    Our apologies for not updating this ask earlier. Renaming Blobs is on our backlog, but is unlikely to be released in the coming year. Today, you can use the “Copy Blob” API as a workaround.

    Using the Azure Files service you can address Azure Storage like a network share using the SMB2.1 protocol.  This enables usage of normal Windows API’s to rename files and directories.  You can get started with the Files service by visiting https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/storage-dotnet-how-to-use-files.

    For any further questions, or to discuss your specific scenario, send us an email at azurestoragefeedback@microsoft.com.

    My automation solution overwrites the older files (on nightly basis), we needed to change few files names, this lack of Rename functionality is unfortunate as if I were to rename the file-name at source the automation process will not overwrite the file in Azure File storage (it will duplicate it) which will propagate and affect the further systems where files are transferred (by the automation), this means I will need to change the automation code. Therefore, I'd highly recommend for the Rename feature to be included asap please.
