BlobContainerClient Class

  • java.lang.Object
    • com.azure.storage.blob.BlobContainerClient

public final class BlobContainerClient

Client to a container. It may only be instantiated through a BlobContainerClientBuilder or via the method getBlobContainerClient(String containerName). This class does not hold any state about a particular container but is instead a convenient way of sending off appropriate requests to the resource on the service. It may also be used to construct URLs to blobs.

This client contains operations on a container. Operations on a blob are available on BlobClient through getBlobClient(String blobName), and operations on the service are available on BlobServiceClient.

Please refer to the Azure Docs for more information on containers.

  • bar (isPrefix = false)

will return the following results when prefix="foo/":

  • foo/foo1 (isPrefix = false)
  • foo/foo2 (isPrefix = false)

Code Samples

ListBlobsOptions options = new ListBlobsOptions()
     .setPrefix("directoryName")
     .setDetails(new BlobListDetails()
         .setRetrieveDeletedBlobs(true)
         .setRetrieveSnapshots(true));

 client.listBlobsByHierarchy("/", options, timeout).forEach(blob ->
     System.out.printf("Name: %s, Directory? %b, Deleted? %b, Snapshot ID: %s%n",
         blob.getName(),
         blob.isPrefix(),
         blob.isDeleted(),
         blob.getSnapshot()));

Parameters:

delimiter - The delimiter for blob hierarchy, "/" for hierarchy based on directories
options - ListBlobsOptions. If iterating by page, the page size passed to byPage methods such as PagedIterable#iterableByPage(int) will be preferred over the value set on these options.
timeout - An optional timeout value beyond which a RuntimeException will be raised.

Returns:

A reactive response emitting the prefixes and blobs.

setAccessPolicy

public void setAccessPolicy(PublicAccessType accessType, List identifiers)

Sets the container's permissions. The permissions indicate whether blobs in a container may be accessed publicly. Note that, for each signed identifier, we will truncate the start and expiry times to the nearest second to ensure the time formatting is compatible with the service. For more information, see the Azure Docs.

Code Samples

BlobSignedIdentifier identifier = new BlobSignedIdentifier()
     .setId("name")
     .setAccessPolicy(new BlobAccessPolicy()
         .setStartsOn(OffsetDateTime.now())
         .setExpiresOn(OffsetDateTime.now().plusDays(7))
         .setPermissions("permissionString"));

 try {
     client.setAccessPolicy(PublicAccessType.CONTAINER, Collections.singletonList(identifier));
     System.out.printf("Set Access Policy completed %n");
 } catch (UnsupportedOperationException error) {
     System.out.printf("Set Access Policy completed %s%n", error);
 }

Parameters:

accessType - Specifies how the data in this container is available to the public. See the x-ms-blob-public-access header in the Azure Docs for more information. Pass null for no public access.
identifiers - A list of BlobSignedIdentifier objects that specify the permissions for the container. Please see here for more information. Passing null will clear all access policies.

setAccessPolicyWithResponse

public Response setAccessPolicyWithResponse(PublicAccessType accessType, List identifiers, BlobRequestConditions requestConditions, Duration timeout, Context context)

Sets the container's permissions. The permissions indicate whether blobs in a container may be accessed publicly. Note that, for each signed identifier, we will truncate the start and expiry times to the nearest second to ensure the time formatting is compatible with the service. For more information, see the Azure Docs.

Code Samples

BlobSignedIdentifier identifier = new BlobSignedIdentifier()
     .setId("name")
     .setAccessPolicy(new BlobAccessPolicy()
         .setStartsOn(OffsetDateTime.now())
         .setExpiresOn(OffsetDateTime.now().plusDays(7))
         .setPermissions("permissionString"));

 BlobRequestConditions requestConditions = new BlobRequestConditions()
     .setLeaseId(leaseId)
     .setIfUnmodifiedSince(OffsetDateTime.now().minusDays(3));

 Context context = new Context("Key", "Value");

 System.out.printf("Set access policy completed with status %d%n",
     client.setAccessPolicyWithResponse(PublicAccessType.CONTAINER,
         Collections.singletonList(identifier),
         requestConditions,
         timeout,
         context).getStatusCode());

Parameters:

accessType - Specifies how the data in this container is available to the public. See the x-ms-blob-public-access header in the Azure Docs for more information. Pass null for no public access.
identifiers - A list of BlobSignedIdentifier objects that specify the permissions for the container. Please see here for more information. Passing null will clear all access policies.
requestConditions - BlobRequestConditions
timeout - An optional timeout value beyond which a RuntimeException will be raised.
context - Additional context that is passed through the Http pipeline during the service call.

Returns:

A response containing status code and HTTP headers

setMetadata

public void setMetadata(Map metadata)

Sets the container's metadata. For more information, see the Azure Docs.

Code Samples

Map<String, String> metadata = Collections.singletonMap("metadata", "value");
 try {
     client.setMetadata(metadata);
     System.out.printf("Set metadata completed with status %n");
 } catch (UnsupportedOperationException error) {
     System.out.printf("Fail while setting metadata %n");
 }

Parameters:

metadata - Metadata to associate with the container. If there is leading or trailing whitespace in any metadata key or value, it must be removed or encoded.

setMetadataWithResponse

public Response setMetadataWithResponse(Map metadata, BlobRequestConditions requestConditions, Duration timeout, Context context)

Sets the container's metadata. For more information, see the Azure Docs.

Code Samples

Map<String, String> metadata = Collections.singletonMap("metadata", "value");
 BlobRequestConditions requestConditions = new BlobRequestConditions()
     .setLeaseId(leaseId)
     .setIfUnmodifiedSince(OffsetDateTime.now().minusDays(3));
 Context context = new Context("Key", "Value");

 System.out.printf("Set metadata completed with status %d%n",
     client.setMetadataWithResponse(metadata, requestConditions, timeout, context).getStatusCode());

Parameters:

metadata - Metadata to associate with the container. If there is leading or trailing whitespace in any metadata key or value, it must be removed or encoded.
requestConditions - BlobRequestConditions
timeout - An optional timeout value beyond which a RuntimeException will be raised.
context - Additional context that is passed through the Http pipeline during the service call.

Returns:

A response containing status code and HTTP headers
