We are having 4 containers in Azure Storage blob

1st container that holds data that expires after 7 days
2nd container that has data expired after 15 days
3rd containers that has data that expires after 1 month
4th container that has data that expires after 6months

So we want to have Different retention period for different containers , in same storage account. Is it possible ?

So should we go for different azure storage blobs or different containers in same storage blob can have different retention period times ?

    You can configure a container-level retention policy for between 1 and 146000 days.

    Here is link to Micrsooft site to configure retention for containers.
