Using Azure Functions? Don't use Read-Only Resource Locks, for now.

It's a good practice to secure your Azure resources. One of the approaches to achieve this is by using Resource Locks. These allow you to add Read-Only or Delete locks on your resources to prevent somebody from changing or removing it.

Unfortunately, I've noticed that Azure Functions doesn't really like Read-Only Resource Locks as it stopped listing my Functions.

However, when you remove the read-only lock on your resource/resource group again, they're back!

You can track the status of this issue on GitHub. Let's hope we can use them together again in the future!
