How to download files from Azure storage account using Control-M

Filed under: Data Warehousing — Vincent Rainardi @ 8:46 am

Control-M has a dedicated Azure Blob Storage job: (link)

On the Action dropdown we can select Upload, Download or List. Upload means uploading a file from an on-prem folder to an Azure container, whilst Download means the reverse. List means getting the name of the files in an Azure container.

We can also copy a file from a container to another container, delete a file, create and delete a container. Just need to specify the appropriate action on the Action dropdown list.

Note that we must install Azure CLI 2.0 and include the Azure authentication parameters in the connection profile. Or authenticate the CLI.

Upload files to FTP server

Once the files are downloaded to a local folder, we can push it to an FTP server using Manage File Transfer job (MFT, link, link). Note that FiIle Transfer Server must be configured first.
