Remove Suffix from filename in Azure data storage

Rasool, Bilal 20 Reputation points

Hi There!

I am trying to write files in Azure Data Storage (with shared key authentication method) by using Talend ETL tool.

File is saved on Azure with some suffix (don't know from where it came) that I didn't mention in my code.

How can I save file on Azure Data Storage with exact file name that I choose?

    Make sure you set the name correctly on the upload.

    Azure Storage does not change in any way the name you specify - so check the ETL tool you are using instead.

    @Rasool, Bilal Welcome to Microsoft Q&A Forum, Thank you for posting your query here!

    It sounds like you are experiencing an issue with saving files to Azure Data Storage using Talend ETL tool. The suffix that you are seeing may be added by the tool or by Azure Data Storage itself. To save a file with the exact file name that you choose, you can try the following steps:

    1. Check the configuration of your Talend ETL job to ensure that you are specifying the correct file name. Make sure that you are not appending any suffix to the file name in your code.
    2. Check the configuration of your Azure Data Storage account to ensure that there are no settings that are adding a suffix to the file name. You can do this by logging into the Azure portal and navigating to your storage account. Check the settings for the container where you are saving the file.

    If you are still seeing a suffix added to the file name, you can try renaming the file after it has been saved to Azure Data Storage. You can do this using the Azure Storage Explorer tool or by using the Azure Storage REST API.

    To remove the suffix from the file name in Azure Data Storage, you can try the following steps:

    1. Use the Azure Storage Explorer tool to navigate to the container where the file is stored.
    2. Right-click on the file and select "Rename".
    3. Remove the suffix from the file name and click "Save".

    Alternatively, you can use the Azure Storage REST API to rename the file. You can do this by sending a PUT request to the file with the new file name in the request header. The request should include the authentication credentials for your Azure Data Storage account.

    I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions.
