  2. Allow AzCopy to login with ARC identity

    Currently, azcopy login --identity tries to only use the Azure Instance Metadata Service endpoint which does not work for ARC enabled machines as they use localhost. Azcopy login should have a way to login thru its identity endpoint (http://localhost:40342/metadata/identity/oauth2/token) instead of http://169.254.169.254/metadata/identity/oauth2/token

  3. azcopy jobs clean should allow retention period

    Currently 'azcopy jobs clean' command only supports the option to clean job logs with a specific status.
    I would like the option to clean job logs after a certain time period (e.g. all logs after 7 days).

  4. Linux friendly log format for AzCopy

    Currently AzCopy utility does not output logs in Linux friendly format and I use dos2unix command to convert logs (e.g. dos2unix -c mac transfer.log).

    This is not exactly working well especially when I want to check logs in real time (e.g. tail -f transfer.log).

    This suggestion is for AzCopy to either;

    • detect OS type and output logs accordingly

    OR;

    • add an option to support logging in Linux friendly format (e.g. --log-format=linux)

  5. File share directory deletion failed

    Actually what im trying to do is automate the file share deletion process through a azure pipeline. I have a file share named <>-share it has a directory named <> and inside that i have three directories named as tenants, user-stores, meta-servicee-store. What i need to achieve through my pipeline is delete these 3 folders. Since these 3 folders are non empty i cannot delete them simply. So I used

    ./azcopy rm 'https://<filesharename>.file.core.windows.net/<>-share/<>/tenants?SAN_TOKEN

    command to do the deletion. In the tenants directory, I have over 3000 non empty subdirectories. After some time delete oparation fails saying file not…

  6. BUG Report for AZCopy

    I have renamed the PST files in my AZCopy directory (because I couldn't delete the uploaded files).
    NOw, When I rerun AZCopy to upload a DIREXCTORY, it is STILL picking up on the OLD file names and saying it can't find the files.
    I'm only passing the directory in the commandline . . . .

    I have a work around but it's a bug worth fixing.
    N.B. I am pointing to a fast USB3.2 NVMe Drive.
    Call me if you wish.
    Thanks

  7. Enable AzCopy to copy data from one Azure Files storage account to another

    The current iteration of AzCopy (10.8.0) does not copy Azure Files data between storage accounts using a SAS token generated via the portal. The capability is described here, however, it does not function as described: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/common/storage-use-azcopy-files#copy-files-between-storage-accounts

    Using this process fails when you generate the source and target SAS tokens via the Azure Portal, or generate both tokens via PowerShell. The only way this works is when you generate the source token via Azure Portal, but generate the target token via PowerShell.

    The only difference between a SAS token generated on the portal and one generated with PowerShell is the api…

  8. azcopy sync to Azure Files

    AzCopy already has the ability to sync local storage to blob storage.

    It'd be really useful if it could also sync local storage to Azure Files Shares.

  9. Default options for AZCopy

    Please, make --preserve-owner --preserve-smb-info --preserve-smb-permissions default options. Running copy command with default option currently locks out users (and administrators) from accessing files on file shares.

  10. add support for sync --cache-control

    Right now we can easily sync a file system with azure blob storage but we cannot make it set appropriate cache control headers, the end result is that the stuff we just synced isn't invalidated by the browser and if we do it as separate storage transactions after the fact we will incur double the transaction costs.

    It would be preferable if we could specify a cache control value when we sync and that the sync command sets the cache control header value to the desired value after sync.

    For example,

    .\azcopy.exe `
    sync `
    "apps" `
    "$(TESSIN_AUTHZ_STORAGE_URL)/apps$(TESSIN_AUTHZ_STORAGE_SAS)" `
    --recursive=true

  12. Azcopy login only supports device code login, can azcopy support login with credential

    A customer sets an AD conditional access rule to allow only Windows/IOS device type, when using "azcopy login" with device code, the login request will fail because the device code approach did not contain any device type info.
    The customer raised a request to add feature in azcopy to login with credential. (Similar with Connect-AzAccount)

  13. Make it possible to login azopy with service principal client id and secret only

    Currently azopy requires an application to be able to access files. WHile it's understanble for blob storage, for network file shares it should be possible to login with client id and secret.

  14. Please support local <-> local source and destination for file sync

    I love the AzCopy tool and use it frequently to sync files between Windows 10 and Blob storage. Recently I wanted to sync a folder of files on Windows 10 to my external storage and discovered AzCopy does not support local to local copy. Is that by design?

  15. MD5 checks also on uploads, not only on downloads

    Maybe I am overly cautions, but I would like to have azcopy also check the MD5 hashes on upload, not only on download.

    I refer to the documentation here, https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/common/storage-use-azcopy-files#upload-files where they talk about MD5 only for download.

    It would give me peace of mind if

    • prior to upload, the local file's MD5 hash is calculated
    • the file is uploaded
    • the MD5 hash on the server is calculated
    • the upload fails if the hashes are not equal

    And, why not use SHA256 instead of MD5?

  16. Allow AzCopy support Socks proxy

    Today AzCopy can use an HTTPS proxy, which is good but not enough.

    In big companies, you can have 1 https proxy for the whole company, but several expressRoutes for each teams/entity. For example you can have a dedicated expressRoute to feed/consume ADLSGen2 and another for the other needs.

    In this case, there is no easy way to select the expressroute you want/need to use. Hence, an easy way is to deploy Socks proxies.

    But AzCopy does not allow passing a socks proxy as parameter.

  17. Distribute AzCopy for Linux compiled for ARM processors

    Currently AzCopy for Linux is only distributed for x64 processors. Since one of the obvious applications of AzCopy is backups, it would be useful to have a version which runs on ARM processors, so that it can be set up as a cronjob directly on an ARM-based NAS.

  20. AzCopy V10 - Add flag to switch off writing to on-prem event log

    Copy large files from an on prem server to azure blob storage, there are thousands of warning message appearing in the event log of the server.

    Please supply a flag so we can switch off the logging of messages to the event log. A large file copy can generate so many of these messages that it flushes out the log. The messages can anyway be captured to txt output in the command so it's a duplication.
