Proxy setting with Azure connection


  • Is there a way I can use proxy settings with an Azure connection ?

    I am using a C# ASP.NET Web api, that is used to connect to Azure and stream files to a container.

  • Hi RoshDsa,

    Whatever proxy setting gets your clients connected to the https endpoint of the Azure storage services will do. Are you having issues connecting to Azure storage when uploading files?

    For Azure storage there is no special connection type, it's just HTTP to and from a public RESTful Web API. 

    Things are a little bit different when using ExpressRoute, which is a connection a Azure data centers that don't pass the public internet but use dedicated lines directly into Azure (via a service provider).

  • How do I specify the proxy settings ? There is no option in the connection settings for Azure connection. 

    To get to anything outside my intranet I need to use a proxy.

  • Hello RoshDsa,

    To specify a proxy, add the DevelopmentStorageProxyUri option to the connection string, and set its value to the proxy URI.
