Enabling GitHub Packages with Azure Blob Storage

Set up GitHub Packages with Azure Blob Storage as your external storage.

Warnings:

  • It is critical that you set the restrictive access policies you need for your storage bucket, because GitHub does not apply specific object permissions or additional access control lists (ACLs) to your storage bucket configuration. For example, if you make your bucket public, data in the bucket will be accessible on the public internet.
  • We recommend using a dedicated bucket for GitHub Packages, separate from the bucket you use for GitHub Actions storage.
  • Make sure to configure the bucket you'll want to use in the future. We do not recommend changing your storage after you start using GitHub Packages.

Prerequisites

Before you can enable and configure GitHub Packages on your GitHub Enterprise Server instance, you need to prepare your Azure Blob storage bucket. To prepare your Azure Blob storage bucket, we recommend consulting the official Azure Blob storage docs at the official Azure Blob Storage documentation site.
