Blob Life cycle management for page blobs
Provide life cycle management feature for Page blobs too similar to the block blob.
Currently SQL server 2014 or older version support backing up data to page blobs only. Hence it would be good to have the page blob life cycle management policy on it. This will help in managing the deletion of page blobs on a timely basis.

This is still something that needs addressing. Many of our customers have SQL backups going to azure storage accounts and there is only Block and Append blob lifecycle management.

I really support this one. It would be good to have some visibility.
Please allow all types of blobs to be managed by the lifecycle, such as Page Blobs.
Allow the ability to run the rules against the Storage Account manually for testing.
MS, is there any plan to implement this anytime soon?
Why is Page vs Block even an issue to lifecycle management !?!

I have the same problem and would like that this option be available for page blobs.

I do have the same problem.
We backup our SQL data into a Storage Account Container and we cannot apply any lifecycle management rule here as it concerns Page Blobs.
Please take this into consideration.

Agreed, life cycle management does not apply for page blobs, and SQL URL backups (Even on newer versions) on Azure does not delete on a time basis.

I did not find any where this option to delete page blobs
Found out that it works with Append Blobs.
Life cycle management should be enabled for Append blobs too.
