Hi All,

I have a below requirement.

  1. My app which is in on-prem server will generate some reports in PDF
  2. PDF's need to store in some where in Azure by app e.g FolderX
  3. Azure function app will pickup these files from above Azure folder and generate summary report in pdf
  4. PDF generated by azure function app need to stored in another azure FolderY
  5. As soon as summary pdf drop in FolderY, another azure function app will send FolderY pdf file to Administrator group.

In above requirement, all looks ok but i am not sure how to create folder or Azure and manage files.
do i need to create File Share in storage, or blob storage or VM machine and how can access from web app and azure function app..

Please suggest...

    @HemantSudehely-0557 Firstly, apologies for the delay in responding here and any inconvenience this issue may have caused.

    I would recommend to use the Azure Blob Storage in this scenario. If you need to mount a drive than you can go for Azure files using SMB protocol.

    This article will explain How to upload blobs to container using .Net(v12SDK):

    Hope this helps!

    Kindly let us know if the above helps or you need further assistance on this issue.
