New-AzureStorageContainer

Creates an Azure storage container.

Syntax

New-AzureStorageContainer [-Name] <String> [[-Permission] <BlobContainerPublicAccessType>]
 [-Context <AzureStorageContext>] [-ServerTimeoutPerRequest <Int32>] [-ClientTimeoutPerRequest <Int32>]
 [-ConcurrentTaskCount <Int32>] [-InformationAction <ActionPreference>] [-InformationVariable <String>]
 [-PipelineVariable <String>] [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The New-AzureStorageContainer cmdlet creates an Azure storage container.

Examples

Example 1: Create an Azure storage container

PS C:\>New-AzureStorageContainer -Name "ContainerName" -Permission Off

This command creates a storage container.

Example 2: Create multiple Azure storage containers

PS C:\>"container1 container2 container3".split() | New-AzureStorageContainer -Permission Container

This example creates multiple storage containers. It uses the Split method of the .NET String class and then passes the names on the pipeline.

Parameters

-Name

Specifies a name for the new container.

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

-Permission

Specifies the level of public access to this container. By default, the container and any blobs in it can be accessed only by the owner of the storage account. To grant anonymous users read permissions to a container and its blobs, you can set the container permissions to enable public access. Anonymous users can read blobs in a publicly available container without authenticating the request. The acceptable values for this parameter are:
- Container. Provides full read access to a container and its blobs. Clients can enumerate blobs in the container through anonymous request, but cannot enumerate containers in the storage account.

  • Blob. Provides read access to blob data throughout a container through anonymous request, but does not provide access to container data. Clients cannot enumerate blobs in the container by using anonymous request.
  • Off. Which restricts access to only the storage account owner.

Type:BlobContainerPublicAccessType
Aliases:PublicAccess
Required:False
Position:1
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False

-Context

Specifies a context for the new container.

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

-InformationVariable

Specifies an information variable.

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