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 email@example.com.
Thank you for your feedback. We would like to get more feedback about this item before we prioritize. Is the ask here to replicate a storage account on-demand ? Or have a mechanism to always keep two or more storage accounts in sync ?
Meanwhile, to unblock some of our users we have published a sample that copies blobs from an account to another account: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/scripts/storage-common-transfer-between-storage-accounts?toc=%2fpowershell%2fmodule%2ftoc.jsonAndrew commented
Need this for creating scheduled copies of a production storage account for staging purposes.
