Azure Storage

The instructions here work for setting up the following Azure Storage types as Targets:

  • Azure Blobs
  • Azure Tables
  • Azure Queues

To set up Azure Storage as a Target:

  1. Get Azure Account Access Keys
  2. Set up Azure as a Target location

To scan specific paths in an Azure Storage Target, see Edit Azure Storage Target Path.

General Requirements

  • Proxy Agent host with direct Internet access.
  • Cloud service-specific access keys.

Get Azure Account Access keys

  1. Log into your Azure account
  2. Go to All resources > [Storage account], and under Settings, click on Access keys.
  3. Note down key1 and key2 which are your primary and secondary access keys respectively. Use the active access key to connect ER2 to your Azure Storage account.

Set up Azure as a Target location

  1. From the New Search page, Add Targets.
  2. In the Select Target Type dialog box, select one of the following Azure Storage types:
    • Azure Blobs
    • Azure Queue
    • Azure Table
  3. Fill in the following fields:

    Field Description
    Azure Account Name Enter your Azure account name.
    Credential Label Enter a descriptive label for the credential set.
    Username Enter your Azure Storage account name.
    Password Enter either key1 or key2. See Get Azure Account Access Keys for more information.
    Agent to act as proxy host Select a Proxy Agent host with direct Internet access.
    Recommended Least Privilege User Approach

    To reduce the risk of data loss or privileged account abuse, the Target credentials provided for the intended Target should only be granted read-only access to the exact resources and data that require scanning. Never grant full user access privileges or unrestricted data access to any application if it is not required.

  4. Click Test. If ER2 can connect to the Target, the button changes to a Commit button.
  5. Click Commit to add the Target.

  1. Set up Azure as a Target location.
