Description

The Set-AzureStorageBlobContent cmdlet uploads a local file to an Azure Storage blob.

Examples

Example 1: Upload a named file

PS C:\>Set-AzureStorageBlobContent -Container "ContosoUpload" -File ".\PlanningData" -Blob "Planning2015"

This command uploads the file that is named PlanningData to a blob named Planning2015.

Example 2: Upload all files under the current folder

PS C:\>Get-ChildItem -File -Recurse | Set-AzureStorageBlobContent -Container "ContosoUploads"

This command uses the core Windows PowerShell cmdlet Get-ChildItem to get all the files in the current folder and in subfolders, and then passes them to the current cmdlet by using the pipeline operator. The Set-AzureStorageBlobContent cmdlet uploads the files to the container named ContosoUploads.

Example 3: Overwrite an existing blob

PS C:\>Get-AzureStorageBlob -Container "ContosoUploads" -Blob "Planning2015" | Set-AzureStorageBlobContent -File "ContosoPlanning"

This command gets the blob named Planning2015 in the ContosoUploads container by using the Get-AzureStorageBlob cmdlet, and then passes that blob to the current cmdlet. The command uploads the file that is named ContosoPlanning as Planning2015. This command does not specify the Force parameter. The command prompts you for confirmation. If you confirm the command, the cmdlet overwrites the existing blob.

Example 4: Upload a file to a container by using the pipeline

PS C:\>Get-AzureStorageContainer -Container "ContosoUpload*" | Set-AzureStorageBlobContent -File "ContosoPlanning" -Blob "Planning2015"

This command gets the container that starts with the string ContosoUpload by using the Get-AzureStorageContainer cmdlet, and then passes that blob to the current cmdlet. The command uploads the file that is named ContosoPlanning as Planning2015.

Example 5: Upload a file and metadata

PS C:\>$Metadata = @{"key" = "value"; "name" = "test"}
PS C:\> Set-AzureStorageBlobContent -File "ContosoPlanning" -Container "ContosoUploads" -Metadata $Metadata

The first command creates a hash table that contains metadata for a blob, and stores that hash table in the $Metadata variable.

The second command uploads the file that is named ContosoPlanning to the container named ContosoUploads. The blob includes the metadata stored in $Metadata.

Required Parameters

-CloudBlob

Specifies a CloudBlob object. To obtain a CloudBlob object, use the Get-AzureStorageBlob cmdlet.

Type:CloudBlob
Aliases:ICloudBlob
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-CloudBlobContainer

Specifies a CloudBlobContainer object from the Azure Storage Client library. This cmdlet uploads content to a blob in the container that this parameter specifies. To obtain a CloudBlobContainer object, use the Get-AzureStorageContainer cmdlet.

Type:CloudBlobContainer
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Container

Specifies the name of a container. This cmdlet uploads a file to a blob in the container that this parameter specifies.

Type:String
Position:1
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-File

Specifies a local file path for a file to upload as blob content.

Type:String
Aliases:FullName
Position:0
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False

Optional Parameters

-Blob

Specifies the name of a blob. This cmdlet uploads a file to the Azure Storage blob that this parameter specifies.

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

Specifies the type for the blob that this cmdlet uploads. The acceptable values for this parameter are:- Block

  • Page

    The default value is Block.
Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-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:AzureStorageContext
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName, ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Force

Indicates that this cmdlet overwrites an existing blob without prompting you for confirmation.

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

Specifies properties for the uploaded blob.

Type:Hashtable
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.
