Gets or sets the public access setting for the container. Namespace: Microsoft.WindowsAzure.StorageClient
Assembly: Microsoft.WindowsAzure.StorageClient (in Microsoft.WindowsAzure.StorageClient.dll)
The public access setting indicates whether the container and its blobs can be read via an anonymous request.
The BlobContainerPublicAccessType enumeration provides three levels of anonymous read access: Off, which prevents anonymous access; Blob, which permits anonymous read access to blob resources, but not to container metadata or to the list of blobs in the container; and Container, which permits anonymous read access to blob resources, containter metadata, and the list of blobs in the container.
For more information on managing anonymous access to Blob service resources, see Setting Access Control for Containers.
