    Default Connecting to Azure Storage

    Happy new year everyone!

    Hi all, I'm new here (and to Alpha in general) so please let me know if I am posting in the wrong place. I'm hoping that the Alpha hive mind can identify some newbie mistake I am making...

    I am trying to create a connection to an Azure storage account, however when I enter the details and click "Test Connection" in the Storage Connection String Builder I get the following message:
    storage_error.PNG

    Error opening connection - Unexpected exception
    Native error code: -1
    Native error text: The remote server returned an error: (400) Bad Request
    The remote server returned an error: (400) Bad Request

    I can connect using the same details in Storage Explorer
    storage_exlorer.png
    and from within a test program in Visual Studio.

    Any ideas?

    Default Re: Connecting to Azure Storage

    It turns out that the Alpha Storage Connection is not compatible with "Blob storage", and I should be using "General Purpose" storage.

    See here for a description of the different Azure storage account types: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azu...count-overview

    Problem is now solved!
