You can find detailed steps for the entire configuration on the How to use Data Stream guide.

In the Destination configurations:

  1. On the Connector dropdown menu, select Azure Blob Storage.
  2. On Storage Account, add the name of your storage account of your Azure Blob Storage. Example: mystorageaccount
  3. On Container Name, add the name of your Azure Blob Storage container. Example: log_container
  4. On Blob SAS Token, add the Blob SAS token of your Azure Blob Storage. Example: fd56e23e1f12efe
  5. Make sure the Active switch is on.
  6. Click the Save button.

After saving the configurations, your data will be streamed to the newly configured endpoint.

You can keep track of the calls made by Data Stream to Azure Blob on Real-Time Events. To do so, select Data Source > Data Stream and choose the filters options as you wish.
