Azure BLOB storage

Configure your application to be able to upload recording files to your organizations Azure BLOB Cloud Storage.

Container Name

Azure Blob storage is Microsoft's object storage solution for the cloud. Blob storage is optimized to deal with large amounts of unstructured data, such as audio and video media files.

Storage Account

A container organizes a set of blobs, similar to a directory in a file system. A storage account provides a unique namespace in Azure where your data can be stored. A storage account can include an unlimited number of containers, and a container can store an unlimited number of blobs. For more information see Storage Account Overview .

For Auvious to be able to access your Azure Storage account your Azure administrator will first need to configure and create a new storage account. For information on creating a new storage account see Create an Azure Storage Account .


From within the new storage account your Azure administrator must now create a new container where your recording data will be stored, as depicted below.


Once your blob container has been successfully created and configured the name of the container must be entered in the Container Name property under the Auvious Storage Provider configuration page, as depicted below.


Connection String

The newly created storage account also contains Access Keys. These access keys are used to authenticate applications when making requests to this Azure storage account.


As depicted above each Access Key contains a Connection String. The Connection String includes the authorization information required for your application to access data in an Azure Storage account at runtime using Shared Key authorization.

For help on how to view your account's access keys and copy a connection string, see Manage storage account access keys .

For Auvious to remotely access you Azure storage account your Azure administrator will need to copy a Connection String specifically for this purpose.

Please enter the relevant Connection String property under the Auvious Storage Provider configuration page, as depicted below.


Review & Test

In the final step you can review and go back to make any necessary corrections.

When you are ready, you can test your configuration to ensure that Auvious can successfully access your storage provider.
