Posting to Raspberry Pi webserver from Azure Cloud Function

Hello all, I am trying to post to my Raspberry Pi via from an Azure Cloud Function. The ability to post to the Raspi needs to be 24/7. I don’t know what IP address Azure will post from because Azure Cloud Functions are dynamic, so I can’t setup IP whitelists in to filter.

The application is the Azure Cloud Function does a chatbot and then when it’s ready to turn on some LED lights it posts to the Raspi which controls via DMX the LED lights. The Raspi is behind a firewall, so I’m using to give the Raspi external access.
