How to – Access Dataverse environment storage using SAS Token


We can access our environment’s storage using a SAS token. 

Download – Azure Storage Explorerhttps://azure.microsoft.com/features/storage-explorer/#overview

Select Connect to Azure resources option

Select ADLS Gen2 container or directory for the Azure storage type.

Select the Shared access signature URL for the connection

To get the SAS URLhttps://[ContainerURL]/CDS?[SASToken],

we need ContainerURL and SASToken.

To get Container URL use the below link –

ContainerURL = <a href="https:///api/data/v9.1/datalakefolders”>https://&lt;EnvironmentURL>/api/data/v9.1/datalakefolders

In our case – https://mycrm2022.crm.dynamics.com/api/data/v9.1/datalakefolders

The containerendpoint = https://aeth2b4c5907361d483c9641.dfs.core.windows.net/aeth-b986098f-1315-45cc-b8e6-61c5a1a1631a

Copy the value of containerendpoint (ContainerURL)


Navigate to the below URL by replacing the value of the Environment URL and Container URL

<a href="https:///api/data/v9.1/RetrieveAnalyticsStoreAccess(Url=@a,ResourceType=’Folder&#8217;,Permissions=’Read,List’)?@a=’/CDS”>https://&lt;EnvironmentURL>/api/data/v9.1/RetrieveAnalyticsStoreAccess(Url=@a,ResourceType=’Folder’,Permissions=’Read,List’)?@a='<ContainerURL>/CDS’

i.e.

https://mycrm2022.crm.dynamics.com/api/data/v9.1/RetrieveAnalyticsStoreAccess(Url=@a,ResourceType=’Folder’,Permissions=’Read,List’)?@a=%27https://aeth2b4c5907361d483c9641.dfs.core.windows.net/aeth-b986098f-1315-45cc-b8e6-61c5a1a1631a/CDS%27

to get the SAS token (the SAS Token will expire after 1 hour)


Construct the SAS URL which we will use in the Azure Explorer’s connection info  <a href="https:///CDS?https://<ContainerURL>/CDS?<SASToken&gt;

https://aeth2b4c5907361d483c9641.dfs.core.windows.net/aeth-b986098f-1315-45cc-b8e6-61c5a1a1631a/CDS?skoid=3c1e8701-292f-478f-8f42-df7e9cc692c9&sktid=975f013f-7f24-47e8-a7d3-abc4752bf346&skt=2022-11-04T19%3A02%3A44Z&ske=2022-11-04T20%3A18%3A44Z&sks=b&skv=2020-08-04&sv=2020-08-04&se=2022-11-04T20%3A08%3A44Z&sr=d&sp=rl&sdd=1&sig=kKHHJLbb4gjAtTiQCbiuwQ8QrInY33zGEY1FvpxCLK%03D0

Now we have access to the storage

Here we have opened the contact folder just as an example


We only have read-only access, any other access like delete, rename, upload, etc. will fail
