Azure Plans and Tiers

IronPDF works in Azure WebApps, Functions and WebJobs, using the Basic B1 tier or higher, or the Premium Plan.

The Free and Shared tiers, and the Consumption Plan, are not suitable for PDF rendering - as they are restricted by Microsoft to prevent access to User32/GDI+ functions required for rendering.

Restrictions are not present in Linux, or Windows in Docker containers.

  • The Golden Rule - In Azure Publishing Config, Deploying Azure Functions:: make sure "Run from package file" is NOT checked.
