Is it possible to set permissions on CloudBlockBlob? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I would like to know if i can set permissions on CloudBlockBlob? from following given example, which I am deleting [soureBlockBlob]. The whole idea is to restrict it from Public access for any use. I won't like to delete, just restrict access ... is it possible, if yes, how? I need a running sample code plz.

                var blobs = storageAccount.CreateCloudBlobClient().ListBlobsWithPrefix(blobContainerName + "/" + sourceFolderName, requestOptions);
                foreach (var blob in blobs)
                    var sourceBlockBlob = blob as CloudBlockBlob;
                    Console.WriteLine(string.Format("Successfully deleted {0}", sourceBlockBlob.Name));

  • Hi,

    Try this:

        // Create a permission policy to set the public access setting for the container.
        BlobContainerPermissions containerPermissions = new BlobContainerPermissions();

        // The public access setting explicitly specifies that the container is private,
        // so that it can't be accessed anonymously.
        containerPermissions.PublicAccess = BlobContainerPublicAccessType.Off;

        //Set the permission policy on the container.
