Azure Blob index tags now generally available
Published date: June 17, 2021
Prior to index tags, solutions that required the ability to quickly find specific objects in a blob container would need to keep a secondary catalog. Blob index tags provides a built in capability to add tags and then quickly query for or filter using this information (for example, StoreID == “123”). This provides a simpler solution without requiring a separate query system.
Today, we have made Blob index tags generally available. This includes the ability to set index tags both upon upload or after upload. You can utilize these indexes as part of lifecycle management that automates deletion and movement between tiers. An example would be a lifecycle rule to delete all blobs older than 180 days where Project == “Contoso”.
