How to pass file path from Azure Storage into your Azure stored procedure

Atul Kaushal 1 Reputation point

I have written a stored procedure that reads data from csv file and put it into multiple Postgres tables. It requires file path as a parameter and locally it works perfectly.

Call myProcedure('c:\file.csv'); // this works fine locally.

I have to make it work on Azure. I have created required tables and procedure on Azure Postgres. I have also written an azure function in Java which is connecting to database successfully. Now I need to take the CSV file from Azure Storage and pass it to stored procedure and execute it. The problem is that the path from Azure storage(SMB) is a URL(starts with https://...) whereas procedure expects path in Unix or Windows format. Is there a way I can make it work?

Call myProcedure('https://AzureURL/file.csv'); //doesn't work.
Any pointers will be helpful.
