Custom BlobStorageProvider

  • Custom BlobStorageProvider
  • I'm trying to replace the OpenAccessBlobStorageProvider with a custom implementation in Sitefinity 6.3.5, where the site is already in production and a whole bunch of media content was added using the default (Database) provider. But I'm having trouble understanding where the provider is used. I would expect it to be used by the Sitefinity HttpHandler or Module to retrieve media content from the database, but when I replace the default with my custom implementation, it doesn't even get instantiated. How is Sitefinity retrieving the content from the database if not by using the provider?

  • Hello Mark,

    You can find the currently used provider in Administration > Settings > Advanced > Libraries > Blob storage > Blob storage providers > Database (screenshot). There you can change it with your own implementation.

    I hope this helps.
