Question About Setting CacheControl Property For Blob

Jun 16, 2011 at 5:32 PM

I am trying to set the CacheControl property for a BlockBlob that contains a png.  However, no matter what I set for a value in the blank (60, max-age=60, etc.), when I click Save Properties and then view the properties again, the value is erased.  Is there some particular format I need to use, or is the ability to set the CacheControl property not enabled?

Did you ever figure this out? Setting up cache controls seems like a very basic need for images and videos.

This must be a bug ... I'm going to report it over in Issue Tracker. I set the cache control headers programatically on several containers of blobs. I checked them with CloudBerry Explorer, and it shows that they were set properly; however the Azure Storage Explorer doesn't show them as being set. I think this is a bug.
