Unable to delete blob with 0B size in logic app with Lease state as Leased

aarthi r 1 Reputation point

Facing issue while deleting the azure storage blob with 0 Byte size which has the lease state as "Leased". While creating the blob it automatically creates with the Leased state only when the size is 0, whereas when the size is more that 0 Bytes the state is "Available" and the deletion of blob is not an issue.
We are able to delete the 0 Byte file after a minute when the state changes to "Expired" but I have a scenario where the deletion should happen immediately.

Error obtained during deletion of blob
"status": 412,

"error": {
"message": "There is currently a lease on the blob and no lease ID was specified in the request."

    @aarthir-6538 Firstly, apologies for the delay in responding here and any inconvenience this issue may have caused.

    There is an alternate way to break a lease if you use (or download) Microsoft Azure Storage Explorer (a really wonderful tool to manage Azure Storage).

    You can browse to the Storage Account and find the relevant file and then select the Break Lease option.

    However Azure Blob API support breaking the lease


    The article has a Powershell script to unlock the lease of the blob files


    Additional information: You can also refer to this articles which gives you more idea on your scenario.

    Hope this helps!

    @aarthi r Login to Azure account with owner profile and try to access the containers & storage account.
    Delete the data from Azure platform if not data is not being deleted from mounted machine.
