Upload Files🗒️ In Azure Blob Storage Using ASP.NET Core

In this article, we will discuss how to upload files in Azure Blob Storage using Asp.Net Core.

Today, in this article, we will discuss how to develop a web application to store uploaded files into the Azure Blob Storage. Now, as we all know, Blob Storage is a part of the Azure Storage. So, first, we will discuss some basic concept about Azure Storage and then, we will discuss how to store file data into the Azure Blob Storage.
 

Definition of Azure Storage

 
Microsoft provides different ways to store data or information in Azure. We can use different database types like Azure SQL Server, Azure Cosmos DB or Azure Table Storage. Also, we can use either Azure Queues or Event Hubs for storing and sending a message like Email, SMS etc. In the same way, we can use either Azure Files or Azure Blob Storage to store files in Azure. Normally Azure Storage contains four different data services. These four data services place together as a group and are named Azure Storage. Azure storage consists of Azure Blobs, Azure Files, Azure Queues, and Azure Tables. These four data storage services are always available in special consideration because they all are primitive and cloud-based storage services and can be used together in a same application. The below image shows all the elements of Azure Storage.

Storage Account

 
In Azure, Storage Account always acts as a container which consists of a multiple set of Azure Storage Service together. In Storage Account, only data services from the Azure Storage group can be included like Azure Blobs, Files, Queues and Tables. So, basically, it acts as a group which contains multiple data services of Azure Storage. The below image demonstrates the basic concept of Azure Storage Accounts.

Prerequisites

  1. Microsoft Visual Studio 2017
  2. Account in Azure Portal.
If you don’t have any existing Azure account, then you can create a free trial account in Azure portal using your email id. 
 

Create an Azure Storage Account

 
To create the Azure Storage Account in Azure Portal, first, you need to log in to the Azure Portal and then perform the below steps.
 
Step 1
 
Click on the Azure Storage Accounts option from the Resource Dashboard.

Step 3
 
Now, provide the related required information to create an Azure Storage account.

Step 4
 
In the above image, Storage Account Name means Account Name. Also, select Storage V2 options for availing the service of all four data services of Azure Storage Accounts.
 
Step 5
 
Now, click the "Review and Create" button.
 
Step 6
 
After the settings are validated, click "Create" to create the account.
 
Step 7
 
The account creation takes some time. Wait for the portal to display the notification telling that the deployment succeeded and click the notification.
 
Step 8
 
Once the deployment is succeeded, click "Go to resource" option to open Storage Account.
 
Step 9
 
Once Storage Account is created, click on Access Keys options of the left panel and copy the ConnectionString value. This value is needed to be provided in our web application so that we can upload files in Azure Blob Storage.

Create a Web Application using ASP.NET Core in Visual Studio

 
Step 1
 
Now, open Microsoft Visual Studio 2017 and click on File --> New --> Projects.

Step 3
 
In the Project Template box, select Web Application (Model-View-Controller) options and click on the OK button.
 
Step 4
 
Now a blank project solution is ready.
 
Step 5
 
First, open the App.Config file and store the connections string to this file which we already copied from the Azure portal. 
  1. {  
  2.   "Logging": {  
  3.     "LogLevel": {  
  4.       "Default""Warning"  
  5.     }  
  6.   },  
  7.   "AllowedHosts""*",  
  8.   "BlobConnections""",  
  9.   "ConnectionStrings": {  
  10.     "AccessKey""DefaultEndpointsProtocol=https;AccountName=testblobdump;AccountKey=ADSSADS222SSDbfOcGSuHbKnTlExh3kieXy6zwMZ/F3vDnOGT1uV5oy1KEYZ3ui6WFhayHC5tLkCA==;EndpointSuffix=core.windows.net"  
  11.   }  
  12. }  
Step 6
 
Now, add another Class Library Project for create the Service Layer.
 
Step 7
 
After adding the new projects, we need to install the below NuGet Packages to access Azure Storage account using Windows Azure Storage client driver.

Step 8
 
Now, add another class library project for Data Context and add a class called Products and define the Product model class as below.
  1. using System;  
  2. using System.Collections.Generic;  
  3. using System.ComponentModel.DataAnnotations;  
  4. using System.ComponentModel.DataAnnotations.Schema;  
  5. using System.Text;  
  6. using Microsoft.AspNetCore.Http;  
  7.   
  8. namespace DataContext.Models  
  9. {  
  10.     [Table("Product", Schema = "Core")]  
  11.     public class Product  
  12.     {  
  13.         public Product()  
  14.         {  
  15.             CreatedDate = DateTime.Now;  
  16.         }  
  17.   
  18.         [Key]  
  19.         public int ProductId { getset; }  
  20.   
  21.         [Required(ErrorMessage = "Please Enter Name")]  
  22.         [Column(TypeName = "varchar(50)")]  
  23.         public string Name { getset; }  
  24.   
  25.         public decimal UnitPrice { getset; }  
  26.   
  27.         [Required(ErrorMessage = "Please Enter Description")]  
  28.         [Column(TypeName = "varchar(500)")]  
  29.         public string Description { getset; }  
  30.   
  31.         [Column(TypeName = "varchar(50)")]  
  32.         public string ImageName { getset; }  
  33.   
  34.         [Column(TypeName = "varchar(250)")]  
  35.         public string ImagePath { getset; }  
  36.   
  37.         public DateTime CreatedDate { getset; }  
  38.   
  39.         public DateTime? UpdatedDate { getset; }  
  40.   
  41.         [NotMapped]  
  42.         public IFormFile File { getset; }  
  43.     }  
  44. }  
Step 9
 
Now, select the Service Layer Projects and Create a New Folder called AppConfig.
 
