Renaming a folder in Azure Power Shell RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Everyone,

    I have been searching a way to rename a directory inside a container in the VSTS build steps. There are some utilities like Powershell and Azure Powershell available. Does anyone have a script to do that?

  • Hi,

    Thank you for posting here!

    As blob storage does not support direct rename functionality, you'd need to copy each one to a new blob, and then delete the old one when the copy operation is complete. Renaming does no currently preserve snapshot data, renaming a large item or folder with lots of items may take a while. you can use Microsoft Azure Storage Explorer tool to change file name.
