Blob Signature URI refresh RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I have questions.

    1-) I'm curious about Sas,in my ASP.Net project when I create sas uri in page load for my file downloading,  expire date is 15min,when the same user reload the page will be create a new Sas uri ? the old SAS URI was not expired but the user reload the page .

    Or in button click same scenario it doesn't matter..

    2.-) Why can I not add the IEnumerable<IListBlobItem> blobList in my VİEWSTATE ? I will save sas uri for 15min

    1. If the user hits expiry time, the link is no longer valid.

    To clarify: After the expiry time user was able to download the url?

    Start time. This is the time at which the SAS becomes valid. The start time for a shared access signature is optional. If a start time is omitted, the SAS is effective immediately. The start time must be expressed in UTC (Coordinated Universal Time), with a special UTC designator ("Z"), for example 1994-11-05T13:15:30Z.

    Expiry time. This is the time after which the SAS is no longer valid. Best practices recommend that you either specify an expiry time for a SAS, or associate it with a stored access policy. The expiry time must be expressed in UTC (Coordinated Universal Time), with a special UTC designator ("Z"), for example 1994-11-05T13:15:30Z

    One way that you can manage a shared access signature is to control its lifetime by setting the signed expiry field of the access policy. If you want to continue to grant a client access to the resource after the expiry time, you must issue a new signature. It’s recommended that you keep the lifetime of a shared access signature short. Before version 2012-02-12, a shared access signature not associated with a stored access policy could not have an active period that exceeded one hour.

    2.   IEnumerable cannot add to viewstate and couldn't be a datasource to gridview. IListBlobItem is an interface.The IEnumerable contains three type of blob items.


    So, I would suggest you could firstly check the type and convert to datatable or something else and then add it into ViewState.

  • First, thank you for your beautiful expression.I solved second problem..

    But I dont understand the expirying , think now I have a user and he his uplaoding 1GB file to in my container.

    Okey I hold my expiry date in my server cache and before 10 min I refresh my sas . But the user who upload 1GB file on the half his uploading the sas is expired what will happen to his uploading  ?

  • Since the authorization request has already occurred, the upload will continue.
