PowerShell How to find file and folders in Azure Storage Account Blobs and Containers

This script helps to find files and folders on Azure Storage Accounts blobs and containers.

There are two PowerShell variables I have mentioned, First Variable is $searchFile use file extension or names you want to search. Report are generated in file path mentioned under variable $exportCsv.

$searchFile = 'txt|csv|ps1'
$exportCsv = 'c:\temp\files.csv'

$storageAccount = Get-AzStorageAccount
foreach ($sa in $storageAccount)
    $saKey = Get-AzStorageAccountKey -ResourceGroupName $sa.ResourceGroupName -Name $sa.StorageAccountName
    $saContext = New-AzStorageContext -StorageAccountName $sa.StorageAccountName -StorageAccountKey $saKey[1].Value
    $saContainer = Get-AzStorageContainer -Context $saContext
    foreach ($saFolder in $saContainer)
        $files = Get-AzStorageBlob -container $saFolder.Name -Context $saContext | Where-Object {$_.Name -match $searchFile}
        $files | Select Name, @{N='StorageAccountName';E={$_.Context.StorageAccountName}}, @{N='Container';E={$saFolder.Name}} | Export-Csv -NoTypeInformation -Path $exportCsv -Append
