View your Azure Blob storage accounts

After you install a Connector in Azure, BlueXP can automatically discover information about the Azure storage accounts that reside in the Azure Subscriptions where the Connector is installed. An Azure Blob working environment is added to the Canvas so you can view this information.

You can see details about your Azure storage accounts, including the location, resource group, used capacity, and more. These accounts can be used as destinations for BlueXP backup and recovery, BlueXP tiering, or BlueXP copy and sync operations.

  1. Install a Connector in the Azure account where you want to view your Azure Blob storage accounts.

  2. From the navigation menu, select Storage > Canvas.

    You should automatically see an Azure Blob Storage working environment shortly after.
