Property Value

The blob's ETag value.

The ETag value is an identifier assigned to the blob by the Blob service. It is updated on write operations to the blob. It may be used to perform operations conditionally, providing concurrency control and improved efficiency.

The IfMatch and IfNoneMatch methods take an ETag value and return an AccessCondition that may be specified on the request.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
