Basic settings

Property Type

Select the way the connection details will be set.

  • Built-In: The connection details will be set locally for this component. You need to specify the values for all related connection properties manually.

  • Repository: The connection details stored centrally in Repository > Metadata will be reused by this component. You need to click the [...] button next to it and in the pop-up Repository Content dialog box, select the connection details to be reused, and all related connection properties will be automatically filled in.

Account Name

Enter the name of the storage account you need to access. A storage account name can be found in the Manage Access Keys dashboard of the Microsoft Azure Storage system to be used.

Account Key

Enter the key associated with the storage account you need to access. Two keys are available for each account and by default, either of them can be used for this access.


Select the protocol for this connection to be created.

Use Azure Shared Access Signature

Select this check box to use a shared access signature (SAS) to access the storage resources without need for the account key. For more information, see Using Shared Access Signatures (SAS).

In the Azure Shared Access Signature field displayed, enter your account SAS URL between double quotation marks. You can get the SAS URL for each allowed service on Microsoft Azure portal after generating SAS. The SAS URL format is https://<$storagename>.<$service>.core.windows.net/<$sastoken>, where <$storagename> is the storage account name, <$service> is the allowed service name (blob, file, queue or table), and <$sastoken> is the SAS token value. For more information, see Constructing the Account SAS URI.

Note that the SAS has valid period, you can set the start time at which the SAS becomes valid and the expiry time after which the SAS is no longer valid when generating it, and you need to make sure your SAS is still valid when running your Job.
