I am trying to set a schedule to remove blobs in the container after the blob created a day.

I tried to set up a rule in the lifecycle management as follow to schedule remove the blobs but failed:

  1. remove "test1(container)/f1(folder)/f2(folder)/t(blobs prefix)"
  2. remove blobs with blob index key "type=tt"

    Blob lifecycle policies are run one a day and it can take up to 24 hours after creating a policy for it to run for the first time. There is more information on this in our FAQ section.

    Hope this helps! If you have waited 24 hours and the policy is still not running please let me know and we can work with your more closely to see what might be causing issue.
