Can't create standard blob storage account

Mahadev, Rakesh [HAEA] 60 Reputation points

Hello All,

I'm not getting the option to create standard blob storage account. Instead I have the option to create standard general purpose v2 and premium block blob, files and page blob storage accounts.

Is there any way to create standard blob storage account?

    Hi Rakesh,

    You can't create legacy blob storage account via the portal, but you can create it via PowerShell using Cloud Shell. Below is sample code (resource group needs to exist before running):

    New-AzStorageAccount -ResourceGroupName myresourcegroup -Name myblobstorageaccount -Location westus -SkuName Standard_LRS -Kind BlobStorage -AccessTier Hot

    Create a storage account
