Sending files to Azure Blob Storage from BizTalk Server 2020

Until BizTalk 2016, there was no direct way to communicate with Azure Blob storage to send files. Hence, we had to use WCF-WebHttp adapter to send files to the blob storage. It also required us to write a custom pipeline component to strip the filename from the file path (example – “file.txt” from “c:\files\file.txt” ) before sending it to Azure Blob storage else the file name in Azure blob storage would end up being “c:\files\file.txt” instead of just “file.txt”. However, BizTalk Server 2020 comes in with a built in Azure Blob Storage adapter using which you can directly communicate with the blob storage. This also eliminates the need for a custom pipeline.
