Azure webjobs failed [Access is denied]

Question

I created a console application to read gmail inbox.I need my console app to read emails every 15 minutes.So i published the console app as webjobs with runmode : "On demand" and published the app using azure services (web apps).

But my webjobs doesn't seem to run and there is no option to schedule a webjob when i select publish as azure webjobs.

As soon as i publish i get this error in visual studio :

'ICICIEmailParser.sstageEntities-Web.config Connection String' argument cannot be null or empty

The webjob has no scheduled time so i manually ran the webjob from azure portal and when viewed log i see below error

Things i have done :

I have a client-secret.json file of google oauth. I have added google secret and client id in my azure web app authentication/authorization I set javascript origin and redirect uri in google developer console

This is my main method :

static void Main(string[] args)
    {

        Task.WaitAll(GetEmail());


    }
static async Task GetEmail() {
//my c# code to read gmail inbox...

}

Any help would be appreciated !

Thanks in advance

Solution

Unhandled Exception: System.AggregateException: One or more errors occurred. ---> System.Net.HttpListenerException: Access is denied

According to your description, I assumed that you have followed .NET Quickstart to create your .NET console application that makes requests to the Gmail API. I followed the above tutorial and deployed it as Azure WebJobs, then I could reproduce this error. When running your command-line application (WebJob) on Azure, it would prompt you to authorize access and open a new window or tab in the default browser of the web server. However Azure WebJobs work as a background task under behind the website hosted on Azure for doing regular jobs and batch work, the end-users couldn't Interact with your WebJob to finish the authorization.

But my webjobs doesn't seem to run and there is no option to schedule a webjob when i select publish as azure webjobs.

As I known, you could leverage the following approaches to schedule your WebJob:

I have added google secret and client id in my azure web app authentication/authorization I set javascript origin and redirect uri in google developer console

Per my understanding, you are trying to authenticate/authorize your web app with Google Account and schedule the WebJob to read messages from Gmail with the logged UserCredential. As I known, WebJobs couldn't directly communicate with your web app, I assumed that you need to store the logged UserCredential and schedule your webjob to retrieve the UserCredential to read messages from Gmail API.
