(For a more detailed tutorial see


This plugin is available in the Jenkins plugin manager.
To install in Jenkins, go to Manage Jenkins | Manage Plugins | Available | Windows Azure Storage Plugin | Install.
Then restart Jenkins to complete the installation.


1. Select the storage account name to use from the drop-down control
2. Enter a name for the container. A new container will be created if it does not exist. Environment variables can also be referenced. For example: $JOB_NAME
3. Enter the list of artifacts to upload, following the Ant glob syntax. You may create mappings between groups of artifacts and the virtual directory structure for them to be put under in the blob storage using the "::" notation.
4. Optionally, specify the common virtual path under the container that the artifacts will be placed under. This string (followed by a slash '/' character) will follow the container name (after a slash) in the URL for each artifact. Any combination of characters can be used, but reserved URL characters must be properly escaped. Environment variables can also be referenced. For example: "$BUILD_ID/$BUILD_NUMBER/"

Environment variables can also be referenced, for example: $JOB_NAME
