Version License

Silverstripe module to store assets in Azure Blob Storage rather than on the local filesystem. This leverages Flysystem in Silverstripe 4.

Environment setup

The module requires a few environment variables to be set

  • AZURE_CONNECTION_URL: The connection URL as from the dashboard
  • AZURE_CONTAINER_NAME: The name of the container to store public assets in.
  • AZURE_PROTECTED_CONTAINER_NAME: The name of the container for protected assets

By default the module will serve public files from the URL provided in AZURE_CONNECTION_URL (e.g silverstripe-assets.blob.core.windows.net) unless AZURE_PUBLIC_BLOB_DOMAIN is set. Protected assets are always served from the local domain and routed through the permission checking.

Installation

composer require fullscreeninteractive/silverstripe-azure-blob-storage

Note: This currently immediately replaces the built-in local asset store that comes with SilverStripe with one based on Azure. Any files that had previously been uploaded to an existing asset store will be unavailable (though they won't be lost - just run composer remove fullscreeninteractive/silverstripe-azure-blob-storage to remove the module and restore access).

Configuration

Assets are classed as either 'public' or 'protected' by SilverStripe. Public assets can be freely downloaded, whereas protected assets (e.g. assets not yet published) shouldn't be directly accessed.

The module supports this by streaming the contents of protected files down to the browser via the web server (as opposed to linking directly) by default. To ensure that protected assets can't be accessed, ensure you setup an appropriate policy.

CORS

CORS is an HTTP feature that enables a web application running under one domain to access resources in another domain. Make sure your storage account has allowed the websites hostname with GET as an allowed method.
