Cannot Find Module ‘@azure/functions’ or its Corresponding Type Declarations

Recently, I was working with a requirement where I was trying to create a typescript Azure Function using the Visual Studio Code IDE. After creating the typescript Azure Function, I got the error “Cannot Find Module ‘@azure/functions’ or its Corresponding Type Declarations“.

The Azure Function code was as below.

import { AzureFunction, Context, HttpRequest } from "@azure/functions"

const httpTrigger: AzureFunction = async function (context: Context, req: HttpRequest): Promise<void> {
    context.log('HTTP trigger function processed a request.');
    const name = (req.query.name || (req.body && req.body.name));
    const responseMessage = name
        ? "Hello, " + name + ". This HTTP triggered function executed successfully."
        : "This HTTP triggered function executed successfully. Pass a name in the query string or in the request body for a personalized response.";

    context.res = {
        // status: 200, /* Defaults to 200 */
        body: responseMessage
    };

};

export default httpTrigger;

On the first line itself, I got the error Cannot Find Module ‘@azure/functions’ or its Corresponding Type Declarations.
