That is the way that I tend to go for it, but it does have the downside of cold start potentially impacting your GraphQL endpoint, which is why it's worth looking at App Service as well.

Personally I did end up migrating to App Services, another reason to do so is "Subscription" types

I haven't played with subscriptions in GraphQL yet, but I've got some ideas on how to tackle it using SignalR

Can you point to any working sample on how to get subscriptions working on Apollo Server with Azure functions. ?

Conveniently I wrote a blog post about this today - dev.to/azure/graphql-on-azure-part...

The best way to have a server that provides Subscriptions is to implement it on App Service as Azure Functions doesn't provide a way in which you can connect to a WebSocket (given it's event driven, a persistent connection wouldn't fit the model).
