For example the following property should be used for a storage account called "testaccount":


You can obtain your access key from the Access keys in your storage account settings.


For more detailed instructions including screenshots refer to How to Configure Authentication with WASB blog post.

Next Steps

To protect your access key, we recommend that you use the credential provider framework to securely store and access your credentials. You may also protect the Azure credentials within an encrypted file.
