A plugin for uploading build artifacts to, or downloading build dependencies from, Microsoft Azure Blob storage.
Note: Once you upgrade to 0.3.3+ successfully, it's recommended not to downgrade, it will break builds.
(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.


At least one Azure storage account must be configured in the global configuration before the plugin can be used in build steps. To add a storage account, go to Manage Jenkins | Configure System | Microsoft Azure Storage Account Configuration and fill out the needed information.

Post-build actions

Upload artifacts to Azure

For a more detailed tutorial see:

The `Upload artifacts to Azure` post-build step uploads a build artifact generated by your build to Azure Blob storage.

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/"

Build actions

Download from Azure Blob storage

The `Download from Azure blob storage’ build step downloads blob contents from Azure blob storage.

1. Select the storage account name to use from the drop-down control
2. Select 'Download From Container' or 'Download artifact from build'.

3. Enter the name of the blob to download. You may also use the wild card "*" at the end to select multiple blob downloads sharing the same prefix, for example: project
4. Optionally, enter the target download path. If not specified, the files will be downloaded into the job's work-space.
Environment variables can also be referenced, for example: $JOB_NAME
