    Hello Hanumant Soft - Dev,

    Thank you for posting your query here!

    To filter Azure Blob Storage by tags or metadata using Azure Identity in .NET, you can utilize blob index tags. Here’s how:

    Blob Index Tags:

    Blob index tags allow you to manage and find data based on custom tags or metadata associated with blobs. You can use them to filter blobs across your entire storage account or within specific containers.

    To get started, select your storage account in the Azure portal, navigate to the Containers option under Data storage, and choose the Blob Index tags filter button within the desired container.


    Your code must have authorized access to blob data through one of the following mechanisms:

    A security principal assigned an Azure RBAC role with the Microsoft.Storage/storageAccounts/blobServices/containers/blobs/filter/action action.

    Shared Access Signatures (SAS) with permission to find blobs by tags.

    For reference:

    Do let us know if you have any further queries. I’m happy to assist you further.
