How do i integrate azure storage with my Azure web app with a lot of files that have to be visible by web browser?


  • Howdy! I have a small amount of experience with Azure storage accounts.

    I am writing a web app for online trainings. each course contains a plethora of files for users to access by their web browser, sort of like a mini web site for each of them. My clients that are developing the trainings need some user friendly way to upload all of this content.

    How might I approach this? I have uploaded individual files using Azure storage explorer 6, but I wouldn't want to ask users to use this tool to upload all of these files this way.

    Is there a better way? anyone else have run into something like this?

  • Hello,

    Have you tried Cloudberry Explorer?  

    It supports FTP.

    Hope this helps.

  • Hi Alberto,

    I installed Cloudberry, but having problems adding a new storage account to view.Its asking for my account and shared key. I cannot locate this information in the Azure portal under Properties or Access Control.

    Also, It looks like I cannot create subfolders in blob storage. Am I using the incorrect storage method?

    Thanks for the help

  • Path obfuscation at the moment, although I would prefer a better way. It would be great if I could set this up and then have my windows forms authentication allow me to unlock the content for that particular session.

  • Hello,

    Go to Go to Storage Accounts, click on the storage account you want to use with Cloudberry. After that, you will see a panel with a section saying “Settings” under that section click on Access Keys, then on the right side you will see the storage account name and the primary/secondary access keys (shared keys).

    Hope this helps.
