Cyberduck Help / Howto / Windows Azure Cloud Storage

Support for Windows Azure Cloud Storage is available in the current snapshot builds with the Azure connection profile or version 4.5 or later.

Connecting to Azure Cloud Storage

  • Download the Azure connection profile to enable Windows Azure Storage support.


Edit the hostname to connect to your account in the format <account>


You must obtain the login credentials (Account Name and Primary Access Key) from In the login prompt of Cyberduck upon connecting to Windows Azure you enter the Storage Account Name for the username and Primary Access Key for the password.

Access Control (ACL)

You can edit ACLs in File → Info (⌘-I) → Permissions. To make objects in a container publicly accessible, choose Everyone → READ. Note that this applies to all files in a container.


To create a new container in your account, browse to the root and choose File → New Folder... (⌘-N).


You can edit standard custom metadata. Choose File → Info → Metadata to edit custom headers.

Default metadata

Currently only possible using a hidden configuration option you can define default headers to be added for uploads. Multiple headers must be separated using a whitespace delimiter. Key and value of a header are seperated with =. For example if you want to add a HTTP header for Cache-Control and one named Creator you would set

defaults write ch.sudo.cyberduck azure.metadata.default "Cache-Control=public,max-age=86400 Creator=Cyberduck"

Shared Access Signature URLs

A private object stored in Azure Storage can be made publicly available for a limited time using a signed URL. The signed URL can be used by anyone to download the object, yet it includes a date and time after which the URL will no longer work. Copy the signed URL from Edit → Copy URL→ Signed URL.
