Choose the way to get Microsoft Azure containers:
Select Custom roots and, in the Container field, specify the name of the container or the path to a directory in the container. You can specify multiple names or paths by separating them with a comma.
Select All containers in the account. You can then use the container filter to show only containers with particular names.
Optionally, you can set up:
Per project: select to enable these connection settings only for the current project. Deselect it if you want this connection to be visible in other projects.
Enable connection: deselect if you want to restrict using this connection. By default, the newly created connections are enabled.
Once you fill in the settings, click Test connection to ensure that all configuration parameters are correct. Then click OK.
Once you have established a connection, you can view the storage and work with data files in it.
