Add trigger for Azure File Storage
The trigger should fire when there is a file added or modified on a azure fileshare.
You should be able to configure:
- Folder to check
- Pattern for filename (e.g.: *.csv)
Any news on this, as @sqlarchitect mentions we cannot do this using eventgrid, as the event type dosnt exist, we can only do this using blobs
This has been under review forever and is simply asinine.
This cannot be done with Event Grid today because Event Grid doesn't recognize "file system activity" on Azure File Shares.
Tobias Oort commented
The closing comment "Hi, this can be achieved today using Event Grid – this should achieve what you are looking for." is NOT correct - Event Grid doesn't trigger on Azure File Shares events. See https://stackoverflow.com/questions/61834755/azure-event-grid-works-on-file-share-on-blob-storage so please re-open this, dear Logic Apps Team.

This is critical functionality and it seems it is being completely ignored. We must be able to check for new files and run automatic when they arrive.

As many of us are forced to use the now deprecated sftp trigger to know when files have reached our File Storage instances, I very much hope that that support isn't removed before File Storage support is added!
very essential , pls consider
This is absolutely essential for us (large govt department). Cloud FS events need to be able to trigger custom business workflows.
How on Earth is it not supported?? It has been possible to do this in AWS since forever.

We have a request from a customer, where we initiate a batch job based on a new file upload auf einem Fileshare. Aktuell finden wir keine Standard Lösung und nutzen ein eigenes Script.

This is Important feature that supposed to be there with initial launch.
Can't believe that we have File based event trigger for SFTP but not Azure File Storage.! This is a big miss in my opinion.
Guys, please vote on it by clicking the button on top left of this page.!!
I need a storage that can be mounted to Windows server or pc that can trigger and action with logic apps.
I can only do this in blob but it cannot be mounted in windows.
Microsoft- isn’t Windows you own?
bump... MS - any response here? Logic apps and functions could greatly benefit from something this clean and simple.
I hope the storage includes the changes in a data lake (in a particular folder etc.). Extremely important!
Chris McEwen commented
I guess you could have a function that moves files from the file share to a blob storage account!
Mark Lyager Jensen commented
We have a lot of legacy systems that deliver files to shares where we pickup these files and process them before passing them on.
Usually this is done with BizTalk but the functionality could easily be replaced with Logic Apps and Azure File Storage (file share)... if only there was an option for a file share trigger.
When are we going to get this?
Alternatively - does anyone have a solution/pattern for a file watcher or similar?
Triggers for Azure FIle Storage are of paramount importance! Please put it in your development roadmap.
definitely need this functionality to trigger on file creation in storage for further processing.
sftp file transfer for instance and other processes should have this ability
i am new to logic apps. Is this funtionality working now. I need this functionlity to implement. If possible can you please suggest any alternate approach.
how to transfer file from file share to file storage using logic apps
yes, absolutely critical to make these a viable product
Scott Edwards commented
This is needed. I decrypt files to the Azure file storage for processing, and I have another Logic App that needs to trigger on that file. While I can use the On-Prem gateway in the processor Logic App as my Trigger, it would be helpful not to have to use the Gateway or a third party file store like Dropbox. Not having this trigger for the Azure File Storage seems like a miss to me.
