Setting Azure Blob Storage as a Target

  1. Navigate to the Target tab in your Source to Target River.
  2. Select Azure Blob Storage.
  3. You will be automatically redirected to the connection form; for more information, see our documentation.
  4. Enter you Bucket (Container ) Name.
  5. Enter the FileZone path to your storage Container where Rivery will send the data files.
  6. Set the period partition timeframe for a FileZone folder.
    Note: You can instruct Rivery to divide the data according to the data insertion day, the Day/Hour, or the Day/Hour/Minute. This means that Rivery will produce data files from your sources under folders that correspond to the correct partition you've selected.
  7. Any Source to Target River can now send data to your Container.
