SQL Backup to Blob Storage Folders

We have a blob storage for all our servers, and I linked one of our server to that Blob Storage. What I discovered that, the folders I can't assign each database backup to a different folder in Blob Storage. Than means I can't use a Cloud Storage Settings to set different backup to different folders. Is this a future missing or am I missing some functionality.

    Hi, thank you for your forum post.

    No you are not missing functionality.  When support for Azure Blob Storage was added to SQL Backup V10, the ability to select a folder was omitted, which means users cannot set different backup sets to different folders with the Azure storage.

    Also if manually scripting backup jobs, the HOSTED_FOLDER and HOSTED_TAGS keywords should not be used if the your cloud storage is Azure (It is only supported if using AWS S3 bucket).

    I recommend that you vote and comment on this SQL Backup UserVoice topic.

    In the short to medium term there are no plans to add Azure Storage to the HOSTED_FOLDER and HOSTED_TAGS keywords.

    Many Thanks
