Now that we’ve an Azure Function that works correctly, we will connect to a SharePoint Online site, and, in Site contents, create a list, to manage automation of our process :

Give a name and a description to this list. You can choose to show it in the lateral panel or not :

SharePoint Online site - Create List

Modify the Title column, with the new name LastName and add a new column, with type Single line of text :
