I am facing invalid metadata exception while trying to set metadata to a blob. The metadata contains special character like ü as the value which is causing the issue. Is there any work around for this?

    @Deepak N S Thank you for reaching out to Microsoft Q&A. I understand that you are having questions regarding metadata exception while trying to set it for Azure Blob.

    Please note that- Beginning with version 2009-09-19, metadata names must adhere to the naming rules for C# identifiers. This goes for both Portal and SDK. Please refer to -

    There is no workaround for this at the moment. Please let us know if you have any more questions and we will be glad to assist you further. Thank you!
