Azure Blob Storage

This page contains the setup guide and reference information for the Azure Blob Storage source connector.


Cloud storage may incur egress costs. Egress refers to data that is transferred out of the cloud storage system, such as when you download files or access them from a different location. For more information, see the Azure Blob Storage pricing guide.

Setup guide

Step 1: Set up Azure Blob Storage

  • Create a storage account with the permissions details

Step 2: Set up the Azure Blob Storage connector in Airbyte

  1. Create a new Azure Blob Storage source with a suitable name.
  2. Set container appropriately. This will be the name of the container where the blobs are located.
  3. If you are only interested in blobs containing some prefix in the container set the blobs prefix property
  4. Set schema inference limit if you want to limit the number of blobs being considered for constructing the schema
  5. Choose the format corresponding to the format of your files.

Full Refresh SyncYes
