Using wildcards with the Azure CLI datalake store filesystem import command RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I need to copy files to ADL using Azure CLI, I can copy one file at a time but I can not figure out the correct syntax for copying multiple files using wildcards. Is it possible to use wildcards to copy multiple files with the Azure CLI?

    best regards

  • Hi Jorgen,

    Currently, wildcards are not supported in Azure CLI for Data Lake Store.

    To upload or download multiple files, you will need to issue the

    azure datalake store filesystem import


    azure datalake store filesystem export

    command for each file, individually.
