Updated: April 24, 2013

[This topic is part of the Microsoft Azure Storage Client Library 1.7, which has been deprecated. See Storage Client Library for the latest version.]

Represents the permissions for a container.

Namespace: Microsoft.WindowsAzure.StorageClient
Assembly: Microsoft.WindowsAzure.StorageClient (in Microsoft.WindowsAzure.StorageClient.dll)

Dim instance As BlobContainerPermissions

public class BlobContainerPermissions

The container's permissions encompass two types of access settings for the container:

  • The container's public access setting, represented by the PublicAccess property. The public access setting indicates whether the container and its blobs can be read via an anonymous request.

  • The container's access policies, represented by the SharedAccessPolicies property. This setting references a collection of shared access policies for the container. A shared access policy may be used to control the start time, expiry time, and permissions for one or more shared access signatures. A container can have up to 5 shared access policies. A shared access signature provides delegated access to the container's resources.

For more information on managing container permissions, see Managing Access to Containers and Blobs.


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