Azure Storage Account List

Updated: January 16, 2015

Azure storage accounts enable download locations to be used for your JDK, application server, and arbitrary components, as well as for storing state when using caching. Eclipse maintains a list of known storage accounts that are available to your projects in your Eclipse workspace. To open the Storage Accounts dialog, which is used to manage that list, within Eclipse, click Window, click Preferences, expand Azure, and then click Storage Accounts.

The following shows the Storage Accounts dialog.

This dialog can also be opened from an Accounts link on dialog boxes that use storage accounts, such as the following:

  • The JDK tab of the Server Configuration dialog.

  • The Server tab of the Server Configuration dialog.

  • The Add Component dialog.

  • The Caching properties dialog.

  1. Within the Storage Accounts dialog, click Import from PUBLISH-SETTINGS file.

  2. [Skip this step if you have already saved a publish settings file to your local machine.] In the Import Subscription Information dialog, click Download PUBLISH-SETTINGS File. If you are not yet logged into your Azure account, you will be prompted to log in. Then you’ll be prompted to save an Azure publish settings file. (You can ignore the resulting instructions shown on the logon pages – they are provided by the Azure portal and are intended for Visual Studio users.) Save it to your local machine.

  3. Still in the Import Subscription Information dialog, click the Browse button, select the publish settings file that you saved locally previously, and then click Open.

  4. Click OK to close the Import Subscription Information dialog.

  1. Within the Storage Accounts dialog, click Add.

  2. Within the Add Storage Account dialog, click New.

  3. Within the New Storage Account dialog, specify values for the following:

    1. Storage account name.

    2. Location of the storage account.

    3. Description of the storage account.

    4. The subscription to which the storage account belongs.

  4. Click OK to close the New Storage Account dialog.

It may take several minutes for your storage account to be created. After it is created, click OK to close the Add Storage Account dialog, and your new storage account will be added to the list of available storage accounts.

  1. If you do not already have a Azure storage account, create one by following the steps listed in the To create a new storage account section above. (Alternatively, you can create a new storage account at the Azure Management Portal.)

  2. Within the Storage Accounts dialog, click Add.

  3. Within the Add Storage Account dialog, enter values for Name and Access Key. The account name and access key must be for an existing Azure storage account. Use the Storage section of the Azure Management Portal portal to view your storage account names and keys.

    Your Add Storage Account dialog will look similar to the following.

    Windows Azure Add Storage Account dialog
  4. Click OK to close the Add Storage Account dialog.

  1. Within the Storage Accounts dialog, click the storage account that you want to edit and then click Edit.

  2. Within the Edit Storage Account Access Key dialog, modify the Access Key value.

  3. Click OK to close the Edit Storage Account Access Key dialog.

noteNote
Removing the storage account through the Storage Accounts dialog only removes it from the list of storage accounts viewable within Eclipse. It does not remove the storage account from your Azure subscription. Additionally, the storage account could appear again in your list after Eclipse reloads the details of your subscription.

  1. Within the Storage Accounts dialog, click the storage account that you want to edit and then click Remove.

  2. Click OK when prompted to remove the storage account.
