    Thanks for reaching Microsoft Q&A Team.

    I would like to inform you that you can only define up to 100 rules in a policy for Azure storage Blob Lifecycle management. Please check the following article for more information.

    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/blobs/lifecycle-management-overview#lifecycle-management-policy-definition

    We recommend you to create a Lifecyle management policy with less than 100 rules and test the result.
