Setting up SFTP File Migration to Azure Storage Account

This guide assumes you are using a Linux SFTP server for receiving files, and then uploading those files into an Azure storage account.

Initial Setup

Install Azure CLI on the SFTP server with the following command:

curl -sL https://aka.ms/InstallAzureCLIDeb | sudo bash

Then login using an account with access to the storage account:

az login

Perform File Migration

The next step is actually sending the files over to a storage account. For this example, we’ll send all of the files in a particular folder to the storage account.

az storage blob upload-batch -d YOUR_CONTAINER --account-name STORAGE_ACCOUNT_NAME -s DIRECTORY

Once those files are moved over, move them into a processed/ directory:

sudo mv * /processed/
