Create Local Functions

Local functions are children of global functions and represent an action that users can do in the actual entities, systems, and locations scoped within an organization’s business structure. You add local functions to global functions to logically link the generic actions that users can do in applications to the actual entities, systems, and locations where they can do them.  In this model, “Create Azure Groups in Tenant X” could be a local function belonging to the “Create Azure Groups” global function.

This article demonstrates how to create a local function by adding a local function to the Create Azure Groups global function created in the Create Global Functions topic.
