Set Block Blob Content From Stream

Set-AzStorageBlobContent takes a file location to be uploaded to cloud. is there way I can pass a System.IO.Stream to a Block Blob in PowerShell?


  • I figured out how to. it is kind of simple and thanks to, https://microsoft.github.io/AzureTipsAndTricks/blog/tip76.html.

    In was able to extract the content of a zip file into Azure Storage block blob directly without having to extract the files locally. This below example can be enhanced to recursively upload all entries within a zip file.

    Import-Module -Name Az
    $ZipArchive = [System.IO.Compression.ZipFile]::OpenRead("C:\...\temp.zip");
    $ZipEntry = $ZipArchive.Entries[0]
    $DeflateStream = $ZipEntry.Open();
    $storageAccountName= 'storageAccountName' 
    $containerName= 'containerName'
    Get-AzSubscription | Select-Object -First 1 | Set-AzContext 
    $StorageAccount = Get-AzStorageAccount -ResourceGroupName ResourceGroupName  | Where-Object{$_.StorageAccountName -match $storageAccountName}
    $StorageContext = New-AzStorageContext -StorageAccountName $StorageAccount.StorageAccountName -StorageAccountKey (Get-AzStorageAccountKey -ResourceGroupName $StorageAccount.ResourceGroupName -Name $StorageAccount.StorageAccountName | select -First 1 ).Value
    $Container = Get-AzStorageContainer -Name $containerName -Context $StorageContext
    $BlockBlob = $Container.CloudBlobContainer.GetBlockBlobReference("Temp/temp.pdf")
