    Azure blob storage: Keep old links


    Has anyone figured out a way to keep old links on Azure Blob storage when you rewrite a media file on Umbraco Cloud?

    For example old file like this: /media/3247/lfaselectedlist_en.pdf

    Is getting changed to this: /media/8d8915a226f3c26/lfaselectedlist_en.pdf

    Some of our users rely on these URLs not changing. Any help appreciated! We did have the code that kept those links unchanged on standard Media file system but it isnt working on Blob storage. Thank you! Genc

    Hi all,

    A quick update on this, got it sorted out thx to Umbraco Support.

    Here is how to fix:



    And, if you are compiling it in Core:

    using Umbraco.Cloud.StorageProviders.AzureBlob;

    Before your custom method. So your whole method looks like this:

    [RuntimeLevel(MinLevel = RuntimeLevel.Run)]
    public class MyComposer : IUserComposer
        public void Compose(Composition composition)
            composition.RegisterUnique<IMediaPathScheme, OriginalMediaPathScheme>();

    That's it! Your old links will be kept on Azure Blob Storage. Thx.
