContext from the function.


I have watched the webcast on Authentication Manager;



I have 2 questions;

  1. Is it possible to use GetAzureADAppOnlyAuthenticatedContext from an Azure Function and is there any guidance if it is?
  2. What is the recommended authentication model from Azure functions to SharePoint?

For 2: have you considered to use the "classic" SPO App Only?

Hi, thanks for the response.


Yes, I am planning to try that, but I was hoping to work out whether the new Azure AD methods are an option in this scenario.
