Number of Blob Containers returned exceeds result limit.


  • I get the message in the post title when I load my blobs in the server explorere for VS 2013 ultimate.

    I click on the Blob and in the properties panel (lower right) I try to push the sort butons (categorized / alphabetical) but nothing happens. 

    I have a blob that is just outside the limit that VS places on this and can't see it. 

    Is there anyway I can sort the blobs or search them or increase the view limit ? Please help this is kind of crazy that you can't sort the list or increase the limit.

    I've looked everywhere online and in the settings for VS. Thanks !

  • Hi,

    Have you tried using REST API, ListBlob to increase the maxresult returned the number of blobs?
    You could refer the following link for details:

    You could use the URI parameter "maxresults", It allows you to Specify the maximum number of blobs to return, including all BlobPrefix elements. If the request does not specify maxresults or specifies a value greater than 5,000, the server will return up to 5,000 items.
    Setting maxresults to a value less than or equal to zero results in error response code 400 (Bad Request).

    Hope this helps.
