Retirement notice: The Azure Storage PHP client libraries will be retired on 17 March 2024

Published date: 17 March, 2023

On 17 March 2024, we will retire the Azure Storage PHP client libraries. Customers using the Azure Storage PHP client libraries can call the Azure Storage REST API directly.

The Azure Storage PHP client libraries were previously in Community Support and will remain in Community Support until their retirement date. Community Support is defined as:

“SDK will no longer receive updates from Microsoft unless otherwise specified in the separate customer agreement. The package will remain available via public package managers and the GitHub repo, which can be maintained by the community.” (see Azure SDK lifecycle and support policy for more information)

Although the older client libraries can still be used beyond 13 March 2023, they will no longer receive updates from Microsoft. If you prefer not to transition to the Azure Storage REST API directly, source code for the current Azure Storage PHP client libraries is available on GitHub as open source. You can continue to code and apply your own fixes as required.

Recommended action

Support for the Azure Storage PHP client libraries is ending on 17 March 2024. Source code for the client libraries will remain open source. You can call the Azure Storage REST API directly or continue to directly code and apply your own fixes to the existing client libraries as required or continue to code and apply your own fixes to the existing client libraries as required
