Setting the user defined metadata using C++ Azure SDK APIs RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Is there a way to set the user defined metadata when uploading a blob using C++ Azure SDK APIs? I tried looking around the cloud_block_blob (http://azure.github.io/azure-storage-cpp/classazure_1_1storage_1_1cloud__block__blob.html) class but couldn't find a way to do so.

  • Hello markovmon,

    You would need to do something like:

    blob.metadata()[U("key")] = U("value");

    blob.upload_metadata(); // Or one or its overloads

    Hope this helps,

  • Sriprasad's method is correct.  cloud_blob::metadata is an unordered map for custom metadata.  Please note upload_metadata() is not an upsert operation.  If a "key-value" pair is not in the blob metadata, upload_metadata() will remove the pair from service.
