Azure Blob Storage - Static Website / SFTP

Matt Langley 1 Reputation point

Hi, I've signed up for the sFTP (Preview) addon and I've got it working to upload my data to a container I made, however I cannot change the static website from the $web directory.

When i try to add the sFTP user to the $web container, it says:

"The value '$web' is not allowed for property permissionScope.resourceName"`

How can I serve my custom container as a static website while uploading through sFTP? Or can I use another Azure service to pull the data out of the container to serve or even something to automatically move the data from my container to $web?

  1. Is it possible to allow an sFTP account to upload to $web?
  2. If 1 is no, how can I set a custom container to serve as a static website?

    From Limitations and known issues with SSH File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) support for Azure Blob Storage :

    Special containers such as $logs, $blobchangefeed, $root, $web aren't accessible via the SFTP endpoint.
