Azure Blob Storage DataBus will remove the Azure storage blobs used for physical attachments after the message is processed if the
TimeToBeReceived value is specified. When this value isn't provided, the physical attachments will not be removed.
Discarding old Azure DataBus attachments can be done in one of the following ways:
- Using the built-in method (enabled by default)
- Using an Azure Durable Function
- Using the Blob Lifecycle Management policy
Specify a value for the
TimeToBeReceived property. For more details on how to specify this, see Discarding Old Messages.
0. In versions 3 and above built-in cleanup is disabled by default.
Review the sample to see how to use a durable function to clean up attachments.
Attachment blobs can be cleaned up using the Blob Storage Lifecycle feature. This method allows configuring a single policy for all DataBus-related blobs. Those blobs can be either deleted or archived. The policy does not require custom code and is deployed directly to the storage account. This feature can only be used on GPv2 and Blob storage accounts, not on GPv1 accounts.
The following extension methods are available for changing the behavior of
var dataBus = endpointConfiguration.UseDataBus<AzureDataBus>(); dataBus.ConnectionString(azureStorageConnectionString); dataBus.Container(containerName); dataBus.BasePath(basePathWithinContainer); dataBus.BlockSize(blockSize); dataBus.DefaultTTL(timeToLiveInSeconds); dataBus.MaxRetries(maxNumberOfRetryAttempts); dataBus.NumberOfIOThreads(numberOfIoThreads); dataBus.BackOffInterval(backOffIntervalBetweenRetriesInSecs); dataBus.CleanupInterval(cleanupIntervalInMilSecs);
0 will disable blob cleanup.
var dataBus = endpointConfiguration.UseDataBus<AzureDataBus>(); dataBus.CleanupInterval(0);
