At the time this was written, Azure Logic Apps were still in Preview. I was on a project where we needed to use an HTTP trigger for a logic app, but we didn’t want this endpoint to be exposed to the world. However, there was no way to lock down the endpoint.

So, I needed to come up with a workaround. The workaround consisted of inspecting the HTTP request headers for a specific header, and making sure it was the correct value. This was a little tricky to implement so I thought I’d do a blog post about it… and here we are!
