Description

The Get-AzureStorageContainer cmdlet lists the storage containers associated with the storage account in Azure.

Examples

Example 1: Get Azure Storage blob by name

PS C:\>Get-AzureStorageContainer -Name container*

This example uses a wildcard character to return a list of all containers with a name that starts with container.

Example 2: Get Azure Storage container by container name prefix

PS C:\>Get-AzureStorageContainer -Prefix "container"

This example uses the Prefix parameter to return a list of all containers with a name that starts with container.

Required Parameters

-Prefix

Specifies a prefix used in the name of the container or containers you want to get. You can use this to find all containers that start with the same string, such as "my" or "test".

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False

Optional Parameters

-ClientTimeoutPerRequest

Specifies the client-side time-out interval, in seconds, for one service request. If the previous call fails in the specified interval, this cmdlet retries the request. If this cmdlet does not receive a successful response before the interval elapses, this cmdlet returns an error.

Type:Int32
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-ConcurrentTaskCount

Specifies the maximum concurrent network calls. You can use this parameter to limit the concurrency to throttle local CPU and bandwidth usage by specifying the maximum number of concurrent network calls. The specified value is an absolute count and is not multiplied by the core count. This parameter can help reduce network connection problems in low bandwidth environments, such as 100 kilobits per second. The default value is 10.

Type:Int32
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Context

Specifies the storage context. To create it, you can use the New-AzureStorageContext cmdlet.

Type:AzureStorageContext
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName, ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-ContinuationToken

Specifies a continuation token for the blob list.

Type:BlobContinuationToken
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-InformationAction

Specifies how this cmdlet responds to an information event.The acceptable values for this parameter are:- Continue

  • Ignore
  • Inquire
  • SilentlyContinue
  • Stop
  • Suspend
Type:ActionPreference
Aliases:infa
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-InformationVariable

Specifies an information variable.

Type:String
Aliases:iv
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-MaxCount

Specifies the maximum number of objects that this cmdlet returns.

Type:Int32
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Name

Specifies the container name. If container name is empty, the cmdlet lists all the containers. Otherwise, it lists all containers that match the specified name or the regular name pattern.

Type:String
Aliases:N, Container
Position:0
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName, ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-PipelineVariable

Stores the value of the current pipeline element as a variable, for any named command as it flows through the pipeline.

Type:String
Aliases:pv
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-ServerTimeoutPerRequest

Specifies the service side time-out interval, in seconds, for a request. If the specified interval elapses before the service processes the request, the storage service returns an error.

Type:Int32
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
