Overview

The Microsoft Azure implementation for MASV Cloud Connect joins our existing S3, BackblazeB2 and Google Cloud Storage integrations and requires a similar configuration process. The MASV integration with Microsoft Azure storage allows users to connect their MASV account to a container on their Azure account.

Access your Azure Cloud account

First, create a Shared Access Signature (SAS) URI on Azure portal with scoped

access.

1. Browse to Storage Accounts in Azure

2. Select the account you wish to use with MASV

3. Under Settings, select `Shared access signature`

4. `Allowed services` should have `Blob` selected (only)

5. `Allowed resource types` should have `Object` and `Container` selected

6. `Allowed permissions` should have `Read`, `Write`, `Delete`, `List`, `Add` and

`Create` selected

7. Start and expiry time should be from now until a time in the future - keep in

mind that once the SAS URI expires, any Cloud Connections in MASV that use it, will

not function until a new SAS URI is generated and pasted into the Cloud Connection

settings.

8. Allowed protocols should be HTTPS only - MASV does not transfer files over non-

secure URLs.

9. Preferred routing tier should be set to `Basic (default)`

10. Any signing key can be used

11. Click `Generate SAS and connection string`

12. Copy the URL provided under heading `Blob service SAS URL` and paste it into

the Cloud Connection settings

If you haven't already, you will also need to make sure you have a Container created. You do this by clicking on the Data Storage -> Containers page of the Azure dashboard to create and use the container (and you will use this container name with MASV too).

Configuring Azure WIth Your MASV Account

  1. Visit MASV Cloud Connect page from the left-hand menu.

  2. If you are using Cloud Connect for the first time, click Azure from the grid. You can also select Azure from the Add Connection > Add New drop-down menu.

  3. In the pop-up window, click Upload App Settings.

  4. Name your cloud connection under the Connection Name field and fill out all the necessary fields and then click on Connect .

  5. That's it! The service will be integrated into MASV and you'll be able to see it in the Cloud Connect section. You will now be able to link it to any Portal or have the ability to Send Package to Cloud from the Packages pages.
