Customer Hosted Storage Environment

To use Azure Blob as your storage environment to backup your metadata and data objects, you need to configure it in the Vault application first.

  1. Head to the Backup Environment tab under the Settings module.
  2. Select Azure Blob as the Storage Type.
  3. Enter the Label Name of your choice. 
    Important Notes
    A blob name must conform to the following naming rules
    • A blob name can contain any combination of characters. 
    • A blob name must be at least one character long and cannot be more than 1,024 characters long, for blobs in Azure Storage. 
    • The Azure Storage emulator supports blob names up to 256 characters long. 
    • Blob names are case-sensitive. 
    • Reserved URL characters must be properly escaped. 
    • The number of path segments comprising the blob name cannot exceed 254. A path segment is a string between consecutive delimiter characters (e.g., the forward slash '/') that corresponds to the name of a virtual directory. 
    • Avoid blob names that end with a dot (.), a forward slash (/), or a sequence or combination of the two. No path segments should end with a dot (.).
  4. Enter your Azure storage Account Name. To create a new storage account, do refer to the following article: Create Storage Account
  5. Next, enter the Access Key for the above-selected storage account. For every storage account, you get two keys - primary and secondary. Specify either. You have two so you can give one out to someone (such as giving the secondary key to a 3rd-party monitoring company) and revoke it by changing the key, without impacting you (assuming you're using the primary key for yourself).Access Key
  6. Click on Save Settings.
