BlobBaseClient.StartCopyFromUri(Uri, BlobCopyFromUriOptions, CancellationToken) Method


The StartCopyFromUri(Uri, BlobCopyFromUriOptions, CancellationToken) operation begins an asynchronous copy of the data from the source to this blob. You can check the CopyStatus returned from the GetProperties(BlobRequestConditions, CancellationToken) to determine if the copy has completed.

For more information, see Copy Blob.

Specifies the Uri of the source blob. The value may be a Uri of up to 2 KB in length that specifies a blob. A source blob in the same storage account can be authenticated via Shared Key. However, if the source is a blob in another account, the source blob must either be public or must be authenticated via a shared access signature. If the source blob is public, no authentication is required to perform the copy operation.

The source object may be a file in the Azure File service. If the source object is a file that is to be copied to a blob, then the source file must be authenticated using a shared access signature, whether it resides in the same account or in a different account.


Optional parameters.


Optional CancellationToken to propagate notifications that the operation should be cancelled.



A CopyFromUriOperation describing the state of the copy operation.


A RequestFailedException will be thrown if a failure occurs.
