Upload a file for analysis

The initiation of an analysis job requires a path to an Azure blob that is accessible by URL. The ability to upload a file to Azure blob storage in the specified geography using the upload service is provided. It is not required that the upload API be used in order to run analysis. You can upload using a POST request to the following: [Geographical URI]/api/upload?api-version=1.0. Uploading a file up to 30 MB in size is supported. For anything larger you will need to provide your own externally accessible Azure storage and SAS URI.


This API does require an OAuth token.
