Azure File Storage connector

Adobe Experience Platform provides native connectivity for cloud providers like AWS, Google Cloud Platform, and Azure, allowing you to bring your data from these systems.

Cloud storage sources can bring your own data into Platform without the need to download, format, or upload. Ingested data can be formatted as XDM JSON, XDM Parquet, or delimited. Every step of the process is integrated into the Sources workflow. Platform allows you to bring in data from Azure File Storage through batches.

IP address allow list

A list of IP addresses must be added to an allow list prior to working with source connectors. Failing to add your region-specific IP addresses to your allow list may lead to errors or non-performance when using sources. See the IP address allow list page for more information.

IMPORTANT

The Azure File Storage source connector currently does not support same-region connectivity to Platform. This means that if your Azure instance is using the same network region as Platform, then a connection to Platform sources cannot be established. Currently, only cross-region connectivity is supported. Please contact your Adobe account manager for more information.

Naming constraints for files and directories

The following is a list of constraints you must account for when naming your cloud storage file or directory.

  • Directory and file component names cannot exceed 255 characters.
  • Directory and file names cannot end with a forward slash (/). If provided, it will be automatically removed.
  • The following reserved URL characters must be properly escaped: ! ' ( ) ; @ & = + $ , % # [ ]
  • The following characters are not allowed: " \ / : | < > * ?.
  • Illegal URL path characters not allowed. Code points like \uE000, while valid in NTFS filenames, are not valid Unicode characters. In addition, some ASCII or Unicode characters, like control characters (0x00 to 0x1F, \u0081, etc.), are also not allowed. For rules governing Unicode strings in HTTP/1.1 see RFC 2616, Section 2.2: Basic Rules and RFC 3987.
  • The following file names are not allowed: LPT1, LPT2, LPT3, LPT4, LPT5, LPT6, LPT7, LPT8, LPT9, COM1, COM2, COM3, COM4, COM5, COM6, COM7, COM8, COM9, PRN, AUX, NUL, CON, CLOCK$, dot character (.), and two dot characters (…).
