Microsoft Azure Storage for WordPress


This WordPress plugin allows you to use Microsoft Azure Storage Service to host your media and uploads for your WordPress powered website. Microsoft Azure Storage is an effective way to infinitely scale storage of your site and leverage Azure’s global infrastructure.

For more details on Microsoft Azure Storage, please visit the Microsoft Azure website.

For more details on configuring a Microsoft Azure Storage account and on using the plugin with the Block Editor or Classic Editor, please visit the user guide.

Known Issues

Storage Account Versions

Storage accounts can be created via CLI, classic Azure portal, or the new Azure portal,
with varying results.

If a Storage account is created with the new Azure portal, authentication will fail,
resulting in the inability to view/add containers or files. Creating a Storage account
with the Azure CLI should allow the plugin to work with new Storage accounts.

Responsive Images in WordPress 4.4

Images uploaded to the Azure Storage service will not automatically receive responsive versions.
Images added through the WordPress Media Loader should get automatically converted to responsive
images when inserted into a post or page.
We are investigating options for full support of responsive images in the plugin.


  1. Upload the plugin files to the /wp-content/plugins/windows-azure-storage directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress.
  3. Use the Settings->Microsoft Azure screen to configure the plugin.

For multisites or to enforce Azure Blob Storage settings, you can define the following constants in wp-config.php:

  • MICROSOFT_AZURE_ACCOUNT_KEY – Account Primary Access Key
  • MICROSOFT_AZURE_CONTAINER – Azure Blob Container
  • MICROSOFT_AZURE_CNAME – Domain: must start with http(s)://
  • MICROSOFT_AZURE_USE_FOR_DEFAULT_UPLOAD – boolean (default false)
  • MICROSOFT_AZURE_OVERRIDE_CONTAINER_PATH – Override Container name in the Image URL , can be just «/»

See Settings->Microsoft Azure for more information.

There are 5 pages of reported issues for this plugin. Most of them without any answer. Uploading a file while enabled «Auto remove local files» shows infinity loading. Too bad. Azure is a great AWS S3 alternative. Without any maintained plugin for Wordpress. Shame.

Another quality plugin from the folks at 10up. I had used the S3 offloader from Delicious Brains for other projects, but the current client is using Azure. This plugin is about as one-click easy as it gets, and it works well.

This is nice plugin with easy setup (if you know what you are doing). If you setup Azure Storage Container with a CNAME, you will get lovely external storage for you uploads, where URLs will show as something else or so which is perfect solution for me.
