As part of the series of product updates on AgilePoint NX v9.0 release, the next one I would like to share is Microsoft Azure Blob Storage, which is part of the Azure family of cloud services.
Azure Blob Storage is a cloud service from Microsoft that provides object storage solution. It can securely scale to multi-petabytes and can be used for various workload use cases such as video files, data lakes, HPC, ML, data archives and more.
AgilePoint NX process designer now provides the following new process activities:
- Create Container
- Delete Blob
- Delete Container
- Get Blob Information
- Get Blob Metadata
- Get Container Information
- Get Container Metadata
- Set Blob Metadata
- Set Container Metadata
Additionally, Azure Blob storage support has been added to the Document Transfer activity which handles files move, copy, upload and downlead operations in addition to the actions mentioned above.
Similarly, the eForms file upload now supports Azure Blob Storage as a document repository for natively uploading any form attachments directly to Azure storage.
Let’s see these features in action in the video next.
Note: Please note that this video is recorded while this feature is in beta version. Some of the labels and icons might change by the time it goes GA but the general concept of configuring these activities would remain the same.
