Azure Functions app provides Authorization Level (Anonymous/Function/Admin) options during Function App creation in your code. It is more on Authorization of your App or API but if you want to bring authentication to your function app, we have App Service Authentication feature.

App Service Authentication by default is Off on Azure Function App and users will not be promoted for Login.  App service authentication provides below authentication providers

  1. Azure Active Directory
  2. Microsoft Account
  3. Facebook
