URL - the base address for the objects in your storage account that is the combination of the account name and the Azure Storage blob endpoint forms. You can enter the account name in the field and change the protocol between http or https.

Container name - name of the container that you have created to organizes the set of blobs, similar to a directory in a file system.

Timeout - set the desired timeout value.

Retry policy - choose the behavior from the available options.

Retry count - set how many times the store should try to save a file

Filename prefix - configure the file name prefix to be used. Click clip0067A to select a date format. You can add custom text as well.
