Cannot deploy to $web container

When using azure-storage-deploy:1.1.1 if I attempt to deploy to "$web" it strips out the $web and deploys to the $root container.

Hi @Dan Clausen,

The problem here is that the string '$web' is interpreted as a variable within the shell. It is then replaced with the 'web' variable which, because it has not been set, is the empty string. To fix this you will need to escape the '$' character (which indicates that this is a variable). This should be possible by replacing "$web" with "\$web".

For more information on escaping variables have a look at



Well duh, that seems obvious in retrospect and I made the suggested change and the pipeline output does display the $web container now.  However the files are still going to the root container instead of $web.  Any additional suggestions as to what I'm missing?


pipe: microsoft/azure-storage-deploy:1.1.1
SOURCE: 'build'
  DESTINATION: '\$web/'
EXTRA_ARGS: '--dest-key $Azure_Storage_Key'

You need to put the destination in a repository variable.


pipe: microsoft/azure-storage-deploy:1.1.1
SOURCE: 'build'
EXTRA_ARGS: '--dest-key $Azure_Storage_Key'

@Dan Clausen @Ørjan Solli I need to correct that executing pipes, you need to put triple escaping:

DESTINATION: '\\\$web/'

The same resolved question is here

We will also update the docs accordingly. Thanks for raising the question


Regards, Galyna
