Sort order on Find Blobs by Tag operation

Jordan Hariel 41 Reputation points

Is there any guarantee on the sort order for the Find Blobs by Tag operation? I can't find anything explicit in the documentation. The List operation, I believe, explicitly says that blobs are returned in alphabetical order, but is there any such guarantee on the Find Blobs by Tag? When I use the .NET API, it seems to be alphabetical based on the name most of the time, but there are occasions when it does not get returned this way. Azure Storage Explorer consistently returns them in alphabetical order.

I posted this question in the issues for the Azure Docs GitHub, but they referred me here. Any help would be much appreciated!

    @Jordan Hariel Thanks for reaching out to Microsoft Q&A.

    I do not believe that the order is guaranteed. I gave a query in Powershell and did not see any order-