Step 10
 
Now, within this folder, add a new class file called AppConfiguration.cs where we will read the configuration file value by providing the key as below. 
  1. using Microsoft.Extensions.Configuration;  
  2. using System;  
  3. using System.Collections.Generic;  
  4. using System.IO;  
  5. using System.Text;  
  6.   
  7. namespace ServiceLayer.AppConfig  
  8. {  
  9.     public static class AppConfiguration  
  10.     {  
  11.         private static IConfiguration currentConfig;  
  12.   
  13.         public static void SetConfig(IConfiguration configuration)  
  14.         {  
  15.             currentConfig = configuration;  
  16.         }  
  17.   
  18.   
  19.         public static string GetConfiguration(string configKey)  
  20.         {  
  21.             try  
  22.             {  
  23.                 string connectionString = currentConfig.GetConnectionString(configKey);  
  24.                 return connectionString;  
  25.             }  
  26.             catch (Exception ex)  
  27.             {  
  28.                 throw (ex);  
  29.             }  
  30.             return "";  
  31.         }  
  32.   
  33.     }  
  34. }  
Step 11
 
Now, add another class called BlobStorageService.cs and the add the below code. This service is basically responsible to store the uploaded file byte contained in the Azure Blob Storage. When it will upload the file in blob storage, it first creates a container called Upload and then within the container create a logical folder with the current date and then within that logical folder original file will be stored. But in this case, we need to remember one thing very clearly that in Azure Blob Storage, there is no option for creating a folder. We can divide uploaded files logically in a date wise, month wise, or year wise sub grouping. This can be done with the help of the file name.
 
For example, suppose we provide a file name like this,
  1. String filename = “01-Jan-2019/abcwelcome.pdf”  
In this case, when this particular file is uploaded in Azure Blob Storage, then Azure creates a logical group named “01-Jan-2019” and then stores the file abcwelcome.pdf within that logical group. But, in normal view as from Azure portal, it will display just like folder file structure the  same as windows explorer.

  61.             return strFileName;  
  62.         }  
  63.   
  64.         private async Task<string> UploadFileToBlobAsync(string strFileName, byte[] fileData, string fileMimeType)  
  65.         {  
  66.             try

  93.     }  
  94. }  
Step 12
 
Now, go to the data context layer and create the data context layer for storing the file information in the SQL data base using Entity Framework concept.

Step 13
 
Now, go to the main projects; i.e., MVC Application projects.
 
Step 14
 
Select the Controller folder and add a new MVC Controller Name ProductsController.cs
 
Step 15
 
Now, within the controller class, write down the below code within the Index Method.
  1. public IActionResult Index()  
  2.         {  
  3.             return View(_context.ProductRepo.GetAll());  
  4.         }  
Step 16
 
Now, see a new view against the Index method by clicking the right mouse button. A new view has been added in the view folder. Now add the below code in the view file. 
  1. @model DataContext.Models.Product  
  2.   
  3. @{  
  4.     ViewData["Title"] = "Details";  
  5. }  
  6.   
  7. <h2>Details</h2>  
  8.   
  9. <div>

Step 17
 
Now, create a new method for creating in the ProductsController and add related view against that action method. 
  1. public IActionResult Create()  
  2.        {  
  3.            return View();  
  4.        }

  55.   
  56. @section Scripts {  
  57.     @{await Html.RenderPartialAsync("_ValidationScriptsPartial");}  
  58. }  
Step 18
 
Now, create an action method for saving the data and write down the below code.
  1. [HttpPost]  
  2.         [ValidateAntiForgeryToken]  
  3.         public IActionResult Create(Product product)  
  4.         {

  11.                 bool exists = Directory.Exists(uploads);  
  12.                 if (!exists)  
  13.                     Directory.CreateDirectory(uploads);  
  14.   
  15.                 var fileName = Path.GetFileName(product.File.FileName);  
  16.                 var fileStream = new FileStream(Path.Combine(uploads, product.File.FileName), FileMode.Create);  
  17.                 string mimeType = product.File.ContentType;  
  18.                 byte[] fileData = new byte[product.File.Length];  
  19.   
  20.                 BlobStorageService objBlobService = new BlobStorageService();  
  21.   
  22.                 product.ImagePath = objBlobService.UploadFileToBlob(product.File.FileName, fileData, mimeType);  
  23.                 #endregion  
  24.   
  25.                 _context.ProductRepo.Add(product);  
  26.                 _context.SaveChanges();  
  27.                 return RedirectToAction(nameof(Index));  
  28.             }  
  29.             return View(product);  
  30.         }  
Step 19
 
Now, run the application and try to insert a new record from the application.
