storage account

Hi Everyone, I have a storage account with default access tier as Hot, I have a scenario like I have multiple files in my container with different access tiers like Hot and Cool. My main Question is like how can I move the files only with access tier as Cool to another container or another storage account. Is there any way for doing that either Manual process or any automatic way to do it.

    @Mahesh Vempati Welcome to Microsoft Q&A platform, Thank you for posting your query!

    It's not possible for now, you need to move the data to Hot tier and then you can move the data to different account later you change the tier to cool .

    You move using Azure Storage Explorer and Azcopy tool to different account or container

    Use Azure Data Box or Azure Data Box Heavy to send data to appropriate Azure Storage blob tier

    Additional information: Using lifecycle management to change tier for an entire container with a policy set to 1 day after last modification can take up to 48 hours for some blobs. Lifecycle runs at least once a day so the policy could be set right after it just finished running. So the policy may not run until another 0 < x < 24 hours. If any blobs in the containers are less than 1 day old at the next time lifecycle runs, they will be skipped for the following day.
    If using lifecycle and you’re okay with waiting up to 24 hours to change the blob tiers, you should set the policy to be 0 days after last modification.

    Refer here for detailed information Access tiers for Azure Blob Storage - hot, cool, and archive

    Hope this helps!

    Good Morning.

    I am using the APP Service linux.

    My JAVA application allows the user to upload files.

    Using my application on a VM with tomcat installed I configure the application to save the files that users upload to the folder C: / my application / upload

    My question is how I do so that the App Service Linux can also do this.

    I thought about using a storage account but I haven't been able to integrate the two yet.

    How can I define where the application will save files when the user uploads?
