Couchdrop is a cloud SCP, SFTP and Rsync server, which means files can be transferred using the SCP, SFTP or Rsync tool packaged with openssh on virtually any unix derivative or your favourite SFTP client.
Couchdrop supports integration with Microsoft Azure blob and file storage. This integration allows you to directly transfer files to and from Azure using SCP, SFTP and Rsync with Couchdrop. Azure can be configured in addition to Dropbox or other Storage Providers or as the primary storage for your Couchdrop Cloud SCP, SFTP and Rysnc server.
Link Azure with Couchdrop
Linking Microsoft Azure with Couchdrop requires an existing Microsoft Azure account, security keys and a file share in Azure.
Once you have an Azure file share ready to go, log into Couchdrop by visiting https://my.couchdrop.io.
Click on Storage on the left navigation menu
If you have not used Couchdrop yet, you will not see any Storage Buckets. You now need to create a new Storage Bucket for Azures. You can create as many storage buckets as desired, and associate different permissions and paths for each.
Click Add Storage and you will be presented with options to configure a range of storage buckets, for this article select Azure.
Here you need to specify a destination path, permission mode and bucket type. The path is what identifies this specific storage bucket when you are downloading or uploading files. For our example, we will leave it as "/".
Azure also requires the configuration of the following details:
- Azure Account Name
- Azure Secret Key
- Azure Share Name
For information on where to find these details, see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/common/storage-account-manage
Once configured, click Save Settings and the integration is complete. You can begin transferring files to and from Azure with Couchdrop.
