You can configure an Azure Storage Data Connector to import files from an Azure Storage Account, optionally filtering what is imported to only consider particular folders or particular file types.

In order to do this, you will require a Shared Access Signature URL that can be generated through the Azure admin interface.

Configuration in Azure

Go to https://portal.azure.com and then Storage accounts, select the account that you want to import from and click on Shared access signature.

Read permissions are required to the blob service in order for the import to work. The recommended settings for are shown below:

After populating these options, click on Generate SAS and connection string and then copy the Blob service SAS URL value, which is what the Curiosity Data Connector requires.

Configuring Curiosity

Within Curiosity, it will be necessary to configure a Data Connector. To do so, click the menu button at the top left, then click Connect Sources and then Azure Storage.

Click + Add, enter descriptive names for the "Name" and "Source", and paste in the Shared Access Signature Url.

Optionally enter names of folders and / or content types by typing individual entries into the text boxes and clicking the + button to record the value and present a text box for the next value.

Unless you change the Permissions settings, all imported emails will be visible to every User of the Curiosity system. To change this, click on the Edit button alongside the Permissions label:

The default schedule for the import task is for it to run at 1am every night. For information about specifying a different schedule and about running tasks outside of their schedule, click here.

Click Save.
